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
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
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 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
Put/Place Cursor Into UserForm TextBox
To accomplish whats in the title, I tried (and think I used successfully previously) the following
.SelStart = 0
.SelLength = Len(.Value)
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 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()
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.
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....
set prevrnge = selection
but it doesn't take the focus off the userform....
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?
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")
but as its a variable I'm trying the following (which I think should work)
Private Sub TextBox1_Enter()
TextBox1.Value = Range("a" & edi & "")
I think I need to declare the variable 'edi' as Public. If so where should this be? I've tried 'Genereal Declaration'
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.
Set Text & Hide Control On UserForm Show/Load
I'm trying to do is set up a form load event to initlize some controls. Here is my

At the moment, this event is not triggering. I have the code in the code behind my form - should it be in a module? PS: This site is great - it's answered a lot of my other questions so far without me having to make any posts.
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).

Set Focus On Combobox
I have an application in excel in which a “combobox1” has been created on the main sheet of excel. Somewhere during the code execution the program requires input from the “combobox1”. What is the code required to highlight the “combobox1” allow the user to select from the box and then return control back to the regular code?
Set Focus, If Thats The Correct Code
I have a userform with several fields located in it. For the most part, it looks like a user information form, Name, Date,, stuff like that. There is a field that the user enters some information, and using the afterUpdate function for the field, it searches to see if the value is unique. The problem is that when I tab from that field, if the value is not unique, I want the cursor placed back in that field (textbox). SetFocus doesn't seem to do what I want, unless I am using it incorrectly.
Marco To Show Picture When Cursor Point To Item
I need help on how to do this.
I have a list of parts in cell A1 to A10 in sheet1. And I have all the parts photo in sheet2. What I want is, when I move my cursor to the name of the part in sheet1, say is .. A1, then the A1 photo from Sheet2 will show up at a defined cell so that I know how the parts look like.
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.
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.
Force Focus To Range From Modeless UserForm

also this line

does not work , it gives me Invalid proceduers or call argument.

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.
Return Focus To Worksheet From Userform 2007 Vs 2000

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...:
UserForms("Userform1").TextBox1.Value = UserForms("Userform2").TextBox2.Value
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.
Unload Active Userform And Show New Userform

Trying to use above code to unload active userform and show new userform when red X (close) selected by operator. With the code as is, the Unload Me leaves the form on the screen and displays the RestrictedOptions form. If i remove the Restrictedoptions.Show, the Unload Me does remove the original form.
Set Textbox Controls
way of setting the values of textbox controls, the way im using below is very repetitive and has to be run through every time a combobox1 is changed. Im also going to have to add a lot more case scenarios in the short future.

For Each ctl In Me.Controls
If TypeOf ctl Is MSForms.TextBox Then
ctl.Enabled = True
ctl.Locked = False
ctl.Value = ""
Set Maximum Value For Textbox
I encounter another problem. How can I set the function in textbox,so that,if the input number exceed the max. predifined value,it will not accepted?I did try on my own,but even I put the number lower than max value,the msgbox will still appear.

Populate Userform Textbox From Another Userform
I want to populate a textbox (output) on one userform with data from a textbox (target) on another userform.
The data in the textbox (target) is the result of calculations in the userform code and is not gathered from or saved to a cell.
I want the textbox (output) to be populated at "Userform intialize" event.
I have tried various other methods without any success.
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)
If IsEmpty(Me.txtSalary) Then
MsgBox ("It's empty")
Me.txtSalary.Value = "0"
Me.txtSalary = Format(Me.txtSalary, "$0,000")
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.
Set TextBox ControlSource To Non Active Sheet
I need to use the Textbox ControlSource in some forms to read specific data from worksheets, different source sheet for each form. How do I tell the ControlSource to look at a specific cell in a specific sheet, rather than just the active sheet? I want to do this using the properties of the Textbox rather than VBA.
Show UserForm From Another UserForm CommandButton
I have a userform button that when clicked loads another userform.
I am getting a Runtime Error 13: Type mismatch on the line in bold in the code below

I do not get an error on the "Edit" button code which is similar so why is the above not working.

Me.txtEdit.Value = Me.VarNo.Value
Show Userform Or Launch A Userform
I want to use the following to launch a userform I created.

Show Cell Value In TextBox On ComboBox Selection
I want to select a customer name from a ComboBox in a UserForm and populate a TextBox with additional customer information for the end user. The additional customer information is always located in C3 in sheet2 (the result of a formula). However, the text box only refreshes when I click into it. Is it possible to have it refresh without clicking into the userform textbox)? I’ve tried _Change and _Afterupdate. I'm sure this must be easy for anyone but a novice like myself. Sample attached (play marco...button dead?).
Private Sub ComboBox1_Initialize()
Me.TextBox1.Text = ""
Private Sub ComboBox1_Afterupdate()
Me.TextBox1.Text = Worksheets("Sheet2").Range("C3").Value
