But when I use the following
Text5.SelStart = Len(Text5.Text)
Text5.SelText = "a is 10"

nl = vbNewline or Chr(13)

lb(i) = InStr(b, ls, nl, vbTextCompare)

Making A Textbox Scroll Down
i am making a game using winsock.
when the players chat, i add the message to the bottom of a text box.
when the text is added, the text box does not scroll to the bottom, after a few lines, to see the message, u must scroll down yourself.

how can i make the textbox always stay scrolled to the bottom?


Making TextBox Visible
In one of my applications I have a frame that contains 2 textboxes.
As this frame is added at runtime I have placed one on a form at design time and set the visible propertie to false. When I want to add a frame at runtime run the following code.

'start a count tracking the array element
ArrayCount = ArrayCount + 1

'load the 3 objects of the sticky note
Load frmborder.Frame(ArrayCount)
Load frmborder.Title(ArrayCount)
Load frmborder.Text(ArrayCount)

'sets the sticky note objects to equal that entered
frmborder.Title(ArrayCount).Text = frmkeyboard.txttitle.Text 'Title
frmborder.Text(ArrayCount).Text = frmkeyboard.txttext.Text 'Text

'make the objects visible
frmborder.Title(ArrayCount).Visible = True
frmborder.Text(ArrayCount).Visible = True
frmborder.Frame(ArrayCount).Visible = True

This does add the frame and the textboxes but it only sets the frame to visible, leaving both the Title and Text textboxes invisble.

Does anyone have any ideas on why this is happening and how I can get roung this.

Thanks P

Making A New Line In Textbox

I try to make a new line (line feed & carriage return) in a textbox, but it appears as a black box. I have enabled mulilines for my textbox. How do I solve this relative simple problem??

Here is some code that might explain my problem even more (text1 is a textbox):

Dim line1 as string
Dim line2 as string

line1 = "this is line 1"
line2 = "...and this is line 2"

text1.text = line1 & chr(10) & chr(13) & line2

When I do this 2 black boxes appears between the text from line1 and line2. I have tried to use only one of LF & CR, but it doesn't matter...

Please help!!

Making Textbox Disappear

I've got a textbox, which, by default (on Page_Load) is not visible. When the user clicks on the word "logoff" the password box becomes visible. This is done simply by the following:

VB Code:
If txtPwrd.Visible = False ThentxtPwrd.Visible = TrueElse:txtPwrd.Visible = FalseEnd If

The point of this is the following. This is a CUSTOMER (not an employee) lookup screen. To prevent customer's from bailing out of the program and just peeking around the computer, I've locked the form (and disabled maximize,minimize, and close).

The only way for this form to close, is via a LOGOFF password which the employees will have.

My question is:
How can I have the textbox "disappear" again, if nothing is entered in, say, five seconds.

I'm guessing a timer, but I've never used these before, and I'm not sure where in my code I'd want to place it.

Any ideas?


Making Rich TextBox???
I am currently using a multi-line text box, but I would like to enhance the look a little bit. Could someone tell me how I go about making a rich textbox.


Making All Characters Except &#039;0&#039; Appear In Textbox
I have a form with an array of textboxes. A different number, between -12 and 12, loads into the textboxes at random when the form loads.

I use this code:

Private Sub Form_Load()
Randomize Timer
Text5(0).Text = Int((10 + 13) * Rnd - 10)
Text5(1).Text = Int((10 + 13) * Rnd - 10)
Text5(2).Text = Int((10 + 13) * Rnd - 10)
Text5(3).Text = Int((10 + 13) * Rnd - 10)
Text5(4).Text = Int((10 + 13) * Rnd - 10)
Text5(5).Text = Int((10 + 13) * Rnd - 10)
Text5(6).Text = Int((10 + 13) * Rnd - 10)
Text5(7).Text = Int((10 + 13) * Rnd - 10)
For X = 0 To 7
If Rnd > 0.5 Then
Text5(X).Text = "+" & Int(Rnd * 12)
End If
Next X

I want to have it so that '0' doesn't appear in the textboxes - if it happens to come up at random. I thought that placing the code below, between the 'End If' and 'Next X' above, would do it. but it doesn't:

If Val(Text5(index).Text) = 0 Then
Text5(index).Text = "3"
End If

Could someone please tell me how I can do it?

Making Textbox So User Can't Highlight Text
Is there a way to make a multiline textbox so the user can't highlight the text? I tried using the enable property but when I set the enabled property to false, the control will not allow the user to scroll down to other lines in the textbox.

The reason I'm doing this is so I can just use one textbox control to display and edit information instead of using a label to display and a textbox to edit.

Making A Textbox Grow Vertically , Automatically

I am trying to get a multiline textbox to automatically expand vertically when it can no longer contain any more text (a la th 'To' line in Outlook)

Any ideas gratefully appreciated...

Making A Textbox Scroll To The Bottom On Every Update
Hi my name is Will and I am having a problem with a rich text box in my program. You see, I am working on an encryption and then I want to decrypt the text and put it into a text box. But the text can be larger than the text box so I have scroll bars. But every time I want the user to be able to update it, the text box starts from the top and they have to keep scrolling down and that can get very boring after a while. So what I need is to be able to make the text box scroll all the way to the bottom when it has a changed event. A good analagy would be AOL's IM's. They always scroll to the bottom when someone sends a message. Thank you for your help. It will be greatly appreciated!


Need Asst. On Making TextBox Behavior More Like Forms 2.0 Controls
Two things I desire: world peace and a VB textbox that behaves like the textbox used in VBA for MS Access. I'm hoping at least one of these is practical.

What I'd like to mimic is this...

When a user tabs into the textbox, select all of the text within the box BUT do not scroll the textbox to the end of the string. I've been able to select all the text using SelStart = 0 and SelLength = Len(Str$) but that actually moves the cursor to the end of the string and on lengthy MultiLine fields can totally confuse the users as to where they are. I also tried Sendkeys {END}+{HOME} but this is interrupted by return carrier characters so it fails on MultiLines.

When a user single clicks on the field using the mouse, simply place the cursor at the location they clicked on. Make no attempt to select any portion of the string.

When a user double clicks on the field, use existing behavior.

Any help on this would be greatly appreciated.


Making Textbox Text Bold During Runtime While Transfering To Datareport
I have text box in form and datareport and
my scenario is,

Trying To Get A Newline
I am using the shellexecute method to get the default mail client to open up a new message window. I've included the "TO" field, the "Subject" field, and the "body" field.

However, there's a problem with the body field. I can't get vbCrLf or chr(13) to work in it. Here's my code:

VB Code:
strbody = "Hi" & Chr(13) & "The library records show that you have issued the book number " & bookid & "." & Chr(13) & "I am in need of this book, so I request you to return it to the Library." & Chr(13) & Chr(13) & "Regards, " & Chr(13) & m_myuserid & Chr(13) strbookaction = "mailto:" & objrs.Fields(0).Value & "?subject=Request for Book&body=" & strbody ShellExecute hwnd, vbNullString, strbookaction, vbNullString, "C:", SW_SHOWNORMAL

Any suggestions?
