On the summary page click on 'Enter Sale' and notice that Customer Advisor' text box gets the focus and the cursor is flashing. (Which is what I want). Enter any name and a sale value (say 'A' and '1') and click the 'OK' button But when I tried to enter another sale the OK button still had the focus. So in the VBA Project / Forms / frm_sale / OK Click event - near the bottom I added a set focus before the 'frm_sale.hide' - This removed the focus from the 'OK' box - but the cursor is still not in the text box, and it needs to be clicked in order to enter text. This is clearly something trivial I am missing - but the blinkers are on and I cant spot it
I'm having some trouble setting up my Userform. It's used for someone to insert a password to open up some sheets. I have it working except for 2 problems.
First off it gets started by a sub which has a shortcut key, CTRL + W.
When it opens I would like the TextBox to be ready to be typed on... and I would like the submit button ready for Enter. So when it opens, you just type in the password really quick and press enter without using the mouse at all.
The TextBox starts on the first try, but when I press cancel and then open the UserForm up again, then the cancel command is still selected and I have to select on the textbox.
There is 3 things on this userform... TextBox1, CommandButton1, CommandButton2. All I want is for the TextBox always to show up ready for typing, and the Submit(CommandButton1) to always be ready to press enter.
I have one userform that loads combobox values upon userform Initialize. Though through a second userform changes can be made to anotherworkbook this workbook is saves any changes. when i close the second userform i need to rerun the 1st userform Initialize event to update the combobox's incase changes have been made.
When I run the userform initialize procedure to reset the values in text boxes and the like instead of resetting like it should, now it closes the userform completely and then won't allow me to show it again, what could be the problem?
Private Sub UserForm_Initialize() Me.MultiPage1.Value = 0 TextBox3.Value = ActiveWorkbook. Sheets("Sales Invoice"). Range("G15").Value Dim hWndForm As Long Dim hMenu As Long hWndForm = FindWindow("ThunderDFrame", Me.Caption) 'XL2000 hMenu = GetSystemMenu(hWndForm, 0) DeleteMenu hMenu, SC_CLOSE, 0& End Sub
The Dim stuff down is to gray out the x button, there are also some module level declarations to go with that...
Private Declare Function FindWindow Lib "user32" Alias "FindWindowA" (ByVal lpClassName As String, ByVal lpWindowName As String) As Long Private Declare Function GetSystemMenu Lib "user32" (ByVal hWnd As Long, ByVal bRevert As Long) As Long Private Declare Function DeleteMenu Lib "user32" (ByVal hMenu As Long, ByVal nPosition As Long, ByVal wFlags As Long) As Long Private Const SC_CLOSE As Long = &HF060
the userform shows when the workbook opens and is then hidden when the user has finished entering values, then when the user goes through the process of being asked to print and save, they are then asked if they would like to create a new record, if yes then it shows the userform again, but the userform is still filled with all the stuff previously entered. I tried using the unload me instead of hiding and that wouldn't work at all, didn't give errors just didn't show the userform either, this at least shows the userform, but now when the user goes to clear the information by initializing the userform again, it simply closes the userform and then it can't be shown again either.
This is the link to the ZIP, and here are some instructions for setting it up to work.
The contents of this need to be unzipped into a folder called SyntheticShield that is placed in the C: drive that way all paths begin with C:SyntheticShield and then the other folders or files will be referenced correctly. The template I'm having problems with is the SyntheticShieldInvoiceMaker template, when you open it you'll be prompted whether you want to create a new invoice, number is final blah blah blah, say yes, then it will ask if you are importing from the Quotemaker which you aren't say no, it should then show the userform as it should. Then you can go through that process and by pressing either the create invoice or go to template directly whatever, you can hide the userform. Then you press the command button (red) a userform is brought up asking if you'd like to save without emailing, save with emailing or close controls, as for right now, I'm just getting the save without emailing to work the rest is all the same just a few tidbits of code. So click save without emailing, it should then prompt an are you sure message box, click yes it will do some things, then it will ask if you want to print, click no, then it will ask do you want to create a new invoice, click yes, this should then start the process all over again by calling the workbook_open procedure, however, when you go through everything, and click no to the import from quotemaker part it won't show the userform. And at one point it would, but then I couldn't initialize the userform without it disappearing and not being allowed to be shown...I tried putting a command button on the template to show the userform, but it wouldn't do it either.
Public Sub Timesht() userform1.Show End Sub And this in my UserForm module:
Private Sub UserForm_Initialize() '//Populate ComboBox1 Sheet1.Range("K5", Sheet1.Range("K65536").End(xlUp)).Name = "CODE" userform1.ComboBox1.RowSource = "DATA BASE!CODE" End Sub I have a named range as "CODE" in my DATA BASE!, sheet1.
