    Arrow Disable the 'x' close button on a VBA UserForm

    This code will disable the 'x' close button on a Office VBA UserForm.

    Demo with Excel 2003.

    Note: you need to give the user a method of exiting the form or they will be forced to close the app if you also show the user form modally (default).
    Also, you need to Enable Macros for the attached example to run showing the userform at startup.

    Add a new UserForm to an Office app by way of the VBA IDE (press Alt+F11). Then add a command button to give the user a way to dismiss the userform.





    VB Code:
    1. Option Explicit
    2. 'Written By VB/Office Guru™
    3. 'Add a Command Button so you can close the userform
    4. Private Declare Function RemoveMenu Lib "user32" (ByVal hMenu As Long, ByVal nPosition As Long, _
    5. ByVal wFlags As Long) As Long
    6.  
    7. Private Declare Function GetSystemMenu Lib "user32" (ByVal hwnd As Long, ByVal bRevert As Long) As Long
    8.  
    9. Private Declare Function FindWindow Lib "user32.dll" Alias "FindWindowA" (ByVal lpClassName As String, _
    10. ByVal lpWindowName As String) As Long
    11.  
    12. Private Const MF_BYPOSITION = &H400&
    13.  
    14. Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
    15.     Unload Me
    16. End Sub
    17.  
    18. Private Sub UserForm_Initialize()
    19.     Dim lHwnd As Long
    20.     lHwnd = FindWindow("ThunderDFrame", "UserForm1") 'Change to match your userforms caption
    21.     Do While lHwnd = 0
    22.         lHwnd = FindWindow("ThunderDFrame", "UserForm1") 'Change to match your userforms caption
    23.         DoEvents
    24.     Loop
    25.     RemoveMenu GetSystemMenu(lHwnd, 0), 6, MF_BYPOSITION 'When using by position, 6 represents the 7th menu item (including separators)
    26. End Sub

    RobDog888 will this work on the latest version of excel? I need to be able to do this.
