How to add a feature to my macro button

Office 2003

You guys know how the Show/Hide button works, right. When you click it the Paragraph mark displays and the button remains highlighted. Then when you click it again the Paragraph mark goes away and the button is no longer highlighted.

I want to know what VBA code I can use to give that same kind of functionality to macro buttons that I create.

Macro recording.

Start macro recording, do what you want to do, end macro recording, and edit the macro to view how Word does it. Then do it the same way.

I already know that. I'll restate my question

I want to be able to toggle to button that the macro is assigned to. I mean if I click it the the button will stay highlighed much like the show/hide paragraph button. And when i and done I want to be able to click the same button to undo what I use it to do in the first place ( much like the Show/Hide button can toggle the paragraph button on and off).

At present I have to use two buttons(i placed them next to each other though) to accomplish my task. One button to DO and the other to UNDO.

I want one button alone. Another analogy would be to liken its functionality to that of a check box. check to enable, uncheck to disable, which is how the show/hide button works by the way.

thanks though.

That's easy, but I'll share the psuedocode for it and you can fix it...

begin macro_stan

if (doc.showall=True) then doc.showall=False else doc.showall=True

end macro_stan

You get the idea.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
