Set Focus To TextBox On UserForm
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

Set Focus To A Textbox When Userform Opens
I'm creating a userform for editing membership records of a small organisation. So I want the focus to default to textbox tboxFind which is used for searching the data.
I've put tboxFind first in the tab order, and in subroutine Userform_Initialize, the last line is tboxFind.SetFocus
Using Excel2000 on Windows Vista, it works OK.
Opening the same workbook in Excel2000 on WinXP, no textbox has the focus when the form opens, but once the user has started to use the form, the focus defaults back to tboxFind, as it should.
So why is the focus not where it should be when the form opens in WinXP?
Set Focus To TextBox On UserForm Initialize
I am trying to SetFocus on a single textbox in a simple form. I am not sure if I am doing it right.

Kind regards, Mentor Auto Merged Post Until 24 Hrs Passes;Hi: I answered my own query - just commented out the setfocus instruction and it defaults to the first, and only, textbox by default
Set Focus Of Cursor In TextBox On UserForm Show
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.
Textbox Set Focus
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
Focus To Return To Textbox
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).....................
Set Focus To Application After Hiding UserForm
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()
Change Sheet Focus From 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.
To Set Focus To The RefEdit Control In Userform
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.
Return Focus To Sheet While Still Displaying A 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.
Modeless Userform :: Set The Focus Back On The Range
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....

Focus Activecell After Display Of Modeless Userform
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.
Keep UserForm Linked To Particular Workbook Even If Focus Is Lost
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.

Userform Textbox Event That Fires After I Exit The Textbox
I need a userform textbox event that fires after I tab or click out of the textbox. Going by the list of options:Beforedragover, BeforeDroporPaste, Change, DblClick, DropButtonClick, Error, Keydown, Keypress, keyup, mousedown, mousemove, mouseup.
I can't figure out which one will do what I want. The change event happens instantaneously which doesn't work. I need to fire off the event when my focus leaves the textbox.
Force Focus Back: Pop Up A Userform To Provide Instructions And Collect Some Additional Data From The User
I'm working on a spreadhseet which has several macros that can take up to 5 minutes to run. When the macro(s) complete, I pop up a userform to provide instructions and collect some additional data from the user.
The "problem" is that when the user moves to another application to do other work, the user form remains hidden behind the active app. I've added some text to the status bar to let the users know the processing is done, but they would like something more obvious - so, is there any way I can force focus back to Excel?
Copy From Textbox To TextBox In Another Userform
I am trying to copy data from a Textbox in a Userform to a Textbox in another Userform. Is it possible?
In Userform1 I have a button from which I can open Userform2 keeping the Userform1 opened. When closing Userform2 I want to copy the data from TextBox2 in Userform2 to TextBox1 in Userform1.
I was trying to guess the code... but it is not working...:

Userform Textbox Formatting
Could anyone offer advice on how I would go about accomplishing this task? I'm trying to format two textbox fields on my userform that when the user inputs data into it, it would automatically show the "symbols, dashes and/or spaces accordingling".
The first textbox field (TextBox9) I need to end up looking like this, with the numbers and/or letters changing by user input.
example: (MI) A000-000-000-000
The next textbox Field (TextBox10) I need to end up with this type of result:
example: (MI ID) A000-000-000-0
I was trying something like this but I'm not familiar enough with the formatting symbols to accomplish this task.
Userform Textbox Code
I have a userform and I want a textbox that counts cells J7,M7,P7,S7,V7. Does anyone know how to write this code and where to put it. All I want is the textbox to show how many cells of these five have data in them and I want it to update automatically.
UserForm TextBox Sum Formula
I have pieced together and edited a userform that has text boxes and drop downs to collect data and send it to a worksheet, and it's working very well so far...
What I would like to do is - on the userform are two textboxes that will be filled out by the user, right below them is a textbox where I would like to immediately show the difference between the other two.
ie: txtbox1 = 200
txtbox2 = 125
txtbox3 = 75
I would like txtbox3 to show the difference right away and not allow the user to edit the box.
I've just gotten into VBA and have tried a few ways to do this but just don't understand well enough yet.
Current Userform TextBox
After seaching on this and other forums I have not been able to get an answer to this question. Also I know there are a lot of posts out there that sound like this, but none are the same.
My spreadsheet has multiple userforms, which has multiple textboxes. The textboxes are for dates. I have it set so when you double click in the textbox that it calls a calendar function.
Here is the problem.... After you click ok on the calendar form I want the date to go into the textbox that the calendar form was called from. The only way for me to get this to work is to create a seperate calendar form for each textbox that I call the calendar form from.
I have textbox1 and commandbutton3 in userform.
Commandbutton3 has the below
Private Sub CommandButton3_Click()
x = Application.GetOpenFilename(FileFilter:="Excel Files (*.xls), *.xls", Title:="Choose File", MultiSelect:=False)
MsgBox "You selected " & x
1. I would like that commandbutton3 to be only visible if the user selects textbox1
2. When user clicks on commandbutton3 and selects the file, I would like x to populate textbox1.
Userform Textbox Formatting ..
I'm a bit stuck with one of my userforms. I have a username textbox on my workbook logon screen. I have put a max length on the textbox to 7 characters. I have also added a bit of code which stops the user from entering anything less than 7 characters (once the commandbutton is clicked, a msgbox comes up), and the textbox will show text in upper case.
What I would like is a way to "format" the textbox. All of the usernames will be in the following format: BBAAA11. The first 2 characters will always be "BB". The 3rd, 4th and 5th characters will be any combination of letters (for example... "CAM", "EAL", "BEF"). Finally the last 2 characters will always be any combination of 2 digits (for example... "76" "24", "00").
If someone could provide me with some code which will not allow the textbox to type anything other than the specified format, or for a msgbox to appear once the commandbutton has been clicked to say that the incorrect format has been entered, I will be most grateful.
Format Userform Textbox
I am using the following code to insert a $ for my txtbox. how can I add to it so that it will also show commas. For example if I type 35000, I want it to show $35,000.

