Hi All

Is there a way that I can automactically select the contents of a text box. On a button I set the focus to a particular textbox on a userform, but instead on just placing the cursor in the textbox I would like to highlight the contents of the textbox.

Kindest Regards

Peter

How to create a cell-sized chart?
Tiny charts, called Sparklines, were added to Excel 2010. Look for Sparklines on the Insert tab.

This works - but there might be a better way :-

'-------------------------------------
Private Sub UserForm_Initialize()
TextBox1.Text = "xxx"
TextBox1.SelStart = 0
TextBox1.SelLength = Len(TextBox1.Text)
End Sub
'---------------------------------------
