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.

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

Put/Place Cursor Into UserForm TextBox
To accomplish whats in the title, I tried (and think I used successfully previously) the following

With tbfind
.SelStart = 0
.SelLength = Len(.Value)
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)

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.

Private Sub UserForm_Initialize()

' On Error Resume Next

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

With Me
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

TextBox In UserForm To Show Cell Value Instantly
I have two TextBoxes (txtSpan & txtTrib) in a UserForm (frmSizes), when values are entered in these TextBoxes they show (as they are typed) in cells of the spreadsheet. The resulting calculation is in cell B11.

How do I get the value in cell B11 to show in a third TextBox (txtAns) as soon as it is calculated without closing the UserForm or running another code?

Show Current Row Columns UserForm TextBox Controls
I have a spreadsheet that has a userform attached to it with text fields that enter additional data regarding each record. The userform takes these additional 5 fields and inserts them back into the spreadsheet, the final information to be exported back into Access. ( There are of course other ways to do this, but this is how my supervisor wants it done!)

My problem is that now that I can scroll through the spreadsheet without closing the userform, the userform doesnt show the current row's information as I scroll or change rows on the spreadsheet. It will only show the information that was in the row that it was on before i switched back to spreadsheet.

Variable Declaring. Textbox On Userform To Show Value Of A Cell
Users select a row number which then opens up a Userform. Comboboxes and Textboxes on this Userform are then populated with coloumn values (dependant on the row initially selected). If the row number was the same each time I could accomplish this by the following.

Private Sub TextBox1_Enter()
TextBox1.Value = Range("a1")
End Sub

but as its a variable I'm trying the following (which I think should work)

Private Sub TextBox1_Enter()
TextBox1.Value = Range("a" & edi & "")
End Sub

I think I need to declare the variable 'edi' as Public. If so where should this be? I've tried 'Genereal Declaration'

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).....................

Cursor Control With Userform
I have created a simpel userform that shows sales total and it is activated [.show function] whenever an entry is made in the order column. All of this works fine.

The only problem I have is that the curser jumps in to the text box and doesn't return to the order column where next entry needs to be made.

How do you move the curser out of the userform, back to the activesheet?
Ideally it should move to the next cell for the user to make entry.

I am attaching my sample file here. It has some odd things that I was just playing around with as learning experience. But the main question is how to control the curser.

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.

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 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.

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.

Force Focus Back: Pop Up A Userform To Provide Instructions And Collect Some Additional Data From The User

Fill UserForm ListBox & Show Userform
having trouble with the details of actually making these features work for me. I figured out how to create a UserForm with a ListBox and 2 buttons, but I don't know how to proceed from here.

1. Populate the ListBox in the UserForm with a list of names from the sheet "Totals_Dropdowns", cells K2:K11

2. Make the UserForm pop up and enter the user's selection into cell C40 of the "Regenerate Request"

I know these are very basic operations, and I'm pretty sure I can figure out the rest of my problems once I can get past the above.

Show Zero If TextBox Empty
I realize that this is a topic that has been well tread in the forums; I've read many of the responses. Unfortunately even after adapting these responses, my code isn't working as I would hope. I have many textboxes on a userform, and often they can be left without any input from the user. Unfortunately the textboxes serve as the arguments for a function. If the value is zero, the function works as it should. Here is the code I have:

Private Sub txtSalary_Exit(ByVal Cancel As MSForms.ReturnBoolean)
Dim Salary1
If IsEmpty(Me.txtSalary) Then
MsgBox ("It's empty")
Val (Me.txtSalary.Text)
Me.txtSalary.Value = "0"
Me.txtSalary = Format(Me.txtSalary, "$0,000")
End If

The idea was that when the user left the box, if it was empty it would have a value of 0, but if it had a number, it should be formatted to currency without the decimal point. Unfortunately, the "IsEmpty" line doesn't seem to be working. I tried to just use a simple msgbox to check, but when I tab out of the textbox without typing anything, nothing happens. If sure there must be a simple solution I'm missing.

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 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.

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.

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.
