[Solved] Create borders around excel range

Recommended Posts

Sorry if this is a repost, but having some trouble searching for the answer and pretty tired right now.

I'm just wondering how to make a border around a range of cells in Excel. I want the regular lines created by selecting "All Borders" option around F2:G3

I saw this code:

With $oExcel.ActiveSheet.range("F2:G3")
    .Select
    .Borders($xlEdgeBottom).LineStyle = $xlContinuous
    .Borders($xlEdgeBottom).Weight = $xlThick
    .Borders($xlEdgeBottom).ColorIndex = $xlAutomatic
EndWith

but I get errors of these variables not existing. It seems these no longer exist in the "#include <Excel.au3>"

Is there another include file I need?

I got this to work for highlighting cells, wondering if there is a option similar to this for all borders?

$oExcel.ActiveSheet.Range("F2:G3").Interior.ColorIndex = 6

Thanks

Thanks Water.

 

Didn't figure out a way to turn it into a one liner of code, to get just outside border for range, but can now get it to work with writing something for every case (Top, Bot, Left, Right).

Also from what you sent was able to write something to get all borders without having to write a line for top, bot, left, right. Might be useful to someone in the future

;Equivalent to "All Borders" for range given
    $oExcel.ActiveSheet.range("F2:G3").Borders.LineStyle = 1

      Hey,
      as part of a larger Programm I am trying to copy the values from one cell in an Excel file to another. The code I am using is the folowing.
       
      Local $oExcel = _Excel_Open() If @error Then Exit MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Excel UDF: _Excel_RangeCopy Example", "Error creating the Excel application object." & @CRLF & "@error = " & @error & ", @extended = " & @extended) _Excel_RangeCopyPaste($oExcel.ActiveSheet, "V4:W43", "X4", False, $xlPasteValues, Default, True) If @error Then Exit MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Excel UDF: _Excel_RangeCopy Example 4", "Error copying rows." & @CRLF & "@error = " & @error & ", @extended = " & @extended) MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Excel UDF: _Excel_RangeCopy Example 4", "2 Rows successfully pasted from the clipboard to row 1.") As I understood it the option $xlPasteValues should do the trick  but it is still copying the inserted formulas. I attached a test code and excel file.
      Thanks for the help Simon

      An "improper" "unusual" use of Excel
      the script allows the creation of artistic images by simply coloring the background of the individual cells of the Excel workbook.
      Although definitely useless ... I find it quite funny though
      have a good time
      many thanks to @UEZ , @Malkey , @water
      p.s.
      I think the pixelite + color to array process can be simplified, but I used the two ready-made functions provided by UEZ and Malkey. I thank both of you (credits  and links in listing)
      p.p.s.
      strange behaviour: while excell is filling cells, if you move the mouse pointer off the excell window, the fill speed increases ... (?)
