Is there a way to fix a private sub to catch keydown effect of various combos and textboxes of my userform?
Instead of typing the same thing to each and every control's keydown event just call a sub. Code goes like:
Select Case KeyCode Case 112 ShellExecute 0, "open", "hh.exe", ThisWorkbook.Path & "1.chm", "", 1 Case 113 If MsgBox("Backup now", vbQuestion + vbYesNo) = vbYes Then BackUp Case 114 Col = 3 SearchD Case 115 showexcel Case 116 readonly e.c.t.
Instead of that, if i place code in a private sub test() just call test in keydown event
I am using a Textbox1_Exit event that (if certain values are true) sets the focus to different Textbox. However, when I invoke the Textbox3.SetFocus, it redoes all the code in the Textbox1_Exit event since it's technically leaving now.
How do I stop this from happening and ensure that the Exit event happens once? OR How do I properly SetFocus inside an Exit event?
I've got a small - almost "cosmetic" problem. I have a listBox on a userForm and I'm checking for a keystroke combination to see if the user wants to edit related data. That's working fine. However, when I return to the userForm, it beeps at me. Impertinent! I think it's because Excel doesn't know what to do with the keyStroke that I used - Alt U. I've attached code. I think that I just have to set the keycode to something that will be ignored by Excel.
creating macro dynamiccally on keypress and execute it
i have 3 excel sheet sheet1, sheet2, MasterSheet
MasterSheet conatins the following
COLUMN A COLUMN B COLUMN C
Colorcode FLAG SKEYS
RGB(121,223,214) A Ctrl+a
RGB(125,228,114) B Ctrl+b
I have 3 columns column 1 contains colorcode in RGB format column 2 Contains FLAG and column 3 contains SHORTCUT KEYS
i have a macro in sheet1 & sheet2 for coloring the backgrouf color of the selected rows in sheet1 or sheet2
Code: Sub Macro_color() With Selection.Interior .Pattern = xlSolid .PatternColorIndex = xlAutomatic .Color = RGB(234, 241, 221) .PatternTintAndShade = 0 End With
what i need is when th user presses say Ctrl+c , RGB(233,129,220) from the MasterSheet needs to be copied in the macro as .Color = RGB(233,129,220) instead of RGB(234, 241, 221) and the selected row in sheet1 shld be colored. how can it be done
I have a Userform whose purpose it is to capture payment information, in particular Creditcard information. To this end it has (amongst other elements) 2 textboxes - textboxCardNr1 and TextboxCardnr2.
the User enters the cardnr in Textboxcardnr1 as, e.g. 4321098765432109. Through the code below I transform this into the more readable number 4321-0987-6543-2109. I capture the keypress instance to only allow numbers to be entered in this field and to simultaniously update TextboxCardNr2 with the keystrokes.
On exiting TextboxCardNr1 the content of TextboxCardNr2 is copied to the clipboard to be available for pasting on a secure website in the approriate field.
My problem is, that when the user makes a mistake and changes the number in TextboxCardNr1, those changes are not automatically mirrored in TextboxCardNr2.
I want the easy to read form of the card - with the dashes, to be saved. The website the user is pasting the content of TextboxCardnr2 to does not accept the number with dashes.
Private Sub TextBoxCardNr1_KeyPress(ByVal KeyAscii As MSForms.ReturnInteger) Dim taste As String Dim wert As String
KeyAscii = 0 If taste = "0" Or taste = "1" Or taste = "2" Or taste = "3" Or taste = "4" Or taste = "5" Or taste = "6" Or taste = "7" Or taste = "8" Or taste = "9" Then If Not Me.TextBoxCardNr2.Text Like "################" Then Me.TextBoxCardNr2.Text = Me.TextBoxCardNr2.Text & taste............................
I have the below to check for a numeric entry and when it's not, it deletes the entry, shows a Splash Form for a few seconds telling the user to enter Numeric, and then unloads.
The problem is, on the SetFocus part. I thought that it should put the cursor back into TextBox2 for another entry. It doesn't, in fact the cursor is nowhere to be seen. I have to grab the mouse and click in the TB2 to reenter a number.
Private Sub TextBox2_Change() '//Check for numeric entry If Not IsNumeric(TextBox2) Then Me.TextBox2 = "" '//Show SplashForm if not numeric SplashForm.Show Me.TextBox2.SetFocus End If
Excel 2003. User form coding an If statement the "Else" FieldName.Setfocus. The User form has a MultiPage object in addition to the above (setfocus) in a particular field (NOT on the MultiPage object) I want it open to Page2 instead of what ever page it was last closed on. I tried this: MultiPage1.Page2.Enabled
I have been trying to setfocus to any other object on my userform with absolutely no luck at all?