If TextBox1.Text = "" Then TextBox1.Text = "$"
Format A TextBox On A Userform
I am creating a userform in vba with textboxes. Input (from user) into the textbox is copied to a worksheet in the workbook.

Can the textbox be formatted so it will only allow a number?
Can the text box be formatted to only allow text?
Userform Repaint - TEXTBOX Only
I have Userform1 that has Commandbutton1, Textbox1 and Textbox2.
Under Commandbutton1_Click is a long code that basically opens a file, manipulate data and loops, etc. Part of this code is to update the value of Textbox2.Text
Now because the code in Commandbutton1 involves opening files and etc, I decided to set set APPLICATION.SCREENUPDATNIG = FALSE.
Problem with this is that it seems the Textbox2.Text.
I learned that if I add Userform1.Repaint. after the line where Textbox2 gets a new value, that the whole userform gets refreshed.
However it would really be optimal if only Textbox2 gets repainted, and not all the objects in the userform1.
Something to the tune of TEXTBOX2.REPAINT
Userform Textbox To Populate With
Userform1 is a basic search and find using the text the user enters in a text box, followed by 'ok' commandbutton.
If a matching cell is found in the worksheet, the row is selected and the second userform asks for text via textbox2. This text will be placed in the end column of that row (column L) that was found to have the text input in Userform 1.
What's important is that if on that row some text already exists in column L, that this appears in textbox2 allowing the user to modify it.
I'm ok with the search and find :
Updating Textbox In UserForm
I am trying to update a Textbox from two Listbox's and several Textbox's as the user enters values (or double clicks the textbox for a value). (DoubleClick code is completed). I have ten textbox's to enter data into (or double click for prior data stored in the registry). Two Listbox's requiring one selection each. The last textbox (textbox11) produces the text as it is being entered from the previous ten, I currently enter the data in a specific order to build my string, which I want to stick to. If the user has entered the wrong data in any of the active textbox's I would like to be able to update the string shown in textbox11 without losing any data from the string.
Hence where my brain cells are popping. My current code (laughing is a pre-requisite). Is in the next two posts due to character length restrictions (no dis intended). Attached is a screen shot of the userform. In the textbox labeled "FCF" all the data you see that is not in any of the textbox's or listbox's is written in from code.
Pre Select A Textbox In A Userform
When my userform is displayed, I would like to have the input field preselected. It is the same as using the Shift-Home key.

UserForm1.TextBox1.Select ' NOT correct
The last line does not work, but it was my stab at the problem
Macro For Textbox In Userform
I have an userform say frmNew. In the form, I have three textboxes: txtCost, txtRate, txtSale.
The following two boxes are filled by a user:
txtCost contain the Cost of an item (numbers)
txtRate contain the % Rate (3 character), i.e. the txtRate can contain only A,B,C,D,E,F,G,H,I and J. The corresponding value is 1,2,....9,0 respsctively.
If a user enters any numbners or characters other than A,B,..J, a msgbox should popup with a error message.
The value for txtSale is generated by the Macro i.e. txtSale = (txtCost + (txtCost * txtRate)).
Fractions In UserForm TextBox
I know I can use fractions in Excel, eg. 1/4 will yield .25 when formatted for number.
I wanted to allow users to enter fractions in a userform, but alas, it seems to come out as text. So I gave up on the idea, and then it hit me that this forum might be able to provide the answer. If so, maybe I'll include it before I finish my project.
In a nutshell, I want to have users put in fractions, decimals or whole numbers in the userform so I can use it in formulas. (I haven't given any thought to handling combinations like 1 1/2. Later for that). Is there any way for the Excel to know that the textbox on the userform is a number?
Userform Textbox Not Showing
I have a macro with the following code at the start:
returnvalue = MsgBox("Are you ready to update your Records? Did you enter all the bowler scores? Did you change the bowler's Status?" & Chr(13) & "If you answered Yes to all questions, then click YES, otherwise, Click NO & make your corrections.", 36)
If returnvalue = 6 Then

