FlexGrid With Checkbox
Hi people!

I'm searching for a control like flexgrid with the checkbox option. I would like the user to select from the checkbox in flexgrid which options he likes and the program would then calculate them.

I hope you understand what I mean. I've seen many programs using this type of controls, but I don't know which one it is.


Flexgrid To Checkbox
ok I got help on here earlier on how to get the info from a flext grid into text boxes and I got it working with this code;

Flex1.Col = 1
txtStudentNum.Text = Flex1.Text
Flex1.Col = 2
txtFirst = Flex1.Text
Flex1.Col = 3
txtLast.Text = Flex1.Text
and so on

but when I get to the checkboxes that need filled with checks it doesn't work. The value of the checkboxes is stored in a acess database.

I tried a few different things;

Flex1.Col = 1
check1.value = Flex1.Text

Flex1.Col = 1
check1.Text = Flex1.Text

Flex1.Col = 1
check1= Flex1.Text

Flex1.Col = 1
check1= Flex1

none of them work
can anyone help me?

Checkbox In Flexgrid

I'm new to VB and although I've already figured out a lot of stuff, there are some problems I can't seem to find a solution to. I have made a different thread for each of them.

I find it strange that a combo box is different in Visual Basic and Visual Basic for application. When I use a combo box in VBA (MS Access), I can define the first column as being the key, and I can hide that column. In Visual Basic, however, this seems to be impossible...

For example: When you have a database with your CD collection, you also (probably) have a field with the type of music (house, techno...). These types are stored in a seperate table and each type has a unique key. It's that key that is stored in each CD -record. And so you have a relationship between your CD-table and your 'typeOfMusic'table. Right!?
But in Visual Basic I can't seem to make a multiple-column combo box...? Am I right, or am I missing something...?

Flexgrid Checkbox Wingdings
Hey I am using this code inside the click event of my flexgrid to check/uncheck a cell. I noticed that when using this method the first time you want to check a box you have to click it twice... does anyone know a way around this or what is causing it?

VB Code:
Private Sub ExchangeGrid_Click()With ExchangeGrid    If .MouseCol = 5 Then        If .TextMatrix(.Row, 5) = "q" Then            .TextMatrix(.Row, 5) = "ž" 'checked        Else            .TextMatrix(.Row, 5) = "q"        End If    End IfEnd WithCall CalcExchangeTotalEnd Sub


Checkbox Flexgrid Question
I did a search on how to add a checkbox field or fake checkbox if you will... I want to go with the wingding method like in this thread:

the only problem I am having is the alt+231 isn't giving me that pb character in my vb screen... instead I am getting a "t". Anyone know what I am doing wrong?

My Checkbox Control
Well, yesterday, I was bored (as usual), so I wrote a control. Now, mind you, this is my first (partially?) completed control, and has some bugs in it. For example, during design time, sometimes the checkmark disappears, and the only events that are raised properly are the click, mousedown and mouseup events. Anyway, take a gander, it has some added features over the normal checkbox (you can use a check, X, circle or solid checkmark) and it's colors are fully customizable. Anyway, check it out, it's included.

Control Checkbox?
Hi all

I need to be able to check a check box with code and
also check if others are checked ?

I had this code but for the life of me have lost it.

I have a form and when it opens 3 checkboxes will be ticked by default.

Then if the user changes the checked settings the code will have to change accordingly.

any ideas appreciated.

Is There A Way To... With The Checkbox Control?

Im writting a little program that several checkboxes, the thing is that some these checkboxes, when clicked, have to check verify some proceeds. If the proceeds are correct the chkbox have to do its value = 1, else value = 0.

When it happens, value chages, the control will work like if the user has click on it, and if the proceeds are not correct i will do an "infinite cycle".

I wonder if i could separate the changing value event from/of the click event? Or i just have to repeat the boolean procedures to close and open the control entry?

I hope that you get my idea...

Checkbox Control Issue Help?
I am learning and I am having trouble with this code that I used in VB6 with a check box array. But it doesn't like this line:
If CheckBox(x).CheckState = 1 Then. There is a squigly line under the word CheckBox. The tool tip says that "Checkbox" is a type and cannot be used as an expression. What do I need to do here to correct this?


'Check to see if a option has been selected
Dim x As Short
Dim checked1 As Boolean 'checks if 1 checkbox is already checked
checked1 = False
For x = 0 To 17
If CheckBox(x).CheckState = 1 Then
checked1 = True
Exit For
End If
Next x
If checked1 = False Then
MsgBox("Please select at least 1 option")
Exit Sub
End If

Control Excel Checkbox From Vb

I am trying to set a checkbox value in an excel workbook.

this is the code I have so far:

Set oExcel = CreateObject("Excel.Application")
Set oBook = xExcel.Workbooks.Add("c:formulier.xlt")

End With
oBook.SaveAs "c:" & Me.cmbModule & Me.txtOmsKort & ".xls"

In this code I open excel fill 3 cells with data and then i want to set the checkbox. Either directly or by calling an macro in excel.

Both ways dont work.

