Hide Excel on start
“Hide Excel on start” is a special feature to beautify the end user interface and allows to make Excel grid invisible.
This interface should be coded by VBA.
“Hide Excel on start” does not affect on protection rate of compiled EXE application.
Please download the following two examples to find out how the “Hide Excel on start” feature works.
samplevba_he.exe file was compiled for Excel 32-bit and Excel 64-bt with enabled “Hide Excel” option.
samplevba.exe file was compiled with disabled “Hide Excel” option.
Original SampleVBA.xls file you may find in the DoneEx XCell Compiler installation folder.
If you take a look at the example you will see that it contains the custom form.
In case of using ‘Hide Excel’ option this form will be shown instead of the original Excel interface in the moment when you launch EXE file.
To achieve that you need to call your VBA UserForm from from the Workbook_Open procedure.
Private Sub Workbook_Open() MainForm.Show vbModal End Sub
