Is it possible to selectively format text in a textbox on a userform ie. to make some of the text bold, other parts underlined and other parts italic etc. The text which appears in my text box is entered automatically by a piece of code which extracts the contents of certain cells and arranges them in the text box as needed. I would now like to be able to display the text box with the text formatted so that its not just all in plain text.
I have a calendar userform that enters a date into a userform textbox in the format mm/dd/yy.
I am in the UK, so default date format is dd/mm/yyyy but i need it as above - mm/dd/yy
So, when I get a MsgBox to repeat Textbox1.Value (the date from the calendar object, formatted mm/dd/yy) and repeat it in format dddd mmmm dd yyyy, it reads the value not as I want it, mm/dd/yy, but as the usual dd/mm/yyyy - so instead of reading 08/01/12 as Wednesday August 01 2012 it is giving me Sunday January 08 2012 - even though in the cells on the worksheet that are populated from the textbox, the date reads correctly, so 08/01/2012 is indeed 1st August 2012 not January 8th 2012...
So it's the MsgBOx function reading the textbox in the userform wrong, and formatting makes no difference...
Can I fix this without changing my regional settings? Is there a way to set the region in vba then unset when leaving the program? I don't want to have to change regional, and anyway, the program will be used by others who won't know / want to do that.
I don't want the end user to do anything to TextBox2 (I've got it set to Enabled=False). I would like TextBox2 to populate in $$ format based on a formula : TextBox1 % x Range("Sales_Price")
I can get TextBox2 to populate correctly, but I can't get it to convert to $$ format. Everything I've come across uses the 'Exit' or 'AfterUpdate' event - but I don't think I can use these events since the User won't actually be doing anything to TextBox2.
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
A particular textbox in myuserform requires a displayed format of 000.000. I would like the user to enter a no less, and no more, than 6 digits. On tab, the textbox displays that value in the preferred format.
eg. enter 123456, TAB, results in textbox display of 123.456
I have tried ...
[Private Sub freq_AfterUpdate() freq = Format(freq, "000.000") End Sub But this results in 123456.000
while trying to limit the user's input to a userform textbox to no avail. For example one textbox on the form should only be numbers and I therefore want to restrict the user to typing in a two digit code like 02 or 72 (not for calculations). Another textbox I only want to allow the user to input 6 characters in the format letter, four numbers and a letter. If the user inputs the wrong stuff a message box pops up and the focus is reset
I have a textbox in an excel userform and want the display to be formatted. When "9.1" is entered "9.100" shows either before or after going to the next textbox on userform. The code below is not working.
Private Sub UserForm_Initialize() txtWaste = Format(Me.txtWaste, "00.000") End Sub
I have a userfrom with 2 textboxes used for entering dates. would like to either force the user to enter the date as xx/xx/xxxx or have a calendar feature where they can select a date. I checked my 'additional controls' in my toolbox but do not see a calendar option.
I have a userfrom with a text box which is used to receive a telephone number from the user. The 'Event' code that checks the formatting of the telephone number is "tbCustTel_Exit". If my user enters a format other than what is acceptable for a tel number, they get an error message telling them to re-enter.
My problem is they still end up EXITING that text box they made a mistake in? How can I override them exiting the text box if they make a mistake - and keep them in the text box so they can try and re-enter the tel number again?
I having problem to determine the format value of dates that needs to be inserted in a Userform.
I have the following format in my userform for my Textbox:
When I select the calendar in my userform that is set as follows:
And select the first day of the month, it will always add the format as 05/01/2014 but if I select today’s date as example it will add it in the right format: 2014/05/26
I have included a sample to demonstrate the function of the calendar as I have declared it public as d in a module, therefore making the population of my userforms textbox easier to add information on dates.
If you add 2014/05/01 - 2014/05/26 and 2014/05/06 you will see where the system is having problem with the month and dates I guess the system confuses the two?
I want to add variable content to a textbox in a userform. I want to duplicate a Msgbox as closely as possible to allow me to position the box properly, and I would like a procedure to add a prompt to the userform as you would to a Msgbox. That is, I have found a solution using a cell in my spreadsheet, but I would like a fully vba oriented solution. In the message box you can say
MsgBox Prompt:="Put your message here."
For a textbox in a userform, I can link it to a cell (say A1) and then put data into the cell
I have a fixed height userform textbox that i would like to show the last line of. After there is text in the textbox, enable=false. I can see how to align for left, right and centre, but not for bottom.
I don't want to change the height or size of the textbox and just need to display the last line of data.
We can center horizontally with TextAlign (Left, right or center). Can we center text in a textbox on a userform vertically? I am working with multiple fonts, when a user selects a font I attempt to format a textbox as a display to show what is being created (Best WYSIWYG as I can). I have this particular font that is just ugly but is required. My textbox is set for a 12 point font but the displayed characters partially appear below the lower portion of the textbox. Think of cutting off about 1/3 of the bottom of all text in the textbox.
In my textbox it seems like the text could be moved up (some type of top margin?). All other fonts appear to display in the textbox vertically central, so I believe its the particular font selected causing the as displayed anomaly.
I have a user form on which I need to create a textbox every time the user clicks a button. There are too many to create them all in advance and make them visible when needed. The sample attached, from this forum, is good, except, the numbers in the text box just scroll along and I need to see all the text typed into my textboxes. I would like the textboxes to be multiline, wordwrap and have them resize according to the amount of text.
However I have thirty text boxes on the Userform all linked to cells on a sheet. How do I apply this so that I dont have thirty lines of code. It just does not look elegant. I'm doing this because the number on the userform shows more decimal places than the cells format. Cell formated to 3 places Userform shows about 9 mostly .999999 etc
