Remove Excel Menu Bar (Office 2007)

Recommended Posts

Affe

I'm trying to add an excel object into a GUI for the purpose of using it for graphing functions.

I'm currently stuck at the following example set of code, as I cannot seem to remove the menu that comes from Excel (note, you will need an excel file to open with this):

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
;
; Embedding an Excel document inside an AutoIt GUI
;
; Limitations:
;
; 1. Integrating the GUI Menu with the Objects Menu does not work.
;   (they have seperate menu bars)
;

; Initialize my error handler
$oMyError = ObjEvent("AutoIt.Error","MyErrFunc")

;~ $FileName=@ScriptDir & "\Worksheet.xls"
$FileName = FileOpenDialog("Pick a file", @ScriptDir, "Excel Files (*.xls;*.xlsx)")

if not FileExists($FileName) then
  Msgbox (0,"Excel File Test","Can't run this test, because it requires an Excel file in "& $FileName)
  Exit
endif

$oExcelDoc = ObjGet($FileName) ; Get an Excel Object from an existing filename

if IsObj($oExcelDoc) then
    GUICreate ( "Embedded ActiveX Test", 640, 580, (@DesktopWidth-640)/2, (@DesktopHeight-580)/2 , $WS_MINIMIZEBOX +$WS_SYSMENU + $WS_CLIPCHILDREN)

    $GUI_ActiveX    = GUICtrlCreateObj  ( $oExcelDoc, 1, 95 , 400 , 300 )

    For $Bar In $oExcelDoc.CommandBars
        If $Bar.Enabled = True Then $Bar.Enabled = False
        If $Bar.Visible = True Then $Bar.Visible = False
    Next
    $oExcelDoc.Application.DisplayFormulaBar = False
    $oExcelDoc.Application.CommandBars("Shadow Settings").Visible = False
    $oExcelDoc.Application.DisplayScrollBars = True
    $oExcelDoc.Application.DisplayStatusBar = False

    GUISetState (@SW_SHOW)    ;Show GUI

   ; GUI Message loop
    While 1
        $msg = GUIGetMsg()
        Select
            Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE;or $msg = $GUI_FileExit
                ExitLoop
        EndSelect
    Wend

    GUIDelete ()

   ; Don't forget to close your workbook, otherwise Excel will stay in memory after the script exits !
    $oExcelDoc.Close (0)       ; Close the Excel workbook - Save prompt will not open

EndIf


Exit

; This is my custom error handler
Func MyErrFunc()
  $HexNumber=hex($oMyError.number,8)
  Msgbox(0,"AutoItCOM Test","We intercepted a COM Error !"   & @CRLF  & @CRLF & _
             "err.description is: " & @TAB & $oMyError.description  & @CRLF & _
             "err.windescription:"   & @TAB & $oMyError.windescription & @CRLF & _
             "err.number is: "     & @TAB & $HexNumber            & @CRLF & _
             "err.lastdllerror is: "   & @TAB & $oMyError.lastdllerror   & @CRLF & _
             "err.scriptline is: "   & @TAB & $oMyError.scriptline   & @CRLF & _
             "err.source is: "     & @TAB & $oMyError.source       & @CRLF & _
             "err.helpfile is: "       & @TAB & $oMyError.helpfile   & @CRLF & _
             "err.helpcontext is: " & @TAB & $oMyError.helpcontext _
            )
  SetError(1) ; to check for after this function returns
Endfunc

Is there any way to remove the menu bar? All I search seem to still have this issue unresolved.

Do you get an error by the COM error handler?

I searched the web and got the impression that you can't do it the way you do it now. You need to modify the User Interface.

Here is a document that describes what needs to be done.

