    trying to get a string change the font to Calibri

    Good day,

    I have a peace of code and this is created from a range of cells in excel this i want to send via mail in the calibri font but i cant get it to be changed to this font.
    This is the code:

    Code:
     str = "C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Thunderbird\thunderbird"
        str = str & " -compose " & Chr(34) & "mailto:" & strTo & "?"
        str = str & "CC=" & Chr(34) & "mailto:" & strCC & "&"
        str = str & "subject=" & Chr(34) & strSubject & Chr(34) & "&"
        str = str & "body=" & Chr(34) & strBody & Chr(34)
        Call Shell(str, vbNormalFocus)
    The strBody is the one that needs to be changed.
    I have tried it in the email program but it does not change the font when it has been send to there
    the cell range i selected is also Calibri

    Thanks in Advance

    Do you have your Thunderbird e-mail client program set to send e-mail in HTML format? If not, then font changes won't work.

    Re: trying to get a string change the font to Calibri

    if you send the string body to thunderbird in correctly formatted html code that includes the font tags, it might work not that i have ever tried anything to do with thunderbird

    it would also be dependent on the recipient having the font installed
    i do my best to test code works before i post it, but sometimes am unable to do so for some reason, and usually say so if this is the case.
    Note code snippets posted are just that and do not include error handling that is required in real world applications, but avoid On Error Resume Next

    dim all variables as required as often i have done so elsewhere in my code but only posted the relevant part

    come back and mark your original post as resolved if your problem is fixed

    Re: trying to get a string change the font to Calibri

    Yes i have it set to send in HTML to send an i set the font to Calibri in thunderbird. but the text that is in the body stays variable width.
    when i select all the text in the body and i change it to calibri it works fine. The body is a range of cells and not in html code.
    I use this code to select the range:

    Code:
    Function rng2text(rng As Range) As String
    Dim arr As Variant
    Dim lngRows As Long
    Dim intCols As Integer
    Dim rowcount As Long
    Dim colcount As Integer
    Dim colsize As Variant
    Dim strlen As Long
    
        arr = rng
        lngRows = UBound(arr, 1)
        intCols = UBound(arr, 2)
        ReDim colsize(intCols)
        For rowcount = 1 To lngRows
            For colcount = 1 To intCols
                If Len(arr(rowcount, colcount)) + 5 > colsize(colcount) Then _
                colsize(colcount) = Len(arr(rowcount, colcount)) + 5
            Next
        Next
        For rowcount = 1 To lngRows
            For colcount = 1 To intCols
                strlen = colsize(colcount) - Len(arr(rowcount, colcount))
                rng2text = rng2text & arr(rowcount, colcount) & String(strlen, Chr(2))
            Next
            rng2text = rng2text & "%0D%0A"
        Next

    Re: trying to get a string change the font to Calibri

    while mailto still works, it was only designed for plain text emails
    you would need to convert the excel range to an html table, including the font you want to display

    something like
    Code:
    for each rw in myrange
      str = str & "<tr>"
      for each cel in rw
        str = str & "<td align='right'>" & cel & "</td>"   ' alignment optional
      next
      str = str & "</tr>" & vbnewline      ' the new line is not required for the html, just to make the str easier to read in vb
    next
    if you want different alignment or other options for your cells it might be better not to loop all the cells in the row, but jusy use a single line
    Code:
    str = str & "<tr><td>" & Text1(i) & "<td>" & Text3(i) & "<td align='right'>" & lprice & "</tr>" & vbNewLine
    (copied from existing code) change the text boxes to the appropriate cells

    also you probably need html header tags as well as font tags
    none of the above is tested, just typed in the browser to give you the idea
    i do my best to test code works before i post it, but sometimes am unable to do so for some reason, and usually say so if this is the case.

