Changing Textbox Background Based On Other Cell Text

Jul 15, 2014

I wish for a text box (drawn Text Box, from the "Shapes" tab) to conditionally change its background color based on whether a cell in a different sheet says "Online" - in which case it should be green, or "Offline" - in which case it should be red. So far, the code that I have that doesnt work at all, which I'm not even sure where to place (I tried in the Workbook - Open?), is the following:

[Code] .....

I also need to do this for a total of 9 Text Boxes, if that changes anything.

Worksheet Controls Text Direction Not Left To Right

Aug 20, 2007

When placing a control on a worksheet, the text in the label,option box etc controls is vertical and I can't find a way of changing the direction to left to right. It doesn't happen on all workbooks. I can put the control on a "normal" workbook and then copy it to the "abnormal" workbook but I would like to know why/how I can change the direction of the text.

Under Tools/Options/International the text direction states left to right

Refreshing Activex Textbox

Apr 6, 2009

I've built a spreadsheet with quasi-animation for a physics class on projectile motion. In it there's a animated chart showing velocity change as a function of distance. The chart has on it an ActiveX textbox that refers to a cell that contains a formula showing "V_y = {velocity}". I've tried a number of things to get the display of the textbox to change during the animation. If I break the code at the line that updates the cell referenced by the textbox the display changes. But I can't figure out how to get the display to update while the code is running.

Clear ActiveX Textbox

May 15, 2013

Is there anyway to adapt this code:

Private Sub CommandButton2_Click()
Dim rngInput As Range
Set rngInput = Sheet1.Range("Q197:T207") '

To clear contents in Active X text boxes as well as normal cells? The text boxes lie in the Q column and I want them to be cleared as well, whenever I press 'clear' (command Button 2)

ActiveX Textbox Back Color - Transparent

Jan 14, 2012

Possible to set the BackColor of an ActiveX textbox to transparent? I have the BackStyle set to transparent, which is great since it will be transparent when not selected so you can see the color of the cell behind it, but once you select it to type in it, the BackColor overrides the cell behind it.

Right now, I have a sheet where the color of a cell changes to green if the textbox needs input from a user. If I have the BackColor set to white, the cell behind will change to green so the user knows they need to enter something in the textbox, but once they click the textbox, it goes white and may confuse them.

On the other hand, if I change the BackColor to green, it works great when the user clicks the correct textboxes, but if the user clicks the wrong textbox, it will 'incorrectly' turn green which may make the user believe they need to enter something in the textbox.

Type Value Into ActiveX Textbox Into Cell In Another Worksheet

May 9, 2013

I have several textboxes that are not on a userform; they reside on worksheet A. I want to format these textboxes so that they only accepts numberical values (like 500, dollar sign and no cents needed). After typing in 500,000 lets say for this example, I want to paste it into a cell in worksheet B (I can actually handle this part). What iIcan't handle is:

Formatting the textboxes so that they only accept numbers (or display a message if a number is not entered) Display the 500000 as 500,000 in the textbox without the user having to enter a comma Hitting enter or tab to get the value from the textbox into the cell in worksheet B. It only pastes it into worksheet B when I click on another cell. That doesn't seem like the right way to enter data.

I am wondering if I just should have used a userform and added the controls onto it. I have 8 sets of 5 user controls; I thought this would be easier.

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

ActiveX Listbox Does Not Work With VBA Code For Changing Chart Axis Scale?

Jun 5, 2014

I have some code for changing the scale of my chart axes so that when new data is inserted into the column which the chart sources from (say column B), the axis scales on my chart will automatically adjust (as the Excel algorithm sometimes leads to charts which are a bit squashed). This code works fine, and I have included it below.

I have then tried to introduce an ActiveX listbox so that when you select an item in the box, the reference number generated (1,2,3...etc) then determines which data series is inserted into column B using a vlookup function. However, when I do this, the original VBA code for automatically adjusting the chart axes no longer works.

Option Explicit
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
With ActiveSheet.ChartObjects(1).Chart

ActiveX Command Button Text Looks Bad

Aug 12, 2009

I have created an ActiveX command button and the text on the button looks crude. I know that is not very descriptive but I am unsure how to describe it. The text looks jagged and some letters are missing chunks of their letters. The font I have chosen is Calibri.

