Selectively Format Text In A Userform Textbox

Apr 26, 2008

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.

DATE Format In Userform Textbox Is Just Text?

Aug 3, 2012

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.

Oct 20, 2008

I am creating a userform in vba with textboxes. Input (from user) into the textbox is copied to a worksheet in the workbook.

I one text box users will need to type numbers and in another they will need to type letters.

Can the textbox be formatted so it will only allow a number?

VBA - UserForm Textbox $ Format

Apr 25, 2012

I've got a UserForm with 2 textboxes.

TextBox1 requires the user to enter a %.

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.

Adding Text From One Userform Textbox To Another Textbox

Oct 12, 2011

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

[Code] .......

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

frmAdd.txtForename.Text = "&ForeName &"
frmAdd.txtSurname.Text = "&SureName &"

It actually displays &ForeName & in the text box of the next from rather than what ForeName is..

eg. John Smith -> search button -> user not found msg -> user wants to add user -> string is split into forename and surname -> forename = John , surname = Smith -> display this in the second form.

What code should i be using to do this, i thought that &ForeName & would work.

Validating The Format Of A Userform Textbox

May 29, 2006

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

UserForm - Format Textbox For Percentage Vs Decimal?

Dec 20, 2012

I have the following code

Private Sub ComboBox1_Change()
TextBox1.Text = Range("P" & UserForm1.ComboBox1.ListIndex + 3).Value
TextBox2.Text = Range("N" & UserForm1.ComboBox1.ListIndex + 3).Value[code].....

In TextBox3, the user will input a percentage as a whole number, IE: 5 for 5%, but when the update is made, it is writing the "5" as 500% and is writing 50 as 5000%.

If there is already a percent in the cell it calls up IE: 50%, it shows up in TextBox3 as .5%

UserForm - Keep User In Textbox If They Made Format Input Error

Oct 27, 2012

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?

Excel 2007 :: UserForm Textbox Date Format (yyyy/mm/dd) Error

May 26, 2014

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:

[Code] ......

When I select the calendar in my userform that is set as follows:

[Code] .......

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 need the format as follows: yyyy/mm/dd

Add Text To UserForm TextBox

May 14, 2008

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

Range("A1").Value = "Put your message here."

and it shows up in the text box when I do a

(Userform) Textbox, Center Text Vertically?

Jan 6, 2010

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 would like the textboxes to be multiline, wordwrap and have them resize according to the amount of text.

Excel 2007 :: Find And Format Text Within Chart Textbox Object?

Nov 15, 2012

I have a text box within a chart tab which is populated with text values from a worksheet within the workbook. That part works fine however i want to be able to achieve the following example:

Current Text: Component Name - Notes

if there are notes against the component name i want the name to remain in black and the notes to change to blue

Aim: Component Name - Notes

If there arn't any notes then for the component name and the "-" to change to a light shade of grey

Aim: Component Name -

There are 26 components, each on their own lines in the textbox so im thinking either a loop where the cell reference is variable eg. ("CY" & i) or using the .find with a variable.

My code so far is:

Sub Chart_Notes_NTCA()
Dim i As Long, j As Long, Counted As Long, Total As Long
Dim Ans As String, Notes As String
Dim Cht As Chart

Userform Text Box Number Format

May 29, 2007

The problem is even though the worksheet cell is formated to 3 places the text box in the Userform shows many more than this. I have used the Control Source set to read the cell value.

The answer I've seen 'txtValue = Format(Value, "000.00")' which seems very neat and tidy but I'm not sure how to use it or where to place it.
