Gets or sets a string that determines where a command bar will be saved. The string is defined and interpreted by the application. Read/write.

expression. Context

expression A variable that represents a CommandBar object.


You can set the Context property only for custom command bars. This property will fail if the application doesn't recognize the context string, or if the application doesn't support changing context strings programmatically.


This example displays a message box containing the context string for the command bar named "Custom". This example works in Microsoft Word and other applications that support the Context property.

Set myBar = CommandBars _ 
    .Add(Name:="Custom", Position:=msoBarTop, _ 
With myBar 
    .Controls.Add Type:=msoControlButton, ID:=2 
    .Visible = True  
End With 
MsgBox (myBar.Context)