If I create a Form Controls button I do not have this problem but I want the button to have a particular background color so I do not believe I can use a Form Controls button.

I do not know why the other Calibri text on the worksheet looks fine while the ActiveX Calibri text does not. The attached image shows the two buttons with the top one being the ActiveX button while the bottom is a Forms button.

Centering Text On ActiveX Button?

Apr 2, 2014

I have searched high and low and cannot seem to find an answer. I have inserted an ActiveX button in a cell to run 3 macros when pressed. I cannot get the 4-letter name on the button to appear centered on the button, unless I make the button larger than the cell, which I do not want to do.

Text Inconsistencies In ActiveX Combo Boxes

Jan 16, 2010

I'm building an application that uses a large number of activex combo boxes. These boxes are getting loaded from specific fields in an associated database.

I know ActiveX combo boxes can be buggy; I'm wondering if anyone has found a way around the text appearance inconsistencies seen in these controls? e.g., sometimes the text is smaller, sometimes it's spaced wider, sometimes it appears at the top of the combo box sometimes in the center.

I put a screen shot of what I'm talking about in a word doc along with a control properties screen shot, All controls have the same properties except for the text property.

Textbox Error When Changing Number

Apr 10, 2007

This code works fine, the problem is if I put a number in, and then backspace in the textbox to change the number, I get a runtime 13, type mismatch. This error only occurs when I delete all the numbers in the cell. For example, say the number in the cell is 5025. If i change it to 5123, that is I did not have to delete the first 5, it will work. If I want to change to something like 4167, i must delete the first 5 and it will give the error. I have only been using VBA for a couple weeks, I assume it's something simple.

Private Sub TextBox1_Change()
Dim StaffCost As Single
Dim AvgDriveTime As Single
Dim AddlDrives As Single
StaffCost = OLEObjects("TextBox1").Object.Value
AvgDriveTime = Range("E5").Value
AddlDrives = Range("F5").Value
With Range("G5")
.Font.Bold = False
.Value = StaffCost * AvgDriveTime * AddlDrives
End With
End Sub

Multiple Formats Inside Single Text Box (activex)

Dec 29, 2008

I'm having trouble keeping the formatting correctly in a text box through VBA. I'm sure this is something simple, but I'm the intern that got stuck with trying to program for the break since they know I've taken classes on the subject. I've been able to figure out a lot

End goal: To have the first word of a text box larger, underlined, and bolded. Problem: It only formats it Calibri at 24 point with no special formatting as indicated in the code.

Adding Text From One Userform Textbox To Another Textbox

Oct 12, 2011

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

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.

ActiveX Control Text Box Inserted Which Is Not Letting To Fetch The Desirous Result?

Apr 20, 2014

In A1 there is an ActiveX Control Text Box inserted, now in A1 cell which is beneath this text box contain the formula that if A9 is blank than "Customer Name" should appear else it should show blank. But the problem is when I write some thing in this text box which is connected with A9, formula works as "Customer Name" disappears but when I delete in text box it simply acts as if something is still present in cell A9 and formula does not comeback to "Customer Name" again & therefore in order to appear "Customer Name" I have to go to A9 and press delete button to get the desirous result from the formula.

Readers are requested to make this formula work becz the situation in which this formula has been invented is well fitted and not other formula can supplant it.

Calculation Direction....?

Aug 26, 2009

My understanding of Excel is that the calculations are performed in Column A first and then down through the rows in Column A. After all the calculations are finished in A, the calculation moves over to Column B and down the rows in B. Is this true?

I know that Excel is a little more complicated than that especially when it creates a queue for calculations, etc. However, assuming there's no calculation list/queue, would the above be correct?

Compass Direction Differences

Jul 12, 2006

I'm trying to do is take the difference of two wind directions but need the actual difference not the true mathematical difference. For example:

Wind direction 350 was forecasted
Wind direction 020 was observed
The difference is 030 degrees off not 330 degrees.

How do I do a formula to state the true difference not numeric?

I was figuring these conditions:
- if the number is above 180 & below 360 just subtract 180
- if the number is below 180 & above 0 just add 180

Using w/ example:
170-200=-030 (then take ABS to get 030)

I'm a weather professional and doing tons of metrics regarding weather parameters.
