My question is about passing arguments to UserForm procedures. I've created a Main procedure. Main calls a sub procedure and returns an array. Obviously Main can now use the array. But then Main calls a sub procedure to open my userform.
All of my userform sub procedures need to use the array I created in Main. Do I have to pass the array into all of my userform procedures? Into the UserForm_Show procedure? And then again into UserForm_Initialize? And then again into ComboBox_Change? I don't understand how to give my UserForm procedures the array from my Main procedure.
I have been trying to use a multi-select listbox as the argument for a subroutine. For some reason, I keep getting a run time error, type mismatch. I'm baffled because when I define the specific listbox, it works fine, but when I attempt to pass the listbox I get an error.
Public Sub OtherDirectTotal(Expense As ComboBox, CostCat As ComboBox, _ Cost As TextBox, Years As Msforms.listbox) Dim IDC As Double Dim IDCt As Double IDC = Val(UserForm2.txtIDC) / 100 If Years.Selected(0) = True Then If Expense = "Sponsored" Then If UserForm2.ChkODC = False Then Select Case CostCat......................
I want to display a string to users. Normally I would do that using message boxes. But that would not give me enough control over the font size, and I want to display using font size 48.
I could have used global variables, but that is not a good coding way. The other way of doing that is using property procedures. I could pass a string variable to a Label control on the form and then could format it.
I am trying to eliminate a lot of the global variables from my program by passing the variables to my functions and subs as arguments. I am stuck though when it comes to variables created in userforms.
The program starts with a series of userforms that asks the user for information that will be used throughout the rest of the program. Data is assigned to the variables on the click events. Is it possible, without using global variables, to pass those variables to the rest of the program?
I am looking at using forms, as in the Userform... Not used them before, but would like to know, if you create a text box on it, is the value global, so any module can use the var? or how can I, so that value entered can be used on the whole book ?
I have a sheet with 3 macros. It consists of two macros to produce results, and the third to bridge the two together where is all starts. I have built a userform in the sheet and am trying to get the variables in both sheets, to be user changeable and selectable via the userform.
In the attached data, the userform allows for the selection of two sheets, A and B. The user would select in A the sheet with data which is equivalent to Oval_An and in B the sheet with the data equivalent to Oval_DMA. The first macro, Find_75 runs, followed by the second macro, kTest, all working to produce results when hitting the Subtract button on the form. The Find_75 tolerance are also defined via the useform box, as well as kTest's compare tolerance.
This is weird - if you delete a sheet that contained a control then
a. showing a modeless userform resluts in a userofrm that goes invisible at subroutine End b. public variables lose their value
These things do not happen if the sheet did not contain a control. Attached is an example file - put the inputfile.xls in your default file location (or add a path in the code) then open the ProblemDemo.xls and run the main macro to see it fal - isthis another Excelbug I've found?
I have one userform that loads combobox values upon userform Initialize. Though through a second userform changes can be made to anotherworkbook this workbook is saves any changes. when i close the second userform i need to rerun the 1st userform Initialize event to update the combobox's incase changes have been made.
I have several non-modal userforms in my App, some of them have date-fields that require manual entry typing of dd/mm/yy etc (No single userform has more than one date-box in it, this I think may be pivotally useful)
Now the Userform 'Calendar' that is built on the class of the same (cCalendar) name, has the write value line 'ActiveCell.value = theCal.value'
I'm looking to change this to refer to the correct userform.Textbox value, depending on which form is open.
I would imagine I could simply have a global string, whose value is set (or re-set) whenever a Userform is initialized (some sort of 'ActiveUF.value = Me.Name), where I get lost is referring to the components by name, so as to have a case statement by where I go:
Private Sub theCal_AfterUpdate() Select Case ActiveUF Case "AddForm" application.vbe.components("AddForm").controls("AddFormDatePicker").value = theCal.value Case "EditForm" '.... etc end select end sub
better way of doing this (instead of passing around the userform name as a variable) - or proper syntax for referring to controls outside of the 'active' userform (but an open userform nonetheless)?
Every time I have to do this particular thing with userforms, I completely forget how, and the object browser always leads me on an infinite loop of Application.vbe.activevbproject.vbcomponents.vbe.active....
PS - there may be one slight complication to the process - one of the forms, has a 2-tab page in it, each page having similar (but named differently) fields. So I may need to be able to throw in 'Activepage' or whatnot
I have a userForm (Form1) that contains a persons name that I would like to reference in a separate UserForm (Form2). In the separate UserForm (Form2) I need to reference this persons name many times, so I was wondering if there was a was to declare this name in the separate UserForm (Form2) as a constant. Only thing is that a constant, to the best of my knowledge, must be an expression and not a variable. Mainly, I'm trying to avoid declaring the myName variable in each Sub within Form2, which it will be needed for a ton of Sub's.
Code for Form2: Const myName As String = Form1.txtName.Value
What I would like to do is to be able to open a second workbook from a user form, preform some work on it then save and come back to the same place in the original user form.
So in steps:
1 : user clicks command button to open user form 2: user then clicks on command button on userform that opens 2nd workbook via a yes / no message box, but closes userform on 1st workbook (would be ideal if this could stay open, but hidden) 3: user then does work on 2nd workbook, 4: userform on 2nd workbook saves then activates the 1st workbook and reopens the userform
This is where no matter what I try I cant get the command button on the 1st userform to be clicked automatically so the yes / no message box appears.
