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 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 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.
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.
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?
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
I tried looking for everywhere, but i still cant seem to find the solution.. I have an Active X textbox on a worksheet, and I need it's value to show up on a textbox on my userform, that shows up through a command button on that worksheet. I'm fairly new to vba.
