Parameter Property

CommandBarButton.Parameter Property (Office)

Gets or sets a string that an application can use to execute a command from a CommandBarButton control. Read/write.

Note Note

The use of CommandBars in some Microsoft Office applications has been superseded by the new ribbon component of the Microsoft Office Fluent user interface. For more information, search Help for the keyword "ribbon."

expression .Parameter

expression A variable that represents a CommandBarButton object.

Return Value


If the specified parameter is set for a built-in control, the application can modify its default behavior if it can parse and use the new value. If the parameter is set for custom controls, it can be used to send information to Visual Basic procedures, or it can be used to hold information about the control (similar to a second Tag property value).

This example assigns a new parameter to a control and sets the focus to the new button.

Set myControl = CommandBars("Custom").Controls(4) 
With myControl 
    .Copy , 1 
    .Parameter = "2" 
End With