I keep getting an error: " 380: Could not set the RowSource property. Invalid property value."
when I type in UserForm1 and arrow down. in turns into lowercase letters.
I have two userform combo boxes, the second follows up on the results of the first.
The second Combo Box looks for incomplete fields and provides them in a drop box. If the data the second Combo Box is looking at (This is different data than the first Combo Box is looking at.) is complete it updates the field, if not then it adds it to the drop down list.
My problem is this, if it finds everything updated and nothing is added to the drop-down list, how do I exit? I just want a complete break where all programming ends.
I am in the Initialize subroutine and I have tried Exit Sub and it still brings up the user form.
The initialization code of a userform I'm using has started causing me 'Runtime Error 13, Type Missmatch' and I can't figure out why. Can anyone see a reason why I may be experiencing this,
Private Sub UserForm_Initialize() 'Get Last Entry Dim countnonblank As Integer, myRange As Range Dim SDate As Date, SDateRange As String, EDate As Date Dim SDateString As String, EDateString As String, DirString As String
'count cells with data in them Set myRange = Sheets("textfilemerger").Range("A:A") countnonblank = Application.WorksheetFunction.CountA(myRange) 'decide if data is present or not If countnonblank = 1 Then.............................
I have a user form called frmAddRepresentative. Under the Initialize event I have the following code.
Private Sub UserForm_Initialize()
'This procedure runs when the frmAddRepresentative form 'is initialized. The procedure sets the repInformation 'sheet as the look sheet sends the focus to the combo box 'used to enter the name and updates the combo list
Set WS = calcRepInformation
I am getting the following error: Could not set the List property. Type mismatch. I have the exact same code on other sheets and it works fine.
I am using the following code to validate text entry in Textbox1 of a userform. I want that if the user enters a numeric value than a msgbox should popup and then cursor should get focus on Textbox1. But with this code, it is setting focus on textbox2 and not on textbox1.
Private Sub TextBox1_Exit(ByVal Cancel As MSForms.ReturnBoolean) If IsNumeric(TextBox1.Text) Then MsgBox "Please enter TEXT value only.", vbInformation + vbOKOnly TextBox1.SetFocus End Sub
I have a userform that creates labels and checkboxes for those lables on the initialize event based on an if statement. I would keep getting an error on a line where I try and use the name of one of those created checkboxes of "variable not defined" as if it hasn't been created, but it was.. Here is the code for the creation:
'Option Explicit Private Sub UserForm_Initialize() 'dynamically add the tickers and funds based on if there is any data inputs for them.
'declaring variables Dim lbl As MSForms.Label Dim i As Integer Dim x As Integer Dim newcheckbox As MSForms.CheckBox
'selects the summary page Sheet1.Select
For i = 7 To 65 If Cells(i, 3) "" Then..................
I have a userform that has a multi page on it with 4 pages. I notice that there is no way to have the individual pages be set to a click event- or none that I see anyways. What I am wanting is for a series of events to happen based on what page the user chooses from the four (like a userform initialize type event).
I have SS that I have 3 levels of users using/viewing data and at the moment it does not allow for errors when inputing password & sheet number to access. What I need is that if there is an error in password or sheetnumber ths user gets the choice to re-enter correct data with vbYesNo or similar. The problem I have is with these lines of code not getting the focus back to txtSheet to re-enter correct data (>0 & <13).
Private Sub CommandButton1_Click() Dim shtNo As Integer Dim R 'Response to msgbox Dim rS As String Dim Msg, Style, Title, Help, Ctxt, Response, MyString Msg = "Please enter a number 1-12." ' Define message. Style = vbYesNo ' Define buttons. Title = "Choose Month" ' Define title. rS = Range("Scode").Value 'Staff password Application. ScreenUpdating = False If Not (txtSheet.Value > 0 And txtSheet.Value < 13) Then Response = MsgBox(Msg, Style, Title).....................
I am creating an Add Contact form. There is a checkbox for Individual (if left unticked then contact is a business entity - not an individual).
If Individual = True and If the txtNameFirst control has no value in it Then after the end user tabs away from the txtNameLastRegistered, the form should SetFocus on the txtNameFirst textbox (entry for this field is mandatory only if the contact is an individual - otherwise this field is made invisible)
But it is not working. I tick chkIndividual, I enter a name in txtNameLastRegistered, I tab away, code is called from txtNameLastRegistered_AfterUpdate (which includes the SetFocus code) but the form appears without focus in any of the controls!
