IconCriterion Interface

Represents the criterion for an individual icon in an icon set. The criterion specifies the range of values and the threshold type associated with the icon in an icon set conditional formatting rule.

public interface IconCriterion

All of the criteria for an icon set conditional format are contained in an IconCriteria collection. You can access each IconCriterion object in the collection by passing an index into the collection. See the example for details.

The following code example creates a range of numbers representing test scores and then applies an icon set conditional formatting rule to that range. The type of icon set is then changed from the default icons to a five-arrow icon set. Finally, the threshold type is modified from percentile to a hard-coded number.

Sub CreateIconSetCF()    Dim cfIconSet As IconSetCondition        'Fill cells with sample data    With ActiveSheet        .Range("C1") = 55        .Range("C2") = 92        .Range("C3") = 88        .Range("C4") = 77        .Range("C5") = 66        .Range("C6") = 93        .Range("C7") = 76        .Range("C8") = 80        .Range("C9") = 79        .Range("C10") = 83        .Range("C11") = 66        .Range("C12") = 74    End With        Range("C1:C12").Select          'Create an icon set conditional format for the created sample data range    Set cfIconSet = Selection.FormatConditions.AddIconSetCondition        'Change the icon set to a five-arrow icon set    cfIconSet.IconSet = ActiveWorkbook.IconSets(xl5Arrows)        'The IconCriterion collection contains all IconCriteria    'By indexing into the collection you can modify each criterion    With cfIconSet.IconCriteria(1)        .Type = xlConditionValueNumber        .Value = 0        .Operator = 7    End With    With cfIconSet.IconCriteria(2)        .Type = xlConditionValueNumber        .Value = 60        .Operator = 7    End With    With cfIconSet.IconCriteria(3)        .Type = xlConditionValueNumber        .Value = 70        .Operator = 7    End With    With cfIconSet.IconCriteria(4)        .Type = xlConditionValueNumber        .Value = 80        .Operator = 7    End With    With cfIconSet.IconCriteria(5)        .Type = xlConditionValueNumber        .Value = 90        .Operator = 7    End With        End Sub
