Class AboveAverage (Excel VBA)
The class AboveAverage represents an above average visual of a conditional formatting rule. Applies a color or fill to a range or selection to help you see the value of a cell relative to other cells.
The main procedures of class AboveAverage are Delete, FormatConditions.Add, FormatConditions.AddAboveAverage, FormatConditions.AddColorScale, FormatConditions.AddDatabar, FormatConditions.AddIconSetCondition, FormatConditions.AddTop10, FormatConditions.AddUniqueValues and FormatConditions.Delete
To use a AboveAverage class variable it first needs to be instantiated, for example
Dim aae as AboveAverage Set aae = ActiveCell.FormatConditions(Index:=1)
The following procedures can be used to set variables of type AboveAverage: FormatConditions.AddAboveAverage, FormatConditions.AddAboveAverage, FormatConditions.AddAboveAverage, FormatConditions.AddAboveAverage, FormatConditions.AddAboveAverage, FormatConditions.AddAboveAverage, FormatConditions.AddAboveAverage and Range.FormatConditions
Here is an example of processing the AboveAverage items in a collection.
Dim aaeFormatCondition As AboveAverage For Each aaeFormatCondition In ActiveCell.FormatConditions Next aaeFormatCondition
The following procedures in this class have been grouped together and are described on a separate theme page
These are the main methods of the AboveAverage class
Delete - Deletes the specified conditional formatting rule object.
FormatConditions.AddColorScale - Returns a new ColorScale colorscale representing a conditional formatting rule that uses gradations in cell colors to indicate relative differences in the values of cells included in a selected range.
Dim lngColorScaleType As Long: lngColorScaleType = Dim cseAddColorScale As ColorScale Set cseAddColorScale = ActiveCell.FormatConditions.AddColorScale(ColorScaleType:=lngColorScaleType)
FormatConditions.AddUniqueValues - Returns a new UniqueValues uniquevalues representing a conditional formatting rule for the specified range.
Dim uvsAddUniqueValues As UniqueValues Set uvsAddUniqueValues = ActiveCell.FormatConditions.AddUniqueValues()
FormatConditions.Delete - Deletes the object.
ModifyAppliesToRange - Sets the cell range to which this formatting rule applies.
SetFirstPriority - Sets the priority value for this conditional formatting rule to "1" so that it will be evaluated before all other rules on the worksheet.
SetLastPriority - Sets the evaluation order for this conditional formatting rule so that it is evaluated after all other rules on the worksheet.
FormatConditions.Item - Returns a single object from a collection.
AboveBelow returns or sets one of the constants of the XlAboveBelow enumeration, specifying if the conditional formatting rule looks for cell values above or below the range average or standard deviation.
AppliesTo returns a Range object specifying the cell range to which the formatting rule is applied.
Borders returns a Borders collection that specifies the formatting of cell borders if the conditional formatting rule evaluates to True.
CalcFor returns or sets one of the constants of the XlCalcFor enumeration, which specifies the scope of data to be evaluated for the conditional format in a PivotTable report.
Font returns a Font object that specifies the font formatting if the conditional formatting rule evaluates to True.
Interior returns an Interior object that specifies a cell's interior attributes for a conditional formatting rule that evaluates to True.
NumberFormat returns or sets the number format applied to a cell if the conditional formatting rule evaluates to True.
NumStdDev returns or sets the numeric standard deviation for an AboveAverage object.
Parent returns the parent object for the specified object. Read-only.
Priority returns or sets the priority value of the conditional formatting rule. The priority determines the order of evaluation when multiple conditional formatting rules exist on a worksheet.
PTCondition returns a Boolean value indicating if the conditional format is being applied to a PivotTable.
ScopeType returns or sets one of the constants of the XlPivotConditionScope enumeration, which determines the scope of the conditional format when it is applied to a PivotTable.
StopIfTrue returns or sets a Boolean value that determines if additional formatting rules on the cell should be evaluated if the current rule evaluates to True.
Type returns one of the constants of the XlFormatConditionType enumeration, which specifies the type of conditional format.
FormatConditions.Count returns a Long value that represents the number of objects in the collection.
FormatConditions.Parent returns the parent object for the specified object. Read-only.
