Focus Not Setting Correctly

Jul 21, 2009

I have a userform with several inputs which are validated, and should the input be invalid an ErrorProcedure is run. This basically displays a message telling the user what is wrong, and it should also be highlighting the text in the relevant field, but for some reason it is not doing that.

Trouble Setting Focus After Closing MsgBox

Mar 31, 2008

I am using the TextBox.Change method to test for numerical input. How can I highlight incorrect input after closing the MsgBox? The following code doesn't always work:

If Not IsNumeric(TxtStage1.Value) Then
Response = MsgBox("Numerical value required", vbExclamation + vbOKOnly, "Invalid input")
TxtStage1.SetFocus
TxtStage1.SelStart = 0
TxtStage1.SelLength = Len(TxtStage1.Text)
End If

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

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?

To Set Focus To The RefEdit Control In Userform

Feb 23, 2007

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.

Change Sheet Focus From UserForm

Jun 6, 2006

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.

Set Focus To Application After Hiding UserForm

Sep 21, 2007

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):

DoCmd.OpenForm "UserForm1"

to hide

Private Sub CloseButton_Click()
UserForm1.Hide
End Sub

Focus Activecell After Display Of Modeless Userform

May 7, 2009

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

Jan 19, 2010

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.

set prevrnge = selection

UF.show (vbmodeless)

prevrnge.select

but it doesn't take the focus off the userform....

Return Focus To Sheet While Still Displaying A UserForm

Dec 16, 2009

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.

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.

Minimize Userform And Give Focus To Immediate Next Window When Button Clicked

May 10, 2014

I currently have a small userform placed at the bottom right of the screen (with a command button on it) and this opens up on top of excel instances and other applications/windows and it is set so that you can't interact with anything except the userform.

I wanted to minimize the userform and give focus to immediate next window (can be excel or non excel applications) for 10 seconds and then activate/show the userform back again, when the "Button 1" on the userform is clicked.

I tried hiding the userform, but this doesn't give focus to the immediate next window. Below is the code

Private Sub Button_Click()
Me.Hide
PauseApp (10)
Me.Show
End Sub

I could only find answers for adding minimize and maximize buttons to userform.

When the button is clicked, it should perform

Step a - Minimize the userform
Step b - Give focus to the next immediate window behind the userform
Step c - Wait for 10 seconds
Step d - Bring back the userform its to state.

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

Feb 18, 2009

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?

Setting Global Variable From A UserForm

Jul 31, 2009

I have a UserForm that runs when my excel project starts that prompts the user for two pieces of data: a username and a password (these are not for logging into the file itself, I need to use them to call web queries later). I want the UserForm to store both of these data in global variables, so that macros that are run in the future can refer to them and read their values. Unfortunately, I am very new to VBA and I cannot figure out what code I need and where exactly I need to put it. Here is my current code, where "authentication" is the name of the UserForm object, and the textboxes I use for entry are named "user" and "pass": In "This Workbook"

Worksheet Get Focus

Jun 2, 2006

I've got a worksheet with a cell called "cellName" and a button "cmdSearch". When I enter a string in cellName and press cmdSearch a query is done on a database and the result is returned to the form. Now, when I enter text into cellName I then have to click on a different cell before I can click on cmdSearch. What I'd like to do is have cmdSearch take focus if I press enter in cellName. I know how to do this with a UserForm, but I like having all of this on the worksheet and not dealling with a popup box.

Takes Focus When Printing

Jan 8, 2009

I am running software that calls an Excel macro using DDE. The macro populates a sheet with information to be printed, then prints the sheet.

I would like for this to take place in the background with Excel never taking focus from the software that calls the Excel macro. Currently Excel some times takes focus from the software and some times does not. The macro also takes the information it prints and stores it to another sheet, but I don't think that's the culprit stealing focus from the other software.