    Re: trying to get a string change the font to Calibri

    allright but i do not know where to put this code,
    This is the full code:
    Code:
    Sub tbSendMAster2()
    ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets("SeaSend").Unprotect Password:="Oliedom43"
     Dim dteDate As Date
         Dim txtDate As String
        
        dteDate = Now()
        
        txtDate = CStr(dteDate)
       txtDate = Format(txtDate, "dd-mm-yyyy")
      
    
    
        TB_MailSend "lala@lala.com", "lalala@lalalal.nl", "MV blabla" & "Voy. " _
        & ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets("SeaSend").Range("E4") & " Sea report " _
         & " " & txtDate, _
         " " & rng2text(ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets("SeaSend").Range("A1:F23"))
         
    ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets("SeaSend").Protect Password:="Oliedom43"
    
    End Sub
    
    Public Function TB_MailSend(strTo As String, strCC As String, strSubject As String, strBody As String)
    Dim str As String
    
    'TB_MailSend "fred@fred.com", "my Subject", "My Body"
        str = "C:\Program Files (x86)\Mozilla Thunderbird\thunderbird"
        str = str & " -compose " & Chr(34) & "mailto:" & strTo & "?"
        str = str & "CC=" & Chr(34) & "mailto:" & strCC & "&"
        str = str & "subject=" & Chr(34) & strSubject & Chr(34) & "&"
        str = str & "body=" & Chr(34) & strBody & Chr(34)
        Call Shell(str, vbNormalFocus)
    
    End Function
    
    Function rng2text(rng As Range) As String
    Dim arr As Variant
    Dim lngRows As Long
    Dim intCols As Integer
    Dim rowcount As Long
    Dim colcount As Integer
    Dim colsize As Variant
    Dim strlen As Long
    
        arr = rng
        lngRows = UBound(arr, 1)
        intCols = UBound(arr, 2)
        ReDim colsize(intCols)
        For rowcount = 1 To lngRows
            For colcount = 1 To intCols
                If Len(arr(rowcount, colcount)) + 5 > colsize(colcount) Then _
                colsize(colcount) = Len(arr(rowcount, colcount)) + 5
            Next
        Next
        For rowcount = 1 To lngRows
            For colcount = 1 To intCols
                strlen = colsize(colcount) - Len(arr(rowcount, colcount))
                rng2text = rng2text & arr(rowcount, colcount) & String(strlen, Chr(2))
            Next
            rng2text = rng2text & "%0D%0A"
        Next
        
    End Function
    Thank you for your help

    Re: trying to get a string change the font to Calibri

    where to put this code,
    it would replace your existing rng2text, i would try a new function rng2html, then no need to change any of the existing code
    TB_MailSend "lala@lala.com", "lalala@lalalal.nl", "MV blabla" & "Voy. " _
    & ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets("SeaSend").Range("E4") & " Sea report " _
    & " " & txtDate, _
    " " & rng2text(ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets("SeaSend").Range("A1:F23"))
    you can try a simplified version first to see if it works at all
    i do my best to test code works before i post it, but sometimes am unable to do so for some reason, and usually say so if this is the case.
    Note code snippets posted are just that and do not include error handling that is required in real world applications, but avoid On Error Resume Next

    dim all variables as required as often i have done so elsewhere in my code but only posted the relevant part

    Re: trying to get a string change the font to Calibri

    Thanks for the pointer, i copied you code into a new function but i am getting nothing in the body of the message

    Code:
    Function rng2html(rng As Range) As String
    
    Dim str As String
    
    For Each Rw In rng
      str = str & "<tr>"
      For Each cell In Rw
        str = str & "<td align='Left'>" & cell & "</td>"   ' alignment optional
      Next
      str = str & "</tr>" & vbNewLine      ' the new line is not required for the html, just to make the str easier to read in vb
    Next
    
    
    End Function

    Re: trying to get a string change the font to Calibri

    you would need to assign the string to the return of the function, just before end function
    Code:
    rng2html = str

    in that case it would appear that the email is sent in plain text only and no changes can be made using the mailto method

    you should consider some alternative method of sending emails
