excel – How to disabe the "Project – VBA Project" pane?

Posted by: admin May 14, 2020 Leave a comment


This macro will hide/close the VBE Main Window:

Sub VBEMainWindowHide()
    'close VBE window:
    Application.VBE.Window.Visible = False
End Sub

I am attempting to close or hide the “Project – VBA Project” Pane. This pane displays all the Sheets in the workbook, the ThisWorkbook Module, etc.

I tried Application.VBE.Projects.Visible = False, Application.VBE.("Projects - VBA Project") and one or two other combinations using the same terms.

How to&Answers:

You can use Application.VBE.Windows("WindowName").Close to close the relevant VBE Window.

See this

Option Explicit

Sub Sample()
    Dim i As Long
    For i = 1 To Application.VBE.Windows.Count
        Debug.Print Application.VBE.Windows(i).Caption
    Next i
End Sub

This will give you something like this in the Immediate Window

Module1 (Code)
Book1 - Sheet1 (Code)
Project - VBAProject

Properties - Module1
Object Browser



will close the Immediate window. Similarly to answer your question

Application.VBE.Windows("Project - VBAProject").Close 

will close the “Project – VBA Project” pane. And to show it again, you can use

Application.VBE.Windows("Project - VBAProject").Visible = True