I've set a validation within my userform to force the user to enter in a valid employee ID or a general kiosk #. The validation is working, but the setFocus line I have added to place the cursor back in the textbox in the event the value entered was incorrect isn't working. The cursor is moving on to the next textbox making the user have to re-click on the text box in order to correct the invalid entry.
Am I placing my setFocus line in the wrong place of the code? FYI - The second setFocus is working correctly. When the user enters 9999 it directs them to the IT Ticket number text box. Prior to me moving the textbox, the cursor would jump all other text boxes to allow the user to enter in a ticket number within the ticket number box after entering 9999 within the PERNR text box.
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.
I've got a userform for entering data in a workbook with sheets for each month. ie: Jan'06 , Feb'06, etc. I've added a combobox that looks at my list of these sheets and when a certain month is chosen I would like that months sheet to come up behind the userform, so that the data is entered there when the form is completed.
The other option is to not change the sheet focus but to direct the data to the appropriate sheet based on the combo box. (No matter what sheet is currently selected)
On a related note, I have a text box showing the last date entered and I would like to make shure that it is updated based on the sheet selected in the combobox.
I created UserForm with one TextBox and "Close" Button. And it's works like a real-time search with my criteria. He is using AutoFilter to show what he found. And when I'm pressing Close Button the Focus isn't on Application, but on Hidden window (know because when I'm clicking alt+space form's menu shows).
To show window I'm using (running from hot-key):
Private Sub CloseButton_Click() UserForm1.Hide End Sub
I am using a technique to display a modeless userform to display to the user that the cell data validation has failed (or not) after checking cell data entry (with checks coded as required).
I am using this method for a number of reasons - - enables more flexibility and more characters over that of in cell data validation error messages - to reduce repeat of validation data (to reduce file size) as worksheet has large qty of rows with large qty of columns with variation of validation requirements for each column.
But in the event that data is invalid (fails validation), once the modeless userform is displayed, i want the focus to be on the current cell, not the userform, otherwise the user will always have to click the worksheet to to get focus to enable entry to cell of corrected data.
I have an excel program that uses a modeless userform. often times i will open other spreadsheets while the form is active or minimized. if i return to the form and run it without manually bringing focus to the appropriate workbook, i get an error because it references the wrong workbook. is there a way to keep that form tied to that workbook no matter what? also, it is important that this procedure works despite the workbook name changing.
I call a userform (modeless), and then i'm trying to set the focus back on the range that was selected when i showed the userform. you would think i could just define the range and then use rnge.select like this....
set prevrnge = selection
but it doesn't take the focus off the userform....
I have a spread sheet where i want to display help text when cells are activated. I do not want to use comments as i both do not like the red triangle and also have not found a way to controll the position of the text box. When I use the event Worksheet_SelectionChange I can display a custom box but the box "retains focus" and i can not enter the data until i "reclick" on the cell in the sheet. The box then goes away when i select another cell. Is there a way to fix this or a different method entirely. I am using Excel 2007.
A userform to move the curser to a column then activate the Excel App and keep the userform visiable.
The problem is when excution the code step by step (F8) works fine, but when excution the code by F5 the cursor moves to the Range("A65536").End(xlUp) and doesnot then move to the required column.
also this line AppActivate ("Microsoft excel")
does not work , it gives me Invalid proceduers or call argument.
Private Sub ComboBox1_Change()
Range("A65536").End(xlUp).Activate If ComboBox1.ListIndex = 0 Then Cells(ActiveCell.Row, "I").Activate If ComboBox1.ListIndex = 1 Then Cells(ActiveCell.Row, "J").Activate If ComboBox1.ListIndex = 2 Then Cells(ActiveCell.Row, "K").Activate
I have a workbook developed in Excel 2007 (compatibility mode) that contains Userform4. This form can be displayed (or not) depending in the wishes of the user. What I am trying to do is return focus to the worksheet after the UserForm is displayed.
When the worksheet is activated, I have the following .........
I currently have a small userform placed at the bottom right of the screen (with a command button on it) and this opens up on top of excel instances and other applications/windows and it is set so that you can't interact with anything except the userform.
I wanted to minimize the userform and give focus to immediate next window (can be excel or non excel applications) for 10 seconds and then activate/show the userform back again, when the "Button 1" on the userform is clicked.
I tried hiding the userform, but this doesn't give focus to the immediate next window. Below is the code
Private Sub Button_Click() Me.Hide PauseApp (10) Me.Show End Sub
I could only find answers for adding minimize and maximize buttons to userform.
When the button is clicked, it should perform
Step a - Minimize the userform Step b - Give focus to the next immediate window behind the userform Step c - Wait for 10 seconds Step d - Bring back the userform its to state.
