How to auto change shape size based/dependent on specified cell value in Excel?

If you want to automatically change the shape size based on the value of a specified cell, this article can help you.

Auto change shape size based on specified cell value with VBA code


Auto change shape size based on specified cell value with VBA code


The following VBA code can help you to change a certain shape size based on specified cell value in current worksheet. Please do as follows.

1. Right click the sheet tab with shape you need to change size, and then click View Code from the right-clicking menu.

2. In the Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications window, copy and paste the following VBA code into the Code window.

VBA code: Auto change shape size based on specified cell value in Excel

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
    On Error Resume Next
    If Target.Row = 2 And Target.Column = 1 Then
        Call SizeCircle("Oval 2", Val(Target.Value))
    End If
End Sub
Sub SizeCircle(Name As String, Diameter)
    Dim xCenterX As Single
    Dim xCenterY As Single
    Dim xCircle As Shape
    Dim xDiameter As Single
    On Error GoTo ExitSub
    xDiameter = Diameter
    If xDiameter > 10 Then xDiameter = 10
    If xDiameter < 1 Then xDiameter = 1
    Set xCircle = ActiveSheet.Shapes(Name)
    With xCircle
        xCenterX = .Left + (.Width / 2)
        xCenterY = .Top + (.Height / 2)
        .Width = Application.CentimetersToPoints(xDiameter)
        .Height = Application.CentimetersToPoints(xDiameter)
        .Left = xCenterX - (.Width / 2)
        .Top = xCenterY - (.Height / 2)
    End With
ExitSub:
End Sub

Note: In the code, “Oval 2” is the shape name you will change its size. And Row = 2, Column = 1 means that the size of shape “Oval 2” will be changed with the value in A2. Please change them as you need.

For auto resizing multiple shapes based on different cell values, please apply the below VBA code.

VBA code: Auto resize multiple shapes based on different specified cells' value in Excel

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
    Dim xAddress As String
    On Error Resume Next
    If Target.CountLarge = 1 Then
        xAddress = Target.Address(0, 0)
        If xAddress = "A1" Then
            Call SizeCircle("Oval 1", Val(Target.Value))
        ElseIf xAddress = "A2" Then
            Call SizeCircle("Smiley Face 3", Val(Target.Value))
        ElseIf xAddress = "A3" Then
            Call SizeCircle("Heart 2", Val(Target.Value))
        End If
    End If
End Sub

Sub SizeCircle(Name As String, Diameter)
    Dim xCenterX As Single
    Dim xCenterY As Single
    Dim xCircle As Shape
    Dim xDiameter As Single
    On Error GoTo ExitSub
    xDiameter = Diameter
    If xDiameter > 10 Then xDiameter = 10
    If xDiameter < 1 Then xDiameter = 1
    Set xCircle = ActiveSheet.Shapes(Name)
    With xCircle
        xCenterX = .Left + (.Width / 2)
        xCenterY = .Top + (.Height / 2)
        .Width = Application.CentimetersToPoints(xDiameter)
        .Height = Application.CentimetersToPoints(xDiameter)
        .Left = xCenterX - (.Width / 2)
        .Top = xCenterY - (.Height / 2)
    End With
ExitSub:
End Sub

Notes:

1) In the code, “Oval 1”, “Smiley Face 3” and “Heart 3” are the shapes' name you will change their sizes automatically. And A1, A2 andA3 are the cells which values you will auto resize shapes based on.
2) If you want to add more shapes, please add lines "ElseIf xAddress = "A3" Then" and "Call SizeCircle("Heart 2", Val(Target.Value))" above the first "End If" line in the code. And change the cell address and shape name based on your needs.

3. Press Alt + Q keys simultaneously to close the Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications window.

From now on, when you change the value in cell A2, the size of shape Oval 2 will be changed automatically. See screenshot:

Or change the values in cell A1, A2 and A3 to resize the corresponding shapes "Oval 1", "Smiley Face 3" and "Heart 3" automatically. See screenshot:

Note: The shape size will no longer change when the cell value is greater than 10.

