Copy All Text From Textbox, Open Notepad, And Automatically Paste To New Notepad Shee
I am trying to copy all text, that is already in the textbox, to a new notepad sheet.
Step 1. Copy all text in Text1 box to clipboard.
Step 2. Open Notepad
Step 3. Paste clipboard to notepad.
All this should be done with one click of a button.
I get as far as copying everything to the clipboard, and it even opens up notepad, but I still have to manually paste (CTRL-V) into notepad.
I would even like it to ask me what name to save it as as well as where to save it at...just like the Save As function in Word or something.
Here is what I have so far.
Private Sub cmdCopytoClipboard_Click()
MyAppID = Shell("NOTEPAD.EXE", 1)
MyAppID = Clipboard.GetText()
Textbox To Work As Simple Notepad
I have a form with a multine textbox and a vertical scroll bar. I open a small .txt file and populate this textbox. This list will always be very small, but I wanted this textbox to work like a simple version of notepad, where the user can edit the list. This works fairly well except for one thing:
The Enter key does not work in the multiline textbox. As a matter of fact, since I also have a Save button (set as default) on this form, if the user presses the Enter key, it will save the list and close the edit form. Shift Enter works, but this does not seem natural to the user. I can remove the default property from the Save button, but this still doesn't solve my problem of no Enter key functionality. I would like the Enter key to work as inserting a vbCrLf wherever the cursor is at.
Does anyone know how to make a multiline textbox work as a simple Notepad?
Also, I load the list using Line Input but when I save, I have to use the following. Depending on what I do while editing. this occasionally results in a blank item at the end of my list that can cause an error the next time I load. Is this the correct way, or is there an easier way?
Private Sub btnSave_Click()
Open App.Path & "groups.txt" For Output As #1
savString = txtGrpList.Text
mySplit = Split(savString, vbCrLf)
For t = 0 To UBound(mySplit) - 1
Print #1, mySplit(t)
Large Text In Textbox Can Be Edited By Notepad
I was wondering how I could prevent the next thing:
I have made a program wich has a help file integrated in the exe itself. you can call it by pressing a button and a form will appear with the help file in a textbox. When I opened the exe file with notepad and I was just searching for things that I could understand I saw the whole text like it would appear in the textbox. I think this is rather unproffesional. I have inserted the text in the textbox true the text propertie of the textbox. So how can I prevent that the text will be completely readable by notepad?
Thanks for the help in advance,
Help With TextBox Adding And Comparing.
I am tring to make a program to calculate the Total for a round of Golf and compare each Golfer's score on each hole for a league scoring system.
Each hole is worth 1 Point and a tie gives each Golfer a 1/2 Point. I am having trouble with correcting a scoring typo. After I put in the scores, cannot make a change unless I close out the program and start over. here is my code:
Private Sub cmdCalculate_Click()
Dim i As Long, i1stTotal As Long, i2ndTotal As Long, _
Score1 As Long, Score2 As Long
For i = 0 To 8
i1stTotal = i1stTotal + Val(txtHole1stPerson(i))
i2ndTotal = i2ndTotal + Val(txtHole2ndPerson(i))
Score1 = Val(txtHole1stPerson(i))
Score2 = Val(txtHole2ndPerson(i))
If Score1 > 0 And Score2 > 0 Then
If Score1 < Score2 Then ' 1st person wins hole
txtPointsa = Val(txtPointsa) + 1
ElseIf Score2 < Score1 Then ' 2nd person wins hole
txtPointsb = Val(txtPointsb) + 1
ElseIf Score1 = Score2 Then ' Tie hole
txtPointsa = Val(txtPointsa) + 0.5
txtPointsb = Val(txtPointsb) + 0.5
txt1stTotal = i1stTotal
txt2ndTotal = i2ndTotal

How could I be able to pass each word in the textbox through so that I could use it in a function I have.

so theres two textboxes. One with a bunch of lines of text in it. and one where user entered a word. System should be able to take users word and compare it with each word in the textbox (by passing it in the function I have).
my question is how do I collect each word so that I could compare them?
Help Comparing A Textbox Input
I am trying to make a simple program wich ask your name, and if the name entered is "edna" it should display a msgbox with a statement. If not it should display a different statement. IThe problem is that i do not know how to tell VB to search for the character. If I use it with numbers the program runs ok, but with letters it just do the "else" option.

Comparing Results And Displaying Recordset In Textbox
Hey guys, I need some suggestion as to how about doing my project. Basically it's using ADO, VB6 and Access.
Things is that after scanning the bar code value into VB, I need to compare the results with the ones in the Access database and display them into text boxes. Below is the attached program I've written so far. The barcode will be scanned into the card_val and I was thinking that by comparing the value in card_val with the database, I can get the values of the other stuff and display them on those text boxes.
Or is it better to make a button whereby after scanning the bar code value into the card_val text box, a click on the button will make it search for result in the VB.
Thanks in advance.
Saving Text In A Textbox Each Time A User Opens The Program (Notepad Type Prog)
Hi. I want to create a program that is just like Notepad, but has the option of being "always on top."
I'm sort of a newbie at programming so I figure the simplest way to do this would be to make a large textbox on a form with a button to save and a button that makes the form 'always on top.' If anyone has a better idea that would accomplish this (like how to make it look more like the real notepad), I'd love to hear it .
Anyway, besides the possibility of someone suggesting something, what my main question is, how do I make it so when the user presses the 'Save' button the text actually saves and is re-loaded each time I open the program?
What would be the best way to implement this feature?
Notepad To Access,Grid And Back To Notepad
i hav a notepad where there are many lines stored in it.
i need it to separate it as each word(; as separtor).
actually there are 50 columns in Access as backend with various datatypes(49 for data and 1 for end of file........two boxes).
so after 50 countings are identified, it is considered as first record. and then data for second record starts.
after saving to the backend Access, i need to view the content in DataGrid(VB6) where editing of records is permitted.so after editing and while saving it to Access,i need the change to be reflected in Notepad also(with the same format as ; as separator between records and two boxes for end of record).
Plz help me to solve this...............its really urgent!!!
NOTE: Attached one.txt for sample and the backend Access table.
