Choosing A Textbox For Default Cursor Location

Dec 11, 2005

On my user form, the cursor blinks in the second text box down.

How do I change it to be blinking in the first (top) text box? This is the first box that data will be entered.

Is this an option in the properties box of the textbox?

Get Cursor Location In A List Object Table

May 19, 2014

I know how to get the row number of the cursor in a spreadhseet (Activecell.Row), but how do I get the cursor location in a list object so that I can then insert a new row for the user at that point?

BTW, I am using tables (ListObjects) because when a row is inserted, all of my formulas are automatically inserted.

Change GetOpenFilename Default Location

Oct 29, 2008

When I use the GetOpenFilename() method, it seems to default to the particular users My Documents. Is there a way to force it to default elsewhere like a share drive, or the users desktop?

In the same line of thought, if I have a file named TestFile.xls. and I want to try to open it from the users desktop if they have it, how can I do this, since their desktop location is different than mine?

Excel 2010 :: Default File Location Not Working?

Apr 19, 2013

I'm using Excel 2010. When I go into the Excel Options, to the Save option and try to type in a specific network drive in the Default File Location: box, I click OK and then it doesn't save the changes. I close Excel down all the way and then restart a new Excel session and it keeps going back to "LibrariesDocuments..."

It doesn't seem to be just related to Excel...having the same issue in Word and Access 2010 as well.

Open Windows File Chooser At Default Location

Feb 14, 2012

Is there any way of making the default directory location for application.getopenfilename work properly with shared locations?

Presently I use ChDrive then Chdir but I cant use ChDrive if workbook is opened from a link in email for example. Please see below

I have a VBA routine that asks the user to load an existing file on startup.

I want the window for the file selection to open at the same folder every time. (the folder is on a shared drive)

The workbook to run the code will always be located on this same share at a fixed location.

My present code builds the path to the desired opening folder by collecting the drive letter from the current working directory (which has to be done as everybody maps there shares to different letters here, its not guaranteed to be the same! )

then i ChDrive to this letter.

Then I ChDir to letter plus myKnowndirPath

This works fine, the window always opens at my required folder. But only as long as the user has navigated to the folder containing the spreadsheet and then ran it from there. Because that way a drive letter is available.

However i found that if i sent a link to the workbook or its home folder. And the user opens the link or a windows explorer from that link and then runs file from there.

Then it stops working beacause there is no local drive letter in the working directory path. i.e. working directory shows as

'network \shareddrive
ootafolderanother arget

instead of something like
J:afolderanother arget

Put/Place Cursor Into UserForm TextBox

Jun 5, 2008

To accomplish whats in the title, I tried (and think I used successfully previously) the following

With tbfind
.SelStart = 0
.SelLength = Len(.Value)
.SetFocus
End With

Some details, i have a userform named Findform, a textbox in it named tbFind, and the above code is in the userform initialization event section.

Oh also, I dont get any error, everything runs just fine, its just the cursor is not inside the textbox waiting for typing in it. (but i do think it is the focus, when i press tab it goes to the next one in the tab order)

File Browsing In Macro - How To Change Default Start Location?

Sep 28, 2008

I use an image analysis program ImagePro which can call Excel within it's macro language (which seems to be visual basic). I looked up on this site how the change the drive (ChDrive command). But still when the Excel section (after With oExcel) executes the default file location in the browser is in My Documents on the C: drive.

Prior to this code Excel has been launched by this ImagePro macro, and a file Cumberland Template has been opened from the C: drive. Now I would like to do a Save As, but have Excel start at the I: drive location.

Set Focus Not Redirecting Cursor To Proper Textbox

Jun 18, 2014

I've set a validation within my userform to force the user to enter in a valid employee ID or a general kiosk #. The validation is working, but the setFocus line I have added to place the cursor back in the textbox in the event the value entered was incorrect isn't working. The cursor is moving on to the next textbox making the user have to re-click on the text box in order to correct the invalid entry.

Am I placing my setFocus line in the wrong place of the code? FYI - The second setFocus is working correctly. When the user enters 9999 it directs them to the IT Ticket number text box. Prior to me moving the textbox, the cursor would jump all other text boxes to allow the user to enter in a ticket number within the ticket number box after entering 9999 within the PERNR text box.

Position Flashing Cursor At The End Of String In Textbox

Oct 15, 2013

I have a choice of 9 command buttons on a form that enter a short string of text into a textbox. Each button enters a different string into the textbox. The string is the prefix to a product serial number. Once the user has clicked the button & entered his preferred prefix I would like the cursor to be flashing after the last character ready for the user to manually type in the remainder of the product serial number. I'm guessing (with my limited ability) that I have to create a function to do this & then call the function when the button is clicked ?

