Excel VBA to change background image of shape by clicking on shape

0 votes

First time posting for assistance that, despite my best efforts, I can't find. For someone who knows what they are doing, this must be simple.

I'm seeking for VBA that will let me click on a shape and have it cycle between backdrop images that I've saved on my PC. I've pasted two sets of code below that I found to be a decent place to start, but I'm not sure how to combine them to produce the outcome I want.

Ultimately, I want each click on a shape to keep cycling through the following command:

  1. Initial Shape: transparent background
  2. Single Click on Shape: Transparent background replaced with BackgroundImage1
  3. Another Single Click on Shape: BackgroundImage1 replaced with BackgroundImage2
  4. Another Single Click on Shape: BackgroundImage2 replaced with transparent background

I've found this code that works well to change color of the shape by clicking:

Sub trafficlight()
Dim WhoAmI As String, sh As Shape
    WhoAmI = Application.Caller
    With ActiveSheet.Shapes(WhoAmI).Fill.ForeColor
        Select Case .RGB
            Case vbRed
                .RGB = vbGreen
            Case vbGreen
                .RGB = vbYellow
            Case Else
                .RGB = vbRed
        End Select
    End With
End Sub

And then this code to change the shape with a image saved on my computer:

Sub Rectangle9_Click()
Dim WhoAmI As String, sh As Shape
    WhoAmI = Application.Caller
    With ActiveSheet.Shapes(WhoAmI).Fill
        .Visible = msoTrue
        .UserPicture "C:\Users\username\Desktop\BackgroundImage1.png"
        .TextureTile = msoFalse
    End With
End Sub

Can someone please help me with this?

You need to keep track of what image is currently displayed. You could set an integer for each time the image changes.

Option Explicit

Sub ChangeShapePic()
Static i As Integer

With ActiveSheet.Shapes(Application.Caller).Fill
    Select Case i
        Case 0
            .UserPicture ("C:\Users\username\Desktop\BackgroundImage1.png")
            i = 1
        Case 1
            .UserPicture ("C:\Users\username\Desktop\BackgroundImage2.png")
            i = 2
        Case 2
            .UserPicture ("C:\Users\username\Desktop\BackgroundImage3.png")
            i = 3
        Case 3
           .Solid
           .Transparency = 0#
            i = 0
    End Select
End With
End Sub