This is a snippet of code I wrote 4 years ago but it worked then and may give you some direction:

;Turns off all command bars in excel to prevent user from making changes
    For $Bar In $oExcelDoc.CommandBars
        If $Bar.Enabled = True Then $Bar.Enabled = False
        If $Bar.Visible = True Then $Bar.Visible = False
    Next
    $oExcelDoc.Application.DisplayFormulaBar = False
    $oExcelDoc.Application.CommandBars("Shadow Settings").Visible = False
    $oExcelDoc.Application.DisplayScrollBars = True
    $oExcelDoc.Application.DisplayStatusBar = False

That's exactly the code the OP posted in his first post. I tried and it didn't work with the embedded Excel object (Excel 2010 32 bit on Windows 7 64 bit).

NB: I just tried with plain Excel and the embedded ActiveX component - doesn't work for both and returns no COM error.

Okay, I've been trying to see if I can get anywhere with the link you gave me, water.

This is what I have so far...

Below gives a COM error when trying to set the height (unspecified error, number 80020009) :

$oExcelDoc.Application.CommandBars("Ribbon").Controls(1).Height = 4

Below gives no error, but doesn't actually do anything. Note: Using a MsgBox prompt, I can actually read this information, as well as the height info above, I just can't change it...

$oExcelDoc.Application.CommandBars("Ribbon").Enabled = False
    $oExcelDoc.Application.CommandBars("Ribbon").Visible = False

Below gives me a COM error, stating that "The parameter is incorrect" (number 80020009 again):

$oExcelDoc.Application.CommandBars.ExecuteMso("MinimizeRibbon")

Below just showing the MsgBoxes that I used to see if I was indeed accessing the correct parameters:

MsgBox(0, "", $oExcelDoc.Application.CommandBars("Ribbon").Controls(1).Height)
    MsgBox(0, "", $oExcelDoc.Application.CommandBars("Ribbon").Visible)

Anyone able to expand on this, maybe show me where I'm going wrong?

Hello, sorry if I'm committing the crime of "necro-ing" a thread here but having received lots of help from this community, I just felt obliged to post this working version (at least in my 32-bit Win XP PC with MS Excel 2010) for the benefit of those who still need this:

#include <GUIConstants.au3>
#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <WindowsConstants.au3>
;
; Embedding an Excel document inside an AutoIt GUI
;
; Limitations:
;
; 1. Integrating the GUI Menu with the Objects Menu does not work.
;   (they have seperate menu bars)
;

; Initialize my error handler
$oMyError = ObjEvent("AutoIt.Error", "MyErrFunc")

;~ $FileName=@ScriptDir & "\Worksheet.xls"
$FileName = FileOpenDialog("Pick a file", @ScriptDir, "Excel Files (*.xls;*.xlsx)")

If Not FileExists($FileName) Then
    MsgBox(0, "Excel File Test", "Can't run this test, because it requires an Excel file in " & $FileName)
    Exit
EndIf

$oExcelDoc = ObjGet($FileName) ; Get an Excel Object from an existing filename

If IsObj($oExcelDoc) Then
    GUICreate("Embedded ActiveX Test", 640, 580, (@DesktopWidth - 640) / 2, (@DesktopHeight - 580) / 2, $WS_MINIMIZEBOX + $WS_SYSMENU + $WS_CLIPCHILDREN)

    $GUI_ActiveX = GUICtrlCreateObj($oExcelDoc, 1, 95, 400, 300)

    For $Bar In $oExcelDoc.CommandBars
        If $Bar.Enabled = True Then $Bar.Enabled = False
        If $Bar.Visible = True Then $Bar.Visible = False
    Next
    $oExcelDoc.Application.DisplayFormulaBar = False
    $oExcelDoc.Application.CommandBars("Shadow Settings").Visible = False
    $oExcelDoc.Application.DisplayScrollBars = True
    $oExcelDoc.Application.DisplayStatusBar = False
    ControlHide("Embedded ActiveX Test", "", "[CLASS:EXCEL2; INSTANCE:1]")
    ControlHide("Embedded ActiveX Test", "", "[CLASS:EXCEL2; INSTANCE:2]")
    GUISetState(@SW_SHOW) ;Show GUI

    ; GUI Message loop
    While 1
        $msg = GUIGetMsg()
        Select
            Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE ;or $msg = $GUI_FileExit
                ExitLoop
        EndSelect
    WEnd