Set Focus Of Cursor In TextBox On UserForm Show

May 18, 2007

I'm having some trouble setting up my Userform. It's used for someone to insert a password to open up some sheets. I have it working except for 2 problems.

First off it gets started by a sub which has a shortcut key, CTRL + W.

When it opens I would like the TextBox to be ready to be typed on... and I would like the submit button ready for Enter. So when it opens, you just type in the password really quick and press enter without using the mouse at all.

The TextBox starts on the first try, but when I press cancel and then open the UserForm up again, then the cancel command is still selected and I have to select on the textbox.

There is 3 things on this userform... TextBox1, CommandButton1, CommandButton2. All I want is for the TextBox always to show up ready for typing, and the Submit(CommandButton1) to always be ready to press enter.

Removing Blinking Cursor From Textbox On Splash Screen?

Feb 2, 2014

how to get rid of the blinking cursor in a text box. I made a splash screen, added a text box, increased the font size to maximum, and when I run it there is a maximum sized blinking cursor at the end of the line of text. Just looks bad on the splash screen. Is there a hide cursor command that I can use? Or is there a better way to add text that I (obviously) didn't use?

Edit Textbox Value Even After Assigning Default Value?

Mar 17, 2012

i am trying to achieve this in the form that currently has Record navigation buttons...

I have Form with 3 TextBoxes. The first 2 textboxes are edited by the user, but the 3rd textbox depends (It can be edited or might not be)...

I have added the default value under change event of textbox3 as textbox3.value="Pipes"

Currently the user cannot overwrite this value (Pipes)... I need to somehow overwrite this value if required, else, the same value should be retained after clicking New button...

Remove TextBox Default Text

Jan 29, 2008

Hopefully a really simple query:

I have a userform with numerous Textboxes and comboboxes for user input - however the end users aren't too PC savvy and I'm ending up capturing "Please Enter NameJohn Smith", "Please Enter Job TitleSales Manager" etc. My original Instructions told them to tab their way through the form, meaning each time they reached a TextBox their input would overwrite the ("Please Enter x") string prompting them for input.

Is there any way to replicate this "select all" on click (globally as there are potentially 50 to 100 textboxes and 12 varients of the form)?

Penfold Auto Merged Post;OK so I've made a little progress:

Private Sub UserForm_Click()
TextBox1.SelStart = 0
TextBox1.SelLength = Len(TextBox1.Text)
End Sub

The above selects all the text in a textbox - I think I need to apply this to the textbox "on click" - however that could be achieved? Then it needs to be generalised - ie:

UserForm1.Controls("Textbox" & variant)

Userform - Default Textbox Values Based On Textbox1's Value

Mar 5, 2010

I have a userform with 10 textboxes which will all contain a time in HH:MM format. Could I have the userform to fill the textboxes with a default value once a time has been entered into textbox1. I would like the default value to be the time from the previous textbox plus 30 mins.

eg. So if I enter 14:00 into textbox1 I would like textbox2 to display 14:30, textbox3 to display 15:00.

If this is possible, could I add a Listbox with the options 1 to 10. Then would I be able to only uses the textboxes based on the number selected in the listbox. So if I selected 2 then just Textbox1 and Textbox2 would have values in them. For 8 being selected then Textboxes 1 through to 8 would be filled.

Filling Textbox With Values From Another Textboxes With Default Values

Nov 22, 2012

I have a userform containing 3 textboxes, to calculate derivatives.

User enters two integers in textbox1 and textbox2; and to textbox 3, I need to transfer these values but with a little issue.

For example, user entered 3 to textbox1 and 5 to textbox2. In textbox 3, it needs to show 3x^5.
For example, user entered 7 to textbox1 and 2 to textbox2. In textbox 3, it needs to show 7x^2.

So "x" and "^" are our defaults in textbox3.I tried to transfer the numbers that the user enters to cells A1 and A2, -I don't know if this works- but I don't know how to call them to change the text in the textbox.

Interpolation Given A Variable Table Location & Location Of Data Within

Oct 6, 2009

I am trying to develop a spreadsheet that will calculate a cost based on a matrix. I am attaching a sample of the calculation created so far. The end result is in cell M13 and is highlighted in yellow. I kind of layed the formula out in a few different cells, so hopefully it would be easy to follow.

simplify this process with maybe another formula that I might not be aware of, or maybe show me how to get this done in VB code. I think VB code would be the correct way to go just not sure.

Choosing A Printer

Jun 6, 2007

I want the user to be able to choose a printer but not print at that time.

1. Store the active printer as a variable using application.activeprinter
2. Have a dialog box (the printers available) popup and have them choose one, then store that

3. I know how to do the rest, but I will have the word document print out with the selected printer, then use the application.activeprinter reset to the original one
