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.

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.

Textbox Set Focus

Nov 2, 2007

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

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

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 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?

Jun 5, 2008

To accomplish whats in the title, I tried (and think I used successfully previously) the following

With tbfind

End With

Some details, i have a userform named Findform, a textbox in it named tbFind, and the above code is in the userform initialization event section.

Oh also, I dont get any error, everything runs just fine, its just the cursor is not inside the textbox waiting for typing in it. (but i do think it is the focus, when i press tab it goes to the next one in the tab order)

Position Flashing Cursor At The End Of String In Textbox

Oct 15, 2013

I have a choice of 9 command buttons on a form that enter a short string of text into a textbox. Each button enters a different string into the textbox. The string is the prefix to a product serial number. Once the user has clicked the button & entered his preferred prefix I would like the cursor to be flashing after the last character ready for the user to manually type in the remainder of the product serial number. I'm guessing (with my limited ability) that I have to create a function to do this & then call the function when the button is clicked ?

how to get rid of the blinking cursor in a text box. I made a splash screen, added a text box, increased the font size to maximum, and when I run it there is a maximum sized blinking cursor at the end of the line of text. Just looks bad on the splash screen. Is there a hide cursor command that I can use? Or is there a better way to add text that I (obviously) didn't use?

Formatting TextBox And Check Which TextBox Is The Active TextBox In The Loop

May 18, 2006

I am attempting to format some TextBoxes from within a For/Next loop. I need a way to check which TextBox is the active TextBox in the loop. Using i as the variable, I came up with this code snippet: Me.Controls("TB" & i).Text = Format("TB" & i, "mm/dd/yy")

If i = 3, this gives me in TextBox3 (which is called TB3) the text 'TB3' and not the value of what is in TB3. It has got to bo something simple, I just can't see it!!!

Change To Proper Case In VBA

Aug 10, 2009

I found this bit of Worksheet_Change code to change the target area to UpperCase. This works fine.

If Not Intersect(Target, Columns(2)) Is Nothing Then
Set rng1 = Intersect(Target, Columns(2))
Set rng2 = Intersect(ActiveSheet.UsedRange, rng1)
For Each cell In rng2
If cell.Formula "" Then
cell.Formula = Format(cell.Formula, ">")
End If
Next cell
End If
I could not find anything telling me what the ">" means. I'm assuming that it is a special symbol/wildcard for UCase in VBA.

My question(s), is there a symbol for ProperCase so I can use the same code, just making it change the Target column to Proper? Also is there a list of the special symbols.

Proper Case Exemptions

Jun 3, 2006

When I asked this question before, I was looking for a way to automate the exemptions on a UserForm. At that time I realized that automation was not a good choice and went with a CommandButton to turn off the Proper case for that entry. I am now trying to do the same thing on a Worksheet change event using this

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If Target.Count > 1 Then Exit Sub
If Target.Column < 1 Or Target.Column > 9 Then Exit Sub
On Error Goto Errhndl
Application.EnableEvents = False
If Target.Column = 1 Then Target.Value = Application.Proper(Target.Value)
If Target.Column = 2 Then Target.Value = Application.Proper(Target.Value)
If Target.Column = 3 Then Target.Value = UCase(Target.Value)
If Target.Column = 4 And Target.Value > "" Then Target.Value = UCase(Left(Target.Value, 2)) & "-" & Right(Target.Value, 2)
If Target.Column = 8 Then Target.Value = UCase(Target.Value)
If Target.Column = 9 Then Target.Value = UCase(Target.Value)
Application.EnableEvents = True
Exit Sub
Application.EnableEvents = True
End Sub

My problem is with Target.Column = 1. I need a way to disable the proper case for a single row. I tried to use an additional column (J) and place a x in that row, but I could not figure out how to detect if there was anything in that column for the target row.
