Represents a button control on a command bar.

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The use of CommandBars in some Microsoft Office applications has been superseded by the new ribbon component of the Microsoft Office Fluent user interface.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."

Use Controls(index), where index is the index number of the control, to return a CommandBarButton object. Note that the Type property of the control must be msoControlButton. Assuming that the second control on the command bar named "Custom" is a button, the following example changes the style of that button.

Set c = CommandBars("Custom").Controls(2) 
With c 
If .Type = msoControlButton Then 
    If .Style = msoButtonIcon Then 
        .Style = msoButtonIconAndCaption 
        .Style = msoButtonIcon 
    End If 
End If 
End With
