Force User To Select A Listbox Item

If listbox1.Value = Null Then
MsgBox "you must select a serial number"

Exit Sub

End If

Force Display Of Item In ListBox

May 29, 2009

I have a worksheet and for data validation, i do have a dropdown. This is working fine.

I am now trying to create a userform. And I feel for data integrity, I should be using a listbox on the form as well.

I have found examples of different ways to load the list, so I don't think this part will be an issue. But what I cannot find, is if the worksheet row currently has a value (say it is the third item on the list), how do I show THAT on my form?

Example, say we have a list of 10 cities.
San Francisco

My wordsheet has the rows populated with the cutomers favorite city to visit.
For John Doe (row3) in column 5 is the city "San Francisco"

When I use my nav keys, how would I "stuff" San Francicso in to the display and still have it able to select a different city?

Select Listbox Item Without Triggering Change Event

Aug 30, 2013

I have a Multi-Select Active-X Control Listbox and an associated Button. I am trying to create a dynamic Select ALL, Clear All Button. Clear All Function Works, but Select All triggers the Change Event for the Listbox.

figuring out a way to either

1. Disable the Change event until the "Select all" loop is completed or

2. Find a way to write the action for the Button directly, such that the click event is programmed as part of the Change event, and everything is done in one.

Cannot Attach file due to file size, code below:

Option Explicit
Dim i As Long
Dim j As Long

Select Listbox Entry Based On Another Listbox?

Mar 18, 2014

I have 2 userforms. UF1 and UF2. UF2 has a rowsource set to its Listbox. UF1 has a search function that searches the original sheet. Now I want to double click on an entry in UF1's Listbox and select the same entry in UF2's Listbox. I want to then work with that entry in UF2.


I do all of this to circumvent Excels restriction. I can't search in a rowsource Listbox, but any edits done to my new Listbox wouldn't be made to the Excel sheet.

Listbox - Removing Selected Item

Jun 23, 2014

I have a couple of listboxes and use the mouseup event to do stuff with the row that's clicked.

When a new listbox is clicked I'd like to remove the highlighting or selection from the last one.

I thought this would do it

".Selected(x)= true" where x would be that listbox's list index. But no.

Is there another way?

Highlight 1st Listbox Item After Tab To Field

Jul 14, 2009

I have created a form, with a textbox and a listbox, that loads when the workbook opens.

As the listbox is the 2nd field on the form, I'd like for the 1st item in the listbox to be highlighted once the user tabs to this field from the textbox field, in the event that the 1st item is actually the item the user wants to select. Currently, once you tab to the listbox field, the listbox item has a dotted line around it (forgive my not knowing the correct term to use for this; I would guess the item has focus at this point, it's just not selected), but the item is not actually highlighted. If I use the arrow keys to scroll up or down, then the first item can ultimately actually be highlighted.

I've search this message board, but was unable to come up with a solution. I assume I must not have been using the best search terms.

Currently (a part of) the form's code is:

Dim txtbox_EmplName As String
Dim lbox_Div As String

I'm certain this must be simple, but I haven't been able to find a solution. What code would I need to add or change, and where?

Deselect ListBox Item In Code

Aug 18, 2006

I think this should be simple to answer. I have a userform that has multiple listboxes on it. When the user makes a selection in Listbox1 it highlights the item selected then when the user makes a selection in Listbox2 it highlights that next item and the selection in listbox1 remains highlighted. What I want is to deselect the selection in Listbox1 when Listbox2 is selected. I have tried things like below:
