Class UniqueValues (Excel VBA)

The UniqueValues object uses the DupeUnique property to return or set an enum that determines whether the rule should look for duplicate or unique values in the range.

The main procedures of class UniqueValues are FormatConditions.Add, FormatConditions.AddAboveAverage, FormatConditions.AddColorScale, FormatConditions.AddDatabar, FormatConditions.AddIconSetCondition, FormatConditions.AddTop10, FormatConditions.AddUniqueValues, FormatConditions.Delete and Delete

Set

To use a UniqueValues class variable it first needs to be instantiated, for example

Dim uvs as UniqueValues
Set uvs = ActiveCell.FormatConditions(Index:=1)

The following procedures can be used to set variables of type UniqueValues: Range.FormatConditions, FormatConditions.AddUniqueValues, FormatConditions.AddUniqueValues, FormatConditions.AddUniqueValues, FormatConditions.AddUniqueValues, FormatConditions.AddUniqueValues, FormatConditions.AddUniqueValues and FormatConditions.AddUniqueValues

For Each

Here is an example of processing the UniqueValues items in a collection.

Dim uvsFormatCondition As UniqueValues
For Each uvsFormatCondition In ActiveCell.FormatConditions
	
Next uvsFormatCondition

Themes

The following procedures in this class have been grouped together and are described on a separate theme page

Add with its procedures FormatConditions.Add, FormatConditions.AddAboveAverage, FormatConditions.AddDatabar, FormatConditions.AddIconSetCondition and FormatConditions.AddTop10

Methods

These are the main methods of the UniqueValues class

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.

ActiveCell.FormatConditions.Delete

Delete - Deletes the specified conditional formatting rule object.

ActiveCell.FormatConditions(1).Delete

Other Methods

FormatConditions.Item - Returns a single object from a collection.

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.

Properties

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.

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.

DupeUnique returns or sets one of the constants of the XlDupeUnique enumeration, which specifies if the conditional formatting rule is looking for unique or duplicate values.

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.

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.