In the code below I open a dialog box to import a text file (with CommandButton1), if no file is selected the user is prompted, this works fine. However it leaves focus to the textbox and the user would have to click on some other object and re-enter the textbox to open the dialog box again.
I'm having some problems with SetFocus on a user form that I am using. Code is Below.
Dim Answer As Variant With cboAccount If .Value "" And .ListIndex = -1 Then Answer = MsgBox(cboAccount.Value & " is not a registered account, would you like to add it?", vbYesNo) If Answer = vbYes Then Load frmNewAccount frmNewAccount.txtAccountName.Value = frmEnterTransaction.cboAccount.Value frmNewAccount.Show If Answer = vbNo Then cboAccount.SetFocus End If End If End If End With End Sub
basically the code asks if the if the answer placed in a cboAccount (combo box) is valid against the list designated to that combo box,
If the entry is not valid a message box appears asking if they would like to add the entry to the valid list if they do not want to do this they can click no and in which case I wan't the focus to be set back to the combo box however currently the setfocus command above does not does not work and the focus is set to the next text box.
I have been working for 8-1/2 hours to get the focus to move to a specified control on my user form if criteria are met in two other controls on the same user form. It's not responding as I expect. I think I know what is happening; I just don't know why.
Situation: I have a user form with the following relevant fields in this tab order - LMonthDay, tbMonthDay, SBMonthDay, LYear, tbYear, SBYear, LTime, and tbTime. I used the designations L, tb, and SB in my control names to represent label, text box, and spin button respectively.
Problem: Once the SBMonthDay control has the focus, if I press TAB without changing the control's value, it does not execute the Exit event statement the way I anticipated. I want the focus to move to the tbTime control when the tbMonthDay & tbYear controls are already properly populated. (They will already be populated for 99% of the entries in this case.)
Private Sub SBMonthDay_Exit(ByVal Cancel As MSForms.ReturnBoolean) Debug.Print "SBMonthDay_Exit Begin" If ISLIKE(tbMonthDay.text, "####") _ And ISLIKE(tbYear.text, "####") Then tbTime.SetFocus Else: tbYear.SetFocus End If Debug.Print "SBMonthDay_Exit End" End Sub ...........................................
I have a userform with a multipage consisting of 4 tabs.
Each one has several combobox's and 1 commandbutton.
As you move through the form the commandbutton moves the data to my worksheet then moves you to the next page. When it reaches the last page it will return you to the first page then unload the form which is great.
The problem I am having is the cursor is not in any of the boxes on the first page. If I click on one of the other tabs then return to first page the first combobox has the focus. All the tab orders are correct. Can anyone point me in the right direction.
Private Sub cmdNext3_Click() ActiveWorkbook.Sheets("CarDetails").Activate Range("A1").Select Do If IsEmpty(ActiveCell) = False Then ActiveCell.Offset(1, 0).Select End If
I have a project with many textboxes on different forms. On some of the textbox_exits on some of the forms, I call a standard module that checks what the user has input. If the user needs to change the input, a msgbox appears to inform the user the info needs to be changed.
I have tried to use ControlSource, Name etc., But I cannot seem to setfocus back onto which ever textbox the input needs to be changed. I think it has something to do wih the _exit event, but not sure.
I have two userforms. When the user chooses the choice "Other" in the userform frmTradeSickOther, another userform called frmOther will be called. At this point, the user will enter some required comments in a textbox (called txtOther) and click the "Add Comment" button. If the user does not enter anything, a prompt will inform the user to type something in the textbox.
My problems: Once the user clicks okay to the prompt, frmOther is called back. When it's called back, I want the cursor to blink in the textbox. Eventhough I have SetFocus on the textbox, it does not work. I don't know why.How do I prevent the user from just hitting enter (i.e., accepting blank lines as comments) and bypassing the commenting part. The code below accounts for hitting enter once (i.e., one blank line), but not multiple times. How do I do this?
Here is what I have when the user clicks on the "Other" choice in frmTradeSickOther:
Code: Private Sub optOther_Click() Unload Me frmOther.Show frmOther.txtOther.SetFocus 'This gets the cursor to blink in textOther when frmOther is called. End Sub
Here is what I have when the user clicks the "Add Comment" button on frmOther:
Code: Private Sub btnAddComment_Click() On Error Resume Next txtOther.Value = Trim(txtOther.Value) 'This is to make sure spaces aren't accepted as a comment. If Me.txtOther = vbNullString Then Me.Hide MsgBox "Please enter the necessary information.", vbInformation, "Required Field" Me.Show Me.txtOther.SetFocus 'Here is where I set focus on txtOther. Exit Sub End If
'Everything below is to add comments automatically to each cell when a value is changed.
