Adding Comments To Textbox And Having Textbox Keep Updating

Apr 3, 2014

I have a form that has three fields (1. Comments (TEXT), 2. Legacy_Comments (TEXT), 3, Comment date (DATE))

Now my users need to keep adding comments to the comment text box, and when they do it automatically adds the date they entered the comment in the Comment date box. Now my problem is that since they keep adding comments to the comment box, I need to keep track of these comments in the Legacy_Comments (Text box).

For example, the First time a user enters a comment into the (1) comment text box it auto populates the date in the comment date box, and then adds the comment and date to the Legacy_Comment box. the end result is (comment,4/3/2014 now lets say a user needs to add a comment to the comments box tomorrow - I want the legacy_Comment box to then read (comment, 4/3/2014; comment2, 4/4/2014, ...., comment(n),date(n)) OR it can be vice-verse, because I just need to keep track of the comments, I am not worried if the new comments are before or after older (yesterdays / the day before yesterdays comments)

How can I write a VBA code that will always add the new comment to the legacy_comment field, without deleting the comments that were entered previously?

If isnull(me.comment.value) Then
Exit Sub
ElseIf me.comment.value = true Then
me.comment_date.value = date
me.legacy_comment.value = me.comment.value & "," & me.comment_date.value & ";"
me.legacy_comment.value = me.legacy_comment.value & "," & me.comment_date.value & ";"

It adds the comment only the first time, but it does not concatenate the string from yesterday to the string to today. I do not care which order the comments are, meaning if I added a comment today it can be before OR after the comment from yesterday.

Adding Text From One Userform Textbox To Another Textbox

Oct 12, 2011

Private Sub cmdSearchButton_Click()
Dim txtbox As String 'stores lookup value
Dim x As Variant 'value for wwid txt box
Dim ForeName As String
Dim SurName As String
Dim wwid As Variant
Dim iPosition As Integer

[Code] .......

Here is my code, it does a vlookup and if the persons name is not found it will split the text entered into forename and surname but when i try and add

frmAdd.txtForename.Text = "&ForeName &"
frmAdd.txtSurname.Text = "&SureName &"

It actually displays &ForeName & in the text box of the next from rather than what ForeName is..

eg. John Smith -> search button -> user not found msg -> user wants to add user -> string is split into forename and surname -> forename = John , surname = Smith -> display this in the second form.

What code should i be using to do this, i thought that &ForeName & would work.

Formatting TextBox And Check Which TextBox Is The Active TextBox In The Loop

May 18, 2006

I am attempting to format some TextBoxes from within a For/Next loop. I need a way to check which TextBox is the active TextBox in the loop. Using i as the variable, I came up with this code snippet: Me.Controls("TB" & i).Text = Format("TB" & i, "mm/dd/yy")

If i = 3, this gives me in TextBox3 (which is called TB3) the text 'TB3' and not the value of what is in TB3. It has got to bo something simple, I just can't see it!!!

TextBox Value Not Updating

Dec 10, 2009

I have a userform that displays data related to a given stock in textboxes and lets me manipulate other data with command buttons. it works fantastically, except the dynamic data on the sheet does not update dynamically in the textboxes.

i have a combo box from which i select a symbol, data is pulled from the sheet and populates the text boxes. that is accomplished with a sub. there are 800 symbols. i mention that because i can't just set the ControlSource to a specific cell. I tried several different ways of referring to the cell, using .Cells and vlookup but i mostly just got errors. then i tried to do it with code (heh) here's a sample:

SecurityName.Value = Cells(r, 5)
ParityBid1.Value = FormatNumber(Cells(r, 12), 2)
ParityAsk1.Value = FormatNumber(Cells(r, 13), 2)
ParityLast1.Value = FormatNumber(Cells(r, 14), 2)
LocalVolume1.Value = FormatNumber(Cells(r, 10), 0)

Again, it pulls the data fine, it just doesn't update. Anyone who can help will receive total consciousness on their deathbed.

Updating Textbox In UserForm

Aug 3, 2009

I am trying to update a Textbox from two Listbox's and several Textbox's as the user enters values (or double clicks the textbox for a value). (DoubleClick code is completed). I have ten textbox's to enter data into (or double click for prior data stored in the registry). Two Listbox's requiring one selection each. The last textbox (textbox11) produces the text as it is being entered from the previous ten, I currently enter the data in a specific order to build my string, which I want to stick to. If the user has entered the wrong data in any of the active textbox's I would like to be able to update the string shown in textbox11 without losing any data from the string.