    GUIDelete()

    ; Don't forget to close your workbook, otherwise Excel will stay in memory after the script exits !
    $oExcelDoc.Close(0) ; Close the Excel workbook - Save prompt will not open

EndIf


Exit

; This is my custom error handler
Func MyErrFunc()
    $HexNumber = Hex($oMyError.number, 8)
    MsgBox(0, "AutoItCOM Test", "We intercepted a COM Error !" & @CRLF & @CRLF & _
            "err.description is: " & @TAB & $oMyError.description & @CRLF & _
            "err.windescription:" & @TAB & $oMyError.windescription & @CRLF & _
            "err.number is: " & @TAB & $HexNumber & @CRLF & _
            "err.lastdllerror is: " & @TAB & $oMyError.lastdllerror & @CRLF & _
            "err.scriptline is: " & @TAB & $oMyError.scriptline & @CRLF & _
            "err.source is: " & @TAB & $oMyError.source & @CRLF & _
            "err.helpfile is: " & @TAB & $oMyError.helpfile & @CRLF & _
            "err.helpcontext is: " & @TAB & $oMyError.helpcontext _
            )
    SetError(1) ; to check for after this function returns
EndFunc   ;==>MyErrFunc

 

I simply added these lines:

ControlHide("Embedded ActiveX Test", "", "[CLASS:EXCEL2; INSTANCE:1]")
ControlHide("Embedded ActiveX Test", "", "[CLASS:EXCEL2; INSTANCE:2]")

      Dear members of the forum,
      I need to open excel files that may or may not need a password and finally move the files that needs password to manual queue.
      Is there a fastest way to do this?
       
      PS: I have a huge respect for the rules of this forum. I am not asking assistance to override any security measure. I just need to segregate the files that needs passwords.

      I was Playing around With AutoIt this evening and wondered how hard it would be to get typeinfo like the COM Viewers do only using AutoIt
      Turns out it was pretty easy.
      A Few Notes:
      CAarray info is unfinished I didn't have any objects to test it on so I left it Limited.
      The Object must have IDispatch exposed (ITypeInfo is derivative)
      Its Just a proof of concept Run with it but don't carry scissors

      Hi guys,
      without including everything (unless you want it)
      I am copying data from a table in chrome and wanting to paste it into excel.
      Copying in Chrome works.
      I can paste it into the field i want by emulating goto -> ctrl V:
      WinActivate($dataload) WinWaitActive($dataload) Sleep(500) $oWorkbook1.Sheets("ItemReturn").Activate Sleep(500) $msg = "Measuring Sheet" conwrite() ttips2() Local Const $xlUp = -4162 With $oWorkbook1.ActiveSheet ; process active sheet $oRangeLast = .UsedRange.SpecialCells($xlCellTypeLastCell) ; get a Range that contains the last used cells $iRowCount = .Range(.Cells(1, 1), .Cells($oRangeLast.Row, "B")).Rows.Count ; get the the row count for the range starting in row/column 1 and ending at the last used row/column $iLastCell = .Cells($iRowCount + 1, "B").End($xlUp).Row ; start in the row following the last used row and move up to the first used cell in column "B" and grab this row number EndWith $NewStartCell = $iLastCell + 2 $msg = "moving to location" conwrite() ttips2() Sleep(250) Send("^g") WinWait("Go To") Sleep(100) Send("B" & $NewStartCell) Sleep(100) Send("{ENTER}") Sleep(500) Send("^v")  
      But, I want to use _excel_rangecopypaste, pasting from the clipboard
      _Excel_RangeCopyPaste($oWorkbook1.ActiveSheet, default, "B" & $NewStartCell,default,$xlPasteValuesAndNumberFormats) If @error Then Exit MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Excel UDF: _Excel_RangeCopy Example 2", "Error pasting cells." & @CRLF & "@error = " & @error & ", @extended = " & @extended) however, this gives me error 4 , extended@:  -2147352567
      How can i fix this or find out how to debug this error?
       
      Thanks