Please Help,


Binding A Checkbox Control
I am trying to programatically (sp?) bind the controls on my form to a virtual recordset that I am creating. When I run through each control on the form I do it in this way

..For Each ctl In Me.Controls
....With ctl
......If TypeOf ctl Is ComboBox Then
........BC.Add ctl, "Text", .Name, , .Name
......End If
......If TypeOf ctl Is CheckBox Then
........BC.Add ctl, "Value", .Name, , .Name
......End If
....End With
..Next ctl

the problem is that it errors out on the bc.add in the if for the checkbox and says that it is an invalid property value for the control. the field that it is binding to is a yes/no field in the database. What am I doing wrong. Everything else on the form binds correctly?????

How To Tell: If A Checkbox & A Control Array Then ... Else ...
I go through each of the controls on my form then check to see
if the control is a checkbox.
Then, I need to check if the checkbox control is part of a
control array. This is where I have run into problems.
Does anyone know how to check if a control is part of an array?

My Code:

For Each ctlTabControl In Me
If (TypeOf ctlTabControl Is CheckBox) Then
If (ctlTabControl.Value = vbChecked) Then
intFields = intFields + 1
If isNull(ctlTabControl.Index) Then 'ERROR!!!
mstrFields(intFields) = ctlTabControl.Name
'Irregular field names
Select Case (ctlTabControl.Index) 'ERROR!!!
Case 0: mstrFields(intFields) = "Phone#1"
Case 1: mstrFields(intFields) = "Phone#2"
Case 2: mstrFields(intFields) = "Fax#"
Case 3: mstrFields(intFields) = "[Base R]"
Case 4: mstrFields(intFields) = "[Base F]"
End Select
End If
End If
End If

Checkbox And Control Arrays
OK let me preface this by saying first yes I have looked everywhere I can possibly think and I can not find a suitable example hence my cry for help. Yes I am a student and unfortunately this quarter has been riddled with problems to hamper my learning. Mainly 2 instructors quitting within 6 weeks. Anyhow here is my problem, if you can help thank you in advance.

I am doing a project for school and I have a control array of checkboxes. I have to write code to loop through the array and have it determine if any item is checked. If not then create a message box stating to pick at least one. I get it all except if I dont pick any checkboxes then I get my msgbox, but even if I pick all the checkboxes I still get the msgbox asking to at least pick one checkbox. As i mentioned before I am not up to speed in this course so there may very well be some ridiculous things I am missing, matter of fact I guarantee it otherwise I can't imagine it being this hard. Here is the code I have so far:

Dim chkInterest(0 To 7) As Integer
For x = LBound(chkInterest) To UBound(chkInterest)
If x = False Then
MsgBox "pick one"
ElseIf x = True Then
Exit For
End If

I apologize for being so long winded and once again thank you in advance.

Making Visible A CheckBox Control
I am currently programming in VB6 SP6 and I am trying to make a checkbox control appear/disappear when a certain key is pressed (F11 for example). When the checkbox appears it can then be checked and if checked will remain visible and make a textbox visible.

I have tried putting code into the form_keypress event but that event is never triggered even when the F11 key is pressed.

I am not sure what to do or whrere to go.

Thanks for your time and effort in this.


CheckBox Control Array Problems
I have a form that has several control arrays of checkboxes contained inside frames. My problem comes in when I run the form and check the boxes. It seems that when I check a box, I get a check in the box as expected. When I check another box, the previous box goes to a grayed state. When I uncheck the box, the box is empty until I uncheck another box, then the grayed check state returns to the previously unchecked box.

On a related note, I need a method of clearing each of the checkboxes when a new record is selected. Is there an easy way to accomplish this with control arrays?

Adapting CheckBox Control For TouchScreen
    Currently I am working on creating a series of custom controls for use with TouchScreen Technology. I have been doing fairly well but I am not satisfied with what I have come up with for the CheckBox control. As it is, the CheckBox Control's Active area is much to small for the average person's finger, so I am working on making a larger CheckBox. The only idea I'm working off of here is to put and invisible CheckBox behind a larger image. Once the image is clicked it will activate the CheckBox and change the image (to either checked or unchecked). In other words I would be using the image as a front end and the CheckBox as a backend. This solution seems a little messy and I was just wondering if anyone else had any better ideas. They would really be appriciated!

How To Check If Null??? – VB6 Datepicker Control With Checkbox
The issue I’m having is I need to be able to remove the data from a listview previously choosen from a datepicker control by unchecking the checkbox in the datapicker. When the checkbox is unchecked the datapicker’s value is Null. So I wrote the following:
Private Sub dtpScheduledDate_Click()

Dim sScheduledDate

As String

Dim sSQL

As String

Dim x

x = dtpScheduledDate.Value

If x Is Null Then

sScheduledDate = "Null"

End If
End Sub
This is giving me the following error: Run-time error ‘424’ Object required
I have tried: “If x Is Nothing then….” , “If x = Null Then….”, and “If Not x is Null Then…” (to see if the reverse even worked) and they give either the same error or it completely skips the step when it should not.
I am probably missing something small here but can’t seem to put my finger on it.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

DataGrid Control CheckBox Show Problem...
Hi gurus,

Actually I'm facing a typical problem with the CheckBox in a DataGrid Control. I have created table which contains a boolean field.

Thanks again.
