Set Focus To TextBox On UserForm

Oct 16, 2006

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

Jul 29, 2009

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

Mar 7, 2008

I am trying to SetFocus on a single textbox in a simple form. I am not sure if I am doing it right.

Private Sub UserForm_Initialize()

' Set rheadings = Worksheets("CONTACT").Range("A1:F1")
' For Each cl In rheadings
' Me.cbxSearchWhere.AddItem cl.Value
' Next cl

With Me
tbxSearchCrit.SetFocus
End With
End Sub

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

May 18, 2007

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.

If IsNumeric(TextBox1.Text) Then MsgBox "Please enter TEXT value only.", vbInformation + vbOKOnly

Focus To Return To Textbox

Feb 14, 2007

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 Not Working On TextBox After After Update

Mar 30, 2014

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!

My code below:

Set Focus Not Redirecting Cursor To Proper Textbox

Jun 18, 2014

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.

Aug 28, 2013

When the workbook opens, sheet 1 is selected. There is an activex textbox on sheet 1 that should receive focus.

Worksheets("regular sku").ScrollArea = "I1:T36"

To Set Focus To The RefEdit Control In Userform

Feb 23, 2007

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.

Change Sheet Focus From UserForm

Jun 6, 2006

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):

Focus Activecell After Display Of Modeless Userform

May 7, 2009

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.

Return Focus To Sheet While Still Displaying A UserForm

Dec 16, 2009

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.

Minimize Userform And Give Focus To Immediate Next Window When Button Clicked

May 10, 2014

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.

Force Focus Back: 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?

Adding Text From One Userform Textbox To Another Textbox

Oct 12, 2011

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

[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

Code:
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.

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)).
