Tab Order In Userform
I have several checkbox and adjacent to it there is a textbox. Also I have a command button.
On Form initialize, all checkbox and textbox are hidden, except first check box and textbox.
The first checkbox1 is enabled and textbox1 is empty. On Exit event of textbox1, the checkbox2 and textbox2 gets visible, with checkbox2 enabled.

On exit event of textbox1, the cursor goes to command button on Tab
My requirement:
The cursor should go to textbox2.

Note:- I have Tabindex set to as following:
Textbox1 = 0
Textbox2 = 1
Commandbutton1 = 2

Programmatically Remove A Control From Userform
Suppose I have a userform named myUserForm and a checkbox on it named myCheckBox. How on earth do I remove myCheckBox from myUserForm at run time? I've tried every which way I can think and I always get "error 444". Some things I've tried are:

myUserForm.Controls.Remove "myCheckBox"
myUserForm.Controls.RemoveControls "myCheckBox"

I've put this in a standard module, the ThisWorkbook module, even in the myUserForm code module and each time it's the same error.

Tab Order In Forms
I would have like a chance to be able to remove the apparent potenitial dangerous problem from the thread below and not close it after 10 mins. I'm not on the site permenantly and keep dipping back in eveynow and again. I dont know what the issue is as when I open the file up I dont get any error messages. I have tried this on my machine using Office 2003 and Vista also another PC using Office 2003 and XP


The only error I get is a message saying Disk or Network error, when testing it on the XP Machine this is because doesnt have access to the Database it sends the data to.

Cells Tab Order VBA
The tab order in an Excel spreadsheet is driving me nuts. I could not get it on my own and found some code that seemed to solve my initial problem.
However, I still can not figure out why I can't go backwards. It will ONLY go forward no matter what you do. If you try to select a cell behind or in front, it just tabs to the next cell in the array. Can anyone help before end up sitting in the corner of the nut house crossed-eyed and drooling

Force Tab Order Of Cells
I have input cells on a protected sheet with a tab order array setup. It was originally set up to work when their was a Worksheet Change. Not every cell is going to have data input into it. This is where the problem lies. If a cell is left blank it tabs out of sequence. I changed it to a Worksheet Open Sub but that didn't work.

Tab Order Of Text Boxes
I have been working on an excel sheet with several text boxes that need data manually putting into them. I have set the texts boxes out in the correct order and could tab thru them perfectly in order, but then I saved, closed then reopen the document and now the text boxes do not tab in order. I have tried to rearrange them, delete them and start again but the same problem happens every time and I cannot get the tab order of the text boxes to stay in order

Force Cell Tab Order Between Named Ranges
I have forced the tab order of sheet. Unlike the example with the link, I have used named ranges instead of cell references in the array to order the tab sequence. (the named range are single cells and merged cells)

Just like the author of the link, the sequencing works great but if I choose click on another cell (that is in the pre-determined sequence) it then takes me to the next pre-determined cell int he sequence.

I have tried the code the "shg" has suggested for merged cells to no avail. Maybe it has something to do with the name ranges.

Control Order Of Class Object Events
Split from Determine Order Of Event Procedures

I realise that there's no set order for different types of event, because, as you say, it basically depends on what the user does. But what I'd like to control is what order like events fire in.

So let's say that object_1 handles the aplApp_WorkbookNewSheet event (an application-wide event).

Let's say that object_2 is an object of the same type as object_1, and therefore also handles the aplApp_WorkbookNewSheet event.

The objects are entirely independent; they know nothing about each other. However, I would like to be able to control whether the aplApp_WorkbookNewSheet event is fired first in object_1 or first in object_2 when the user triggers this event by adding a new worksheet somewhere.

Is Is Possible To Control Sheet Tab Names
I have a spreadsheet with sheet numbers that are controlled by the tab name. Is it possible to limit how people name the tab? For example, my sheet numbering must be: 101, 102, etc. Thus the tab would of course be 101, 102, etc.

Macro That Deletes Sheet With Control & Shows UserForm Causes UserForm To Disappear
This is weird - if you delete a sheet that contained a control then

a. showing a modeless userform resluts in a userofrm that goes invisible at subroutine End
b. public variables lose their value

These things do not happen if the sheet did not contain a control. Attached is an example file - put the inputfile.xls in your default file location (or add a path in the code) then open the ProblemDemo.xls and run the main macro to see it fal - isthis another Excelbug I've found?

Multipage Tab On A Userform In VB
I'm having a problem setting the multipage tab on a userform in VB. It's kinda weird because the code was working fine until recently, where it's suddenly stopped working properly! The only thing I can think of is that I changed versions of Excel to v2003 recently.

I want to not let the user change tabs unless the inputs entered have been error checked. My code is:

Private Sub MultiPage1_Change()

If Me.MultiPage1.Value > 1 Then
If Range("inputs!dob") = "" Then
Me.MultiPage1.Value = 1
MsgBox ("Please enter your date of birth before continuing.")
End If
End If
End Sub
The tab itself changes fine (ie. shows the tab 1 header), but the contents of the tab are actually the contents of tab 2!

Right now they all open the userform, but open the first tab.

Cursor Control With Userform
I have created a simpel userform that shows sales total and it is activated [.show function] whenever an entry is made in the order column. All of this works fine.

The only problem I have is that the curser jumps in to the text box and doesn't return to the order column where next entry needs to be made.

