Using the Class

Import the UserForm
In order to use the Lightbox UserForm you will need to import it into Excel. Open your Project or a new Excel Workbook. Open the VBE Editor and do File->Import File, browse and search for the Lightbox.frm File that you unzipped and then load it in. Open the Readme.txt File that you unzipped and add the Code examples in this File into any Code Module - if you do not have a Code Module insert one into your new or existing Project first and then add the Code example from the Readme.txt File. Now you are good to go. Run the Code examples. A simple illustration of using the Code is shown below:
' -¬ Lightbox Example
Public Sub White_Lightbox_EaseOutSine()
   Lightbox.FadeIn False, FitToExcel, easeOutSine
   DummyTask 1200
   Lightbox.FadeOut easeOutSine

End Sub

'-¬ DummyTask, runs a dummy task
Private Sub DummyTask(ByVal TaskLength As Long)
   Dim Start As Date
   Dim Running As Long
   '@Ignore DefaultMemberRequired
   Start = Now()
   For Running = 1 To TaskLength
      '@Ignore DefaultMemberRequired
      Application.StatusBar = "Running a dummy task: " & Running & " Elapsed Time: " & Format$(Now() - Start, "ss")
   Next Running
   Application.StatusBar = Empty
   Running = 0
   Start = 0
End Sub
