    Custom UI Ribbon - Preserve checkbox checked state on reopening workbook

    Hi everyone!

    I have a custom UI ribbon tab in one of my files which contains a checkbox. When the checkbox is pressed it returns a value of 1 in a specific cell and 0 if unchecked. When I close this workbook and reopen, even though the cell has a value of 1, the checkbox appears unchecked.

    I was wondering if there is a way to preserve the last checked state of the checkbox before the workbook is closed? I am using the below code:

    You need to return the stored value in the callback

    Also ensure the control ID property matches with the text you are using.
    As you original code should have forced the checkbox to be ticked as you were always returning True.

    Re: Custom UI Ribbon - Preserve checkbox checked state on reopening workbook

    Hi Andy,

    Thank you for your reply. I made the changes as suggested, however, the checkbox still appears unchecked even if it's value is 1. As you said, this might be something to do with the control ID not matching the text. In the custom UI, the ID of the checkbox is "cb_RD". I am attaching a sample file and the checkbox is located in the "Financial Analysis" tab in the ribbon. Is there something that I am doing wrong?

    Would be really grateful if you could take a look.

    Thanks

    All good, I think I figured out what I was missing - I hadn't enabled the "getpressed" property in the custom UI!.

    Thank you so much for your help.

    Cheers