How do you move the curser out of the userform, back to the activesheet?
Ideally it should move to the next cell for the user to make entry.

I am attaching my sample file here. It has some odd things that I was just playing around with as learning experience. But the main question is how to control the curser.

Setfocus From Module To Userform Control
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 am trying to implement a simple userform using the RefEdit control.

So I have the RefEdit control and an Ok (which has code attached to it) and a Cancel commandbutton.

For some reason, I can't get the focus on the RefEdit control (i.e. when I activate the form, I have to actually click in the RefEdit box before it gets the cursor). Which property sets the focus in this control?

Right now I have the Ok button Default property set to True.

I have a commandbutton on the spreadsheet that activates the userform.

Enter Key On UserForm To Next Control Not Working
I have a User Form that is used to collect data. CommandButton1 loads the User Form data into the worksheet and CommandButton2 clears all data from the Form in preparation for entering the next record. Immediately after a user first opens the Form, the very first time CommandButton1 is clicked, the Enter Key stops working. At this point data can be typed into any TextBox on the Form, but when the Enter Key is pressed the cursor remains in the TextBox. (The Enter Key will not move the focus to the next Textbox in the Tab Order. Also, if I alter the code to set the focus on a CommandButton as the active control instead of a TextBox, pressing Enter on the active CommandButton does not execute the CommandButton's macro... the same behavior as a TextBox; nothing at all happens when the Enter Key is pressed even though the CommandButton has focus).

At the point when the Enter Key stops functioning, if the user presses 'Alt-Tab' to leave the Form and then immediately uses 'Alt-Tab' to return back into the Form the Enter Key suddenly works again and continues to work correctly from that point on even after CommandButton1 is clicked. Again, the Enter Key stops working ONLY the first time CommandButton1 is run immediately following initially opening the workbook and Alt-Tabing into the Form immediately corrects it. I saw one other post in this forum with this same problem in 2003, but unfortunately it did not get answered.

Collapsible Multi-Select UserForm Control
I would like to add a combobox type control that will allow multiple selections. I know that the combobox in the MS Forms Object Library only allows single selections and that the list box is the way to go to allow multiple selections, but I am trying to keep the form as small as possible. I would like to add a control similar to the one used on pivot charts, where the user clicks the dropdown box and can select multiple items. I'm hoping this control is installed with MS Office and just needs a reference to it, but I am open to installing third party controls as well.

Place Code Behind Userform: Active Control Colored
I have created a user form and I am trying to get the active control colored. I am using the code from Mr Excel's VBA book - starts on page 454, and I have entered all the code, but now when I activate the user form I get an error ....."Compile Error. Invalid attribute in Sub or Function." and when I click OK, it takes me to this line of code.....

Private WithEvents objForm As clsCtlColor

In the book, this is where I am supposed to start entering the code "behind the userform" rather than in the class module. So, I assume this means that this code goes with all the other code for the user form (in VBA project click on form, then view code). Am I wrong? Should I be adding a module? Not sure what I am doing wrong.

Here is the code I have in the class module....

Public Event GetFocus()
Public Event LostFocus(ByVal strCtrl As String)
Private strPreCtr As String

Public Sub CheckActiveCtrl(objForm As MSForms.UserForm).......

If KeyAscii = vbKeyPageDown Then

Evaluate UserForm Control Where Name Is In 1 Cell & Property In Another
In A1, other code inserts the name of a Form control (textBox, comboBox etc), and in B1 it inserts the name of a Property that is always valid for the A1 control. I want to concatenate these two items to produce a formula in C1 that evaluates the current value of the Property on the running form and continues to update with each recalc. It's ok if I have to force a recalc to get the latest values.

The code feeding the items to A1 and B1 and which will be harvesting the Property values from C1 is running in the same Form that holds the controls being referenced.
So if A1= "Label1" and B1 = "BackColor", then in C1 I'd like the same result as if in VBA I said X = Label1.backcolor. I think that what I need is the Evaluate function, but I've read Arron's article on it I just can't seem to make it work here.

Remove UserForm On Close
I have a function (courtesy of Walkanbach) to create a userform, very useful as it means I keep memory down as I can create the UF's as I go and tweak to suit.

I have been trying to get the userform to be removed when the user closes it. The close action in this case is the X button top right as this userform only has the userform itself and a listbox.

When I set the code for the event procedure it doesn't error, but nothing happens. The microsoft help pages seem to suggest that you can't remove a userform through vba, but I find that hard to believe. I've tried variations on the close procedure and all to no avail so far.

Dim xInt As Integer
With TempForm.CodeModule
xInt = .CountOfLines
.InsertLines xInt + 1, "Private Sub TempForm_Terminate()"
.InsertLines xInt + 2, "ThisWorkbook.VBProject.VBComponents.Remove TempForm"

Access Control Properties Of Controls Within UserForm, MultiPage & Frame
I want to access the Properties of a number of controls in a running form, and these controls may or may not be contained in a Frame or a MultiPage.

In particular I want the Top and Left for these controls, which means I have to first find out if the control is contained in a Frame or MultiPage so I can get the reference for Top and Left. I'm ok with doing this for controls inside a Frame, but the MultiPage is eluding me. I get an error when I try to access these controls and it looks like they are actually owned by the individual Pages of the MultiPage.

how do I find out if a given control is contained in a given MultiPage?