This is part of the code in the 2nd sheet commandbutton that saves / closes / opens
Code: Unload Me ActiveWorkbook.save Windows("ABC.xlsm").Activate Sheets("Request Sheet").Activate Call Sheets("Request Sheet").ForceClickOnBouttonXYZ Call UserForm1.CommandButton6_Click 'this is where I cant get it to work!! Windows("xyz.xlsm").Close ABC is the 1st workbook xyz is the 2nd workbook
This is the code on the 1st workbook I use to call on the 2nd workbook
Code: Public Sub ForceClickOnBouttonXYZ() Call CommandButton1_Click End Sub
Private Sub UserForm_QueryClose(Cancel As Integer, CloseMode As Integer) If CloseMode = vbFormControlMenu Then Application.ScreenUpdating = True Unload Me RestrictedOptions.Show Else Cancel = True End If End Sub
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.
When I run the userform initialize procedure to reset the values in text boxes and the like instead of resetting like it should, now it closes the userform completely and then won't allow me to show it again, what could be the problem?
Private Sub UserForm_Initialize() Me.MultiPage1.Value = 0 TextBox3.Value = ActiveWorkbook. Sheets("Sales Invoice"). Range("G15").Value Dim hWndForm As Long Dim hMenu As Long hWndForm = FindWindow("ThunderDFrame", Me.Caption) 'XL2000 hMenu = GetSystemMenu(hWndForm, 0) DeleteMenu hMenu, SC_CLOSE, 0& End Sub
The Dim stuff down is to gray out the x button, there are also some module level declarations to go with that...
Private Declare Function FindWindow Lib "user32" Alias "FindWindowA" (ByVal lpClassName As String, ByVal lpWindowName As String) As Long Private Declare Function GetSystemMenu Lib "user32" (ByVal hWnd As Long, ByVal bRevert As Long) As Long Private Declare Function DeleteMenu Lib "user32" (ByVal hMenu As Long, ByVal nPosition As Long, ByVal wFlags As Long) As Long Private Const SC_CLOSE As Long = &HF060
the userform shows when the workbook opens and is then hidden when the user has finished entering values, then when the user goes through the process of being asked to print and save, they are then asked if they would like to create a new record, if yes then it shows the userform again, but the userform is still filled with all the stuff previously entered. I tried using the unload me instead of hiding and that wouldn't work at all, didn't give errors just didn't show the userform either, this at least shows the userform, but now when the user goes to clear the information by initializing the userform again, it simply closes the userform and then it can't be shown again either.
This is the link to the ZIP, and here are some instructions for setting it up to work.
The contents of this need to be unzipped into a folder called SyntheticShield that is placed in the C: drive that way all paths begin with C:SyntheticShield and then the other folders or files will be referenced correctly. The template I'm having problems with is the SyntheticShieldInvoiceMaker template, when you open it you'll be prompted whether you want to create a new invoice, number is final blah blah blah, say yes, then it will ask if you are importing from the Quotemaker which you aren't say no, it should then show the userform as it should. Then you can go through that process and by pressing either the create invoice or go to template directly whatever, you can hide the userform. Then you press the command button (red) a userform is brought up asking if you'd like to save without emailing, save with emailing or close controls, as for right now, I'm just getting the save without emailing to work the rest is all the same just a few tidbits of code. So click save without emailing, it should then prompt an are you sure message box, click yes it will do some things, then it will ask if you want to print, click no, then it will ask do you want to create a new invoice, click yes, this should then start the process all over again by calling the workbook_open procedure, however, when you go through everything, and click no to the import from quotemaker part it won't show the userform. And at one point it would, but then I couldn't initialize the userform without it disappearing and not being allowed to be shown...I tried putting a command button on the template to show the userform, but it wouldn't do it either.
In order to deal with the multitude of screen resolutions that can be found at our work, I have got a module to check the current screen resolution on loading the workbook. I then have set up 3 different sized userforms, all containing the same coding, and based on the displayed screen resolution one of these is open (the userforms are named Customer1, Customer2, Customer3).
The displayed userform then has a button to show another userform (Customer_Details), and this form requires some referencing back to the previous form for some of it's information eg,
customer_details.textbox1.text = customer(1, 2 or 3).textbox1.text customerdetails.combobox1.list = customer(1, 2 or 3).combobox.list
way for me reference the specific "Customer" form that has been opened, without calling it by name?
I have a large userform (Main) that the users enter data into. At the end of the data entry the users click OK and the data is transferred to a spreadsheet. I then ask the users if they want to add another record. If they click "Yes" all is OK. If they click "No" the userform should close and another "switchboard" type userform should open.
My problem is that try as I might I cannot get the (Main) userform to close. It only does so after the switchboard closes.
If I don't load the switchboard, main closes without issue.
I have left out the bulk of the data transferred to the "data" sheet in the code below.
Private Sub Main_OK_Button_Click()
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Sheets("Data").Visible = True
Sheets("Data"). Range("F2").Value = Surname.Text
Dim result As VbMsgBoxResult result = MsgBox("Do you wish to enter another record?", vbYesNo + vbInformation, "Continue...") If result = vbNo Then