Hence where my brain cells are popping. My current code (laughing is a pre-requisite). Is in the next two posts due to character length restrictions (no dis intended). Attached is a screen shot of the userform. In the textbox labeled "FCF" all the data you see that is not in any of the textbox's or listbox's is written in from code.

Automatically Updating Numeric Values In Textbox

Jan 15, 2007

In the userform I have several textboxes with default values. There are five text boxes that the user can modify and three whose values I want calculated based on the values of the five modified. This is how I initialized the userform :

Private Sub UserForm_Initialize()
A_BB_and_HBP.Value = Worksheets(5). Cells(2, 35).Value
A_H.Value = Worksheets(5).Cells(2, 36).Value + Worksheets(5).Cells(2, 37).Value + Worksheets(5).Cells(2, 38).Value + Worksheets(5).Cells(2, 39)
A_2b.Value = Worksheets(5).Cells(2, 37).Value
A_3b.Value = Worksheets(5).Cells(2, 38).Value
A_HR.Value = Worksheets(5).Cells(2, 39).Value

Worksheets(5).Cells(2, 41).Value = A_BB_and_HBP.Value
Worksheets(5).Cells(2, 42).Value = A_H.Value
Worksheets(5).Cells(2, 43).Value = A_2b.Value
Worksheets(5).Cells(2, 44).Value = A_3b.Value
Worksheets(5).Cells(2, 45).Value = A_HR.Value
A_AVG.Value = CStr(CSng(A_H.Value) / (130 - CSng(A_BB_and_HBP)))
End Sub

Then I have :....................

When the user changes A_H, A_AVG remains at its default value.

Adding Macro To TextBox In VBA

Jul 19, 2007

I've got a userform which adds Textboxes automatically depending on a certain value. And the amount of Textboxes varies from 1 - 100. I add them with the line:

Set MyControl = UserForm1.Frame1.Controls.Add("forms.textbox.1", strControl, Visible)

Now my question is:
Can I add a macro to each of these textboxes automatically? A macro for the Change event I think it is.

All textboxes would have the same macro.

I kinda hoped it would be one of the following:
MyControl.OnAction = "test"
MyControl.Change = "test"

CammandBar Adding Textbox

Oct 19, 2007

I have the code below to add a text box to a tool bar. My question is can it be a updating text box such as the forms "TextBox1_Change"? I would like it so that as the user changes the text box it runs the Loc_Box sub. Example if "H" is in the text box and the user types "1" then Loc_Box runs, or "H" is deleted it runs, is this possible?

Set TB = CommandBars("Loc Box").Controls. _
With TB
****.OnAction = "Loc_Box"
****.Caption = "Loc Box"
****.Width = 100
End With

I have some code which adds a series of textboxes at runtime depnding on some info on my spreadsheet.

Due to these textboxes being added programmatcally, they curently have no macro's assigned to them.

With choosebefore
.Name = "Before" & i
.Left = 0
.Top = (((i * 18) - 18) - 8) + 6
.Width = 24
.Height = 15.75
.Visible = True
.TextAlign = fmTextAlignRight
.Text = Chr(149)
.SpecialEffect = fmSpecialEffectFlat

Adding Simple Datepicker To Userform Textbox?

Dec 11, 2012

I am creating a userform in excel 2010 (64 bit) that is a 14 question survey. I am trying to get a simple datepicker to appear when user clicks or tabs into a designated textbox which I have named TextBoxDate. I would then like the user to select a date and for that date to appear in the dd/mm/yyyy format in the textbox. Should be easy, right?

I have tried downloading several datepickers, most from the open source thread Non-activex Datepicker Calendar Control on this site. But I am unable to successfully tweak the code to get the datepicker to work how I want. I also am not looking for a datepicker that is complex with max and min date ranges etc.

Transferring Value From Textbox On Multipage 1 To Textbox On Multipage2

Jul 16, 2008

I have a two-page multipage form. I have a textbox on page 1 (txtOccupantLoad), and I want to pass the value from that textbox to another textbox (txtOccLoad_L1) on page 2. The code I've tried so far looks like this:

Private Sub cmbChooseLevel_Change()
If Me.cmbChooseLevel.Value = "Level 1" Then
Me.txtOccLoad_L1.Value = Me.txtOccupantLoad.Value
End If
End Sub

What I'm trying to do is to use the same form for 10 different levels (floors) of a building. Then on page 2, I'll itemize the values for each floor. So the combobox determines which floor the calculations are for; txtOccupantLoad is the total of all incremental occupant loads on that floor; and txtOccLoad_L1 is the first of a series of textboxes on page 2 where the value for Level 1 should go. If the combo box shows "Level 2" then I'll write new code for the txtOccLoad_L2, and so on. I've also tried including "page1." and "page2." after "me."
