Force Every Letter Entered In Text Box To Be Uppercase
How do I force every letter typed into a textbox to be uppercase. Also where is the best place to put this code ie keyup or keydown etc.

When the user types in hello to the textbox when they press h it should appear as H and so on.

Regards, Locutus

I'm writing a program that checks spelling using word and excel. I throw some text into word or excel, which ever one I'm using, and this text is all in uppercase letters. For word, it was easy to convert the Word.Selection.Text = strconv(string, vblowercase) but for excel I'm lost. How would I change all the text in excel to lowercase or uppercase... any suggestions???

Uppercase & Lowercase
Thanks all for your help but pardon me for thinking like a idiot
but how do i put the code you all sent me into my program.
for instance in one text box i wish to change the first letter to capital on inputing the name i have attached part of the code for this form

private sub text1_change (index as integer)

dim temp_spread as currency
dim tempnum
dim ipt
dim vb
dim mystring as string
mystring =""
debug.print ucase(left$(mystring,1)) & lcase(mid$(mystring,2))

the text box is text1(37)

Hello Gurus...

VB Code:
Private Sub Command1_Click()Dim strString1, strString2 As String     strString1 = "[color=Red]A[/color]bc"    strString2 = "[color=Red]a[/color]bc"        If strString1 <> strString2 Then        MsgBox "Not the same value"    Else        MsgBox "Same value"    End If End Sub

The result above is "Not the same value".
This is because of letter "A" for strString1 is UPPERCASE and letter "a" for strString2 is LOWERCASE.

How to avoid UPPERCASE/LOWERCASE comparison in string?

Uppercase/lowercase &amp; Spelling Checks...
Hi im building this trivia game

1st) how can i make it so that the text entered into a text box and when a command button is clicked, it will look at the text and it will not matter if the letters stored in the varible is uppercase or lowercase and it will not prove it wrong...

2) How can i make it so that if the spelling is near correct of the answer that they put in, it will correct it and allow it and if its far off it will prove it wrong??


How To Accept Uppercase And Lowercase In Inputbox?
hi guys

i would like to make a little tweak to my program however i am struggling to do so

i have declared the variable "A" in my program,
then i use a inputbox and ask the user to type something.
if he types "A" as required, it opens a file etc..
however if he types "a" in lowecase nothing happens?

so i was wondering, is there any way to force entry of "A" into the inputbox, so what ever he types anything lowercase in the inputbox will automatically be capitlized into uppercase in the inputbox.

either that or just make visual basic accept both "A" and "a" and produce the same output.

can you please tell me which method is best, bearing in mind that i would like it to take as little coding as possible.
1 line of code would be great if its possible?

How To Convert Uppercase To Lowercase In A Textbox As I Type?
hello everybody,

i got a new problem with my app. i want to convert uppercase to lowercase in a text box as i type by. so when i type "A" it should automatically convert to "a" and when i type the rest like APPLE, then it should convert everthing to lcase. also is there is any way i can restrict some dirty words from entering into the textbox so that enduser cannot out dirty words in the text box and save it. i find a solution to check for dirty words. below is my code.

VB Code:
Private Sub Command1_Click() If Text1.Text = "*******" Then   MsgBox "You cannot enter this word in the field."   Exit Sub End IfEnd Sub

but for every word, i have to use IF all the time. so is there is anyone where i can use only 1 IF and it will check rest like example..

VB Code:
Private Sub Command1_Click() If Text1.Text = CheckWord Then   MsgBox "You cannot enter this word in the field."   Exit Sub End IfEnd Sub

Uppercase And Lowercase Issues In Access / Vba Program
I have an access DB , one of the tables has a field for wharehouse location which can be either a number or a text field. I have set the fields format to > as I want the text entry to be uppercase. In the database this works fine, if the user enters "ue" in the DB it is converted to UE. But when the ascii file is generated from the table the field is written as ue ( lowercase ). The ascii file process just reads through each record and writes it to the file. I dont really want to change the VBA code if possible because it is all object orientated code and I have'nt done much in the way of OO. Is access only displaying the field with ue as uppercase instead of truly converting in ?. Can I get access to convert it permently in the table so that when it is written to text file it comes out as uppercase. I would really like access to do this for me as I am not 100% on the code and don't want to affect anything else.

Thanx for any help

UpperCase And LowerCase Interferring In Search &amp; Location Search
Title kinda explains it... In a listbox I have a list of words (Lots of them). Some of these words have capital letters (Names and such) but when the 'user' types in a word in the search textbox with all lowercase letters, it only lists the words that start with lowercase letters


User Types in = "case"

Words in results:


Words not in results, but should show up:

Case of Billy
Case of the cases of caseness (Yes, i know i'm making up words, but these are examples)

So, i need it to search for upper and lower case letters in a word, no matter where it is...

Also, I need the keysearch to pick up on words in the middle of the string...


User types: "case"

Should show but doesn't:

Guitar Case
Violin Case
The fifth word is Case and it won't show up!

So, I hopefully got that squared away 'clearly' if it is even remotely close to that... I'm searching for these things in a text file, using the 'Reading Records' Lesson I used in class. The notepad looks like this:

"Guitar Case"
"Violin Case"
"Case of Caseness"

and i'm using this code to recall the data, so these fixes have to fit in with it:

Code:Private Sub txtboxSearch_Change()
    Dim intfile As Integer
    Dim strSearch As String
    Dim strResult As String
    Dim strPattern As String

    strSearch = txtboxSearch.Text
    intfile = FreeFile
    Open "D:Results.txt" For Input As #intfile
    Do While Not EOF(intfile)
        Input #intfile, strResult
        strpattern = strSearch & "*"
        If (strResult Like strPattern) Then
            listbox01.AddItem strResult
        End if
    Close intfile
End Sub

This search works really well , (except for the problems above of course)... If you can't see how strPattern works, it puts what the user typed in the box with an astrik in front of it so I can use the 'Like' thingy <---(newbie word)

Thanks in advanced!

Determine If Text Is Uppercase Or Lower?
Just incase you all think im making a cracking key generator program im not, im making a simple password maker program where you can generate random codes for use in your own registration programs.

Anyway, i have many options, the one in paticular is to determine whether the user wants his generated key to be in Uppercase or Lowercase. Then when you click Generate, if it is in Uppercase, the generated string should be in Ucase, and Vice Versa. (I also need to know how to make all generated characters be converted into a random case, so some characters are Ucase, others Lcase etc. For example "THiS striNG cONtAins a MiX OF ucAsE and LCAse ChaRACTerS", but i dont need that just yet.)

Change Textbox Text Colour For Different Letter.

I am creating some mental maths testing software for a school, and when the student enters an incorrect answer, I want all the parts of the answer in the textbox to change colour. For example, if the answer is 1234, and the student enters 1233 into one textbox, I want the last three to change to a different colour.

Is it possible to change the colour of just one or two letters in a textbox?
