vrf Text box / Excel

Question asked by reiner.schlieker on Mar 30, 2003
I've run into the same problem recently.  You can either use the ShowPanel()
function to "refresh" the focus on the text box, or use a dialog box which
will halt the program until you type something in (though you can have it
time out).

I am not sure. The Text box has a flashing black section on the left hand
side but will not accept the keyboard input until a mouse click is done
within the text box field input. I suspect it is something to do with the
Active X commands given to open the Excel file and then minimize it.

I will try to 'strip' out an example to post.

Thanks for your help,
Ashley



Ashley,

Is the text box not active because VEE is not the focused application, or is
it not active because the focus within VEE is set to something other than
the box you want? These are 2 different conditions.

Thanks,

Subject: [vrf] Excel minimised, text box request


Hi,

I am using Excel to store parameters for a test rig. I am opening up an
Excel file using active X and then minimising it. The next part of the
program requests a text input (or barcode wedge input) but the text box is
not active until the mouse is clicked on the input field. How can I prevent
this so that the operator does not have to click in the text box, and just
types the requested data?

Best regards,

Ashley Derrick