Application.CommandBars("Cell").Controls("Delete Comment").Enabled = True If Not ActiveCell.Comment Is Nothing Then Application.CommandBars("Cell").Controls("Edit Comment").Enabled = True Range(curCell).ClearComments
I've got a user form with 12 textbox, one for each month a total textbox number 13 and a 14th text box (TB28) to enter $'s in.
AfterUpdate in each textbox 1-12 posts its value to a worksheet all values are summed in a =sum range which in turn populates textbox 13. When TB13.text = 100.00 it sucessfully calls a number of routines but what I can't get it to do is set focus on TB28.
Private Sub TextBox13_Change() If TextBox13.Text = "100.00" Then With FormPhasedAmt.TextBox28 .SelStart = 0 .SelLength = Len(TextBox28.Text) .SetFocus End With End If End Sub
It returns a Run time error Unexpected call to method or property access highlighting .SetFocus. The rest of the code works OK. Is it because other textbox on the same user form have text highlighted because of the tab order?
In Excel 2000 there seems to be a problem with setting the focus in a UserForm TextBox if the SetFocus method is applied in the same submodule as the UserForm.Show method. Microsoft's circumvention for this is to put the SetFocus command in the form's Activate event submodule.
This seems to work OK except when the TextBox you are applying the SetFocus to is the first control inside a frame. It works if the TextBox is not the first control, and it can be circumvented by first setting the focus on a subsequent control then switching the focus to the intended control.
However, the circumvention is not that useful if there is only one TextBox control in a frame or, as in my current project, if you try to create a generic piece of code to validate controls from multiple forms and set the focus from within the generic code.
Does anyone know of a way over overcoming this problem and being able to directly set the focus to the first TextBox inside a frame?
I've got a userform with multiple pages, and in my userform initialize sub I set the focus to "combobox1" on "page1". When a user is on page2 of the form and clicks my "ClearData" button, which calls the initialize event, I get a run time error 2110 - "Can't move focus... etc" I would like users to have the ability to clear the form and start over no matter what page they are on.
Is there any way to "Inscribe" a cell? I would like to run a macro on Enter keypress, that would execute different code depending on that "inscription" that would be invisible to user. I could use some properties of . Validation property like this:
Private Sub EnterPressed 'following code to ensure proper functioning of Enter in any other Worksheet If ActiveSheet <> mySheet 'MySheet is global Variable then ActiveCell.Offset(1,0).Select exit Sub End If 'now the real code If ActiveCell.Validation.InputMessage = "1" Then ActiveCell.Offset(0,1).Select Else 'something else End If End Sub
The problem is, I use Data Validation and Conditional Formatting, so can't use any of these properties.
Is there a way to write a Worksheet_SelectionChange (ByVal Target As Range) event in module after creating a sheet in VBA? I constantly delete a sheet, then repopulate it with a new one that is empty, but I need to add some code that happens if they should change a particular cell. It worked when I ran it on a worksheet without refreshing, but as soon as I cleared and repopulated the sheet, it was gone. Is there a way to preserve this?
Working in Excel 2003. I have a VBA code that, if a particular option is chosen from a drop down box, then a message box appears. What I'd like to do is alter this code so that if cell J5 has "Text 1", "Text 2", or "Text 3" then the message box does not appear. Here's my
I've created a macro with a custom dialog box, but I don't know how to make the transition from when I make the dialog box pop up, the user enters the information, then they click "Continue" or "Cancel" or whatever it may be, how to do I make it happen from there out?
Do I make the command buttons a boolean and if they click it's true? How do I make it work?
I have a user input box (VBA) with two columns of data entry. The leftmost column has text boxes labeled color1, color2, color3, etc.. The rightmost column has text boxes labeled tag1, tag2, tag3, etc..
I have the TAB sequence set to go from color1 to tag1, color2 to tag2, color3to tag3, etc..
A user can inadvertently tab over the color1 (or color2, etc. columns) into the tag1 (or tag 2, etc. columns) column without entering data in the color column.
Is there coding to allow a TAB key entry to be a Change Event such that, if a user TABS out of color1 without entering data, a MsgBox could signal that they must enter data in the color1 field before they can continue?
Alternately, can you suggest a different approach? The goal is to require an entry in the leftmost column (color1) before they can proceed to the tag1 field. Of course, they are given a "Cancel" option.
