Hiya evry1! rite i have a form in visual basics that i want to protect using a login thingie! i have 3 codes that work fine together:
Public declorations:

Dim x As String
Dim y As String
Dim loginsucceeded As Boolean

Cancel button:

Private Sub CommandButton1_Click()
If MsgBox(" Are you sure you want to cancel log in?", vbYesNo) = vbYes Then
End
End If
End Sub

and the login section:

Private Sub CommandButton2_Click()
x = "user"
y = "admin"
If txtpassword = y And txtusername = y Then
FRMwk1.Show
loginsucceeded = True
Unload Me
Else
If txtpassword = x And txtusername = x Then
FRMwk1.Show
loginsucceeded = True
Unload Me
Else
If loginsucceeded = False Then
MsgBox ("Please enter correct name and password")
End If
End If
End If
End Sub

This all works fine till i want to put in a password and username! :oops: where in the code can i tell VB what the password and username is and when i type it in how can i get it to show "******" instead of the letters??
:rolleyes:

Make a textbox on the userform. Look in the properties window for the PasswordChar field. Put a "*" in there with no quotes or whatever symbol you want to use.

Then try something like this

Dim MyPassword as String

MyPassword = "Admin123"


Then later on after the input say

If TextBox1.Value = MyPassword then

msgbox("Access Granted")

else

msgbox("Access Denied")

end if

Blaze, DRJ speaks the truth. Let's go through it:

You have a userform with 2 textboxes and 2 commandbuttons?

The textboxes are named: txtpassword and txtusername?

The commandbuttons are named: CommandButton1 and CommandButton2?

You have masked each textbox using DRJ's advice above?

The way your code is written you need to either type "user" or "admin" in both textboxes to gain access.

Did you put the code supplied by DRJ in the txtpassword_change procedure??

if so then you need to move it to on of the command buttons (The one you have to press to login)