Force Value In Userform Textbox
I have a UserForm that requires a value in TextBox10. I load a "1" into it at start up. If the user tries to delete the value in TextBox10 and exit, leaving either "" or 0 in the TextBox, it will cause a great many problems. I need someway to keep the focus in TextBox10.
I tried to find something using the search engine but I could not find anything searching with this subject.
Here is the code from my first attempt:
Private Sub TextBox10_Exit(ByVal Cancel As MSForms.ReturnBoolean)
If TextBox10.Value = 0 Or TextBox10.Value = vbNullString Then
It doesn't seem to do anything. When I delete whatever is in the Textbox and hit enter, it should just stay in TextBox10 but instead it goes to the next tab location.
Add Text To UserForm TextBox
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
Reference UserForm Textbox
I'm building a UserForm that has several TextBoxes to gather basic project information to fill in the header of a report. The first TextBox is the Job #... I'm trying to implement code for an "Auto Fill" button (based on working VBA code from another workbook) that will fill the other TextBoxes in the UserForm...
The working VBA code from the other workbook does "Auto Fill" for Worksheet Ranges, not UserForm TextBoxes. How should I reference the UserForm Textboxes in the code to specify their value?
If TextBox("InptJobNum").Text = "" Then
MsgBox "Please Insert Job Number"
Jnum = TextBox("InptJobNum") 'Specify Job Number
Workbooks("Job Log.xls").Sheets("Job Log").Activate
If WorksheetFunction. CountIf(Range("A2:A1000"), Jnum) = 0 Then
MsgBox "Invalid Job Number, or cannot be located... Please correct and try again"
Text Alignment In Userform Textbox
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.
Calendar To Populate Textbox In Userform
I've created a userform to populate rows in a worksheet. The userform gets details of flights with inbound and outbound dates. I'd like a calendar to popup so the user can just select a date with the click of the mouse which then resides in the textbox until sent to the sheet. I know how to get the calendar to pop up when entering directly into the sheet but I don't want the user to have to touch the sheet unless making amendments.
Create Hyperlink In Userform Textbox
sometimes i'll have some text i want to show in a userform textbox. let's say the text happens to be in a sheet named story, and it is in A1 of the worksheet.
A1 says, for example:
" The next big thing can be found by clicking here "
if the note above were on a web page, all you'd have to do is click on 'here' and you are off the the next big thing. but so far, when i use this code to bring the text in story!A1 into the userform textbox all i get is the text. there is no 'clickability' as it were.
Me.textbox.Value = Range("story!A1").Value
is there some bit of code magic one can use to make a userform textbox function with html code?
Referencing A Textbox Within A Multipage Userform
The code below works when the textbox (txtExt) is not within a multipage but doesn't when it is. I'm presuming i need to reference the multipage and page number but can't seem to get the right syntax.
Private Sub txtExt_Exit(ByVal Cancel As MSForms.ReturnBoolean)
Dim agExt As String
Dim extFind As Range
agExt = txtExt.Value
Set extFind = Range("B1")
For lCount = 1 To WorksheetFunction.CountIf(Columns(2), agExt)
Set extFind = Details.Columns(2).Find(What:=agExt, After:=extFind, LookIn:=xlValues, LookAt:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:=xlNext, MatchCase:=False)
Reset UserForm Textbox Controls
I have the following code that is not working properly. When the form loads it always shows data from the previous time the form loaded. I searched and found the following code which doesn't seem to be working correctly. I thought by unloading the userform the values of the textboxes would "reset". Not happening.
Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
cRow = ActiveCell.Row ' remember the current row

If this control is a TextBox, I would like to read the Text property,
and if it's a ComboBox, I would like to read the Value property.
Public Function readValue(c As Control) As String

' convert the Control to TextBox then put readValue = c.Text
If (TypeName(c) = "ComboBox") Then
'convert the Control to ComboBox then put readValue = c.Value
Userform Textbox Data Entry
I have created a userform with a texbox and a "continue" button. In my macro I first ask the user to input name, date, etc then I have a line that says "frmDiscrepancies.Show". This code shows the userform but I am unable to type anything into the textbox. How do I activate the textbox so that I can type in it? Of course the next step is to be able to click on the command button "continue" and have it continue with the macro...
