SmartTag Object

SmartTag Object [Excel 2003 VBA Language Reference]

Office 2003
SmartTags
SmartTag
Multiple objects

Represents an identifier that is assigned to a cell.

Using the SmartTag object

Use the Add method of the SmartTags collection to return a SmartTag object.

Once a SmartTag object is returned, you can store extra metadata to a smart tag by using the Add method with the Properties property.

See the following example for a demonstration of this feature. This example adds a smart tag titled "MSFT" to cell A1, then adds extra metadata called "Market" with the value of "Nasdaq" to the smart tag and then returns the value of the property to the user. This example assumes the host system is connected to the Internet.

Sub UseProperties()

    Dim strLink As String
    Dim strType As String

    ' Define SmartTag variables.
    strLink = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:smarttags#StockTickerSymbol"
    strType = "stockview"

    ' Enable smart tags to be embedded and recognized.
    ActiveWorkbook.SmartTagOptions.EmbedSmartTags = True
    Application.SmartTagRecognizers.Recognize = True

    Range("A1").Formula = "MSFT"

    ' Add a property for MSFT smart tag and define its value.
    Range("A1").SmartTags.Add(strLink).Properties.Add _
        Name:="Market", Value:="Nasdaq"

    ' Notify the user of the smart tag's value.
    MsgBox Range("A1").SmartTags.Add(strLink).Properties("Market").Value
End Sub
		

To view the extra metadata, use the XML property of the SmartTag object. This example, which builds upon the previous example, displays the extra metadata that was added to the smart tag in cell A1. The metadata for this smart tag represents the XML that would be passed to the action handler. This example assumes the host system is connected to the Internet.

Sub CheckXML()

    Dim strLink As String
    Dim strType As String

    ' Define SmartTag variables.
    strLink = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:smarttags#StockTickerSymbol"
    strType = "stockview"

    ' Enable smart tags to be embedded and recognized.
    ActiveWorkbook.SmartTagOptions.EmbedSmartTags = True
    Application.SmartTagRecognizers.Recognize = True

    Range("A1").Formula = "MSFT"

    ' Display the sample of the XML.
    MsgBox Range("A1").SmartTags.Add(strLink).XML

End Sub
