CommandBar.Reset method (Office)

Resets a built-in command bar to its default configuration.


The use of CommandBars in some Microsoft Office applications has been superseded by the new ribbon component of the Microsoft Office Fluent user interface. For more information, see Overview of the Office Fluent ribbon.



expression A variable that represents a CommandBar object.


Resetting a built-in control restores the actions originally intended for the control and resets each of the control's properties back to its original state. Resetting a built-in command bar removes custom controls and restores built-in controls.


This example uses the value of User to adjust the command bars according to the user level. If User is "Level 1," the command bar named Custom is displayed. If User is any other value, the built-in Visual Basic command bar is reset to its default state and the command bar named Custom is disabled.

Set myBar = CommandBars("Custom") 
If user = "Level 1" Then 
    myBar.Visible =  True 
    CommandBars("Visual Basic").Reset 
    myBar.Enabled = False  
End If
