I am working with a VBA userform and several textbox's, setting SetFocus and or TabIndex doesn't leave the box ready to accept input and there is no cursor shown to indicate it is ready to accept input.
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)
I tried looking for everywhere, but i still cant seem to find the solution.. I have an Active X textbox on a worksheet, and I need it's value to show up on a textbox on my userform, that shows up through a command button on that worksheet. I'm fairly new to vba.
Code: 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
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
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.
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 ?
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.
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!!!
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?
When the Go button in text box in the 'VSVA-1 Data' tab is pressed, a new tab is created. I would like the tab to be renamed after the text that is entered into the text box. Is this possible? Here is what I have so far.
VB: Sub RenameTab() 'Renames the worksheet tab ActiveWorkbook.Sheets("VSVA-1 Data").Select tabName = TextBox1 ActiveWorkbook.Sheets("VSVA Data").Select Selection.Name = tabName End Sub
I have a userform in which I wish to use custom buttons for several commands. My userform users aren't going to be very computer skilled and may not know the CTRL+C or CTRL+V command so I am hoping to put in small image buttons representing each command to be able to copy (and paste if necessary) their selection in a TextBox on a MultiPage'd UserForm.
Is there any way of doing this? I've had a look through the forums and seen several examples of how it can be possible to copy and paste but not in the method I'd prefer to have it on this UserForm.
I'm trying to copy text from 7 TextBoxes and a ComboBox in a particular order. The code below will do this but puts the ComboBox text at the bottom when the ComboBox is in position 1 (numerical order 2), is there a way to create an index of these controls by TabIndex then copy the text?
Is there a way without using code to have the text in a text box (excel 2003), copied to another cell or another text box on a different worksheet?
I have information in a text box on 1 worksheet. I would like this information to automatically be copied to another worksheet. On the master sheet, if any of the information gets changed or updated, the copied information should get updated as well.
I need a userform textbox event that fires after I tab or click out of the textbox. Going by the list of options:Beforedragover, BeforeDroporPaste, Change, DblClick, DropButtonClick, Error, Keydown, Keypress, keyup, mousedown, mousemove, mouseup.
I can't figure out which one will do what I want. The change event happens instantaneously which doesn't work. I need to fire off the event when my focus leaves the textbox.
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?
Code: 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.
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."
I am trying to create a user form that has a series of text boxes that will all have a VLOOKUP function in them based off of input from a the first text box. If I can just get the code for the first one, I think I can figure out the rest. We will say that the file that the user form is contained in is 'Agent Administration' and the file that I want the VLOOKUP to pull from is called ' Roster for Auto Population'.