Hi,
I have tried to use your post to write my own VBA code but don't seem to be getting very far. Mainly because I don't really understand VBA and I'm just trying to adapt your. I was wondering if you could help. I am wanting to change the length of a rectangle depending on the value in a cell. I would like the width if the rectangle to stay the same but the length to change. I would like both left hand vertices to stay in the same place and it to lengthen to the right. Is this possible?
Thank you

Dear lan,
Hope the following VBA code can solve your problem. (Please replace the Oval 1 with the shape name of your own)

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
On Error Resume Next
If Target.Row = 2 And Target.Column = 1 Then
Call SizeCircle("Oval 1", Val(Target.Value))
End If
End Sub
Sub SizeCircle(Name As String, Diameter)
Dim xCircle As Shape
Dim xDiameter As Single
On Error GoTo ExitSub
xDiameter = Diameter
If xDiameter > 10 Then xDiameter = 10
If xDiameter < 1 Then xDiameter = 1
Set xCircle = ActiveSheet.Shapes(Name)
xCircle.ScaleWidth 1.5, msoFalse, msoScaleFromTopLeft
With xCircle
.LockAspectRatio = msoFalse
.Width = Application.CentimetersToPoints(xDiameter)
End With
ExitSub:
End Sub

Hi, is there a way that I can make the shape expand on two dimensions (instead of increasing the shape size by 5, increase it 5 on the horizontal and 3 on the vertical)?
This comment was minimized by the moderator on the site
Dear Sam,
The following VBA script can help you solve the problem. And the two dimensions are cell A1 and B1.

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
On Error Resume Next
If Target.Count = 1 Then
If Not Intersect(Target, Range("A1:B1")) Is Nothing Then
Call SizeCircle("Oval 2", Array(Val(Range("A1").Value), Val(Range("B1").Value)))
End If
End If
End Sub
Sub SizeCircle(Name As String, Arr As Variant)
Dim I As Long
Dim xCenterX As Single
Dim xCenterY As Single
Dim xCircle As Shape
On Error GoTo ExitSub
For I = 0 To UBound(Arr)
If Arr(I) > 10 Then
Arr(I) = 10
ElseIf Arr(I) < 1 Then
Arr(I) = 1
End If
Next
Set xCircle = ActiveSheet.Shapes(Name)
With xCircle
xCenterX = .Left + (.Width / 2)
xCenterY = .Top + (.Height / 2)
.Width = Application.CentimetersToPoints(Arr(0))
.Height = Application.CentimetersToPoints(Arr(1))
.Left = xCenterX - (.Width / 2)
.Top = xCenterY - (.Height / 2)
End With
ExitSub:
End Sub

Is there a way to do this with Images? I don't seem to be having any luck using the code as posted.

5 Images in a leaderboard, I want the Images in 1st or tied for 1st to be larger. Therefore I've 2 fixed image sizes, either 1x2 for not first or 2x4 for 1st placed (for example). I've got ranking already set-up so can use that to create sizes in specific cells for each image (ie use an IF statement so IF RANK is 1st size width is 2). My VBA is pretty weak though.

Basically I want - on sheet update - look at image size cells and set each image size to the specific image size cells result. I can't see in the VBA above how that exactly works but I think it should be easy!

Hi Crytal,

I would like to ask you, if there is a way to select color (red cell = red form) and name from specific cells . could it also be possible to create forms automatically from VBA?

Thank you so much in advance :)

is there a way for this to work if the cell your using to set the size is the result of a formula rather than just a static value you manualy enter?

Hi mathnz,The VBA code below can help you solve the problem.You just need to change the value cells and the shape names in the code based on your own data.
<div data-tag="code">Private Sub Worksheet_Calculate()
'Updated by Extendoffice 20211105
On Error Resume Next
Call SizeCircle("Oval 1", Val(Range("A1").Value)) 'A1 is the value cell, Oval 1 is the shape name
Call SizeCircle("Smiley Face 2", Val(Range("A2").Value))
Call SizeCircle("Heart 3", Val(Range("A3").Value))

End Sub
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
Dim xAddress As String
On Error Resume Next
If Target.CountLarge = 1 Then
xAddress = Target.Address(0, 0)
If xAddress = "A1" Then
Call SizeCircle("Oval 1", Val(Target.Value))
ElseIf xAddress = "A2" Then
Call SizeCircle("Smiley Face 2", Val(Target.Value))
ElseIf xAddress = "A3" Then
Call SizeCircle("Heart 3", Val(Target.Value))

End If
End If
End Sub

Sub SizeCircle(Name As String, Diameter)
Dim xCenterX As Single
Dim xCenterY As Single
Dim xCircle As Shape
Dim xDiameter As Single
On Error GoTo ExitSub
xDiameter = Diameter
If xDiameter > 10 Then xDiameter = 10
If xDiameter < 1 Then xDiameter = 1
Set xCircle = ActiveSheet.Shapes(Name)
With xCircle
xCenterX = .Left + (.Width / 2)
xCenterY = .Top + (.Height / 2)
.Width = Application.CentimetersToPoints(xDiameter)
.Height = Application.CentimetersToPoints(xDiameter)
.Left = xCenterX - (.Width / 2)
.Top = xCenterY - (.Height / 2)
End With
ExitSub:
End Sub
