Hi,

 1. On gotfocus for selecting text write following code.


 Private Sub Text1_GotFocus()

    Text1.SelStart = 0
    Text1.SelLength = Len(Text1.Text)
   
 End Sub


2. For caps

Private Sub Text1_KeyPress(KeyAscii As Integer)

    If KeyAscii >= 97 And KeyAscii <= 122 Then KeyAscii = KeyAscii - 32
   
End Sub

Oops, Private Sub Text1_Click() should be: Private Sub Text1_GotFocus()

Grade changed; comment (as corrected) is accurate, simple and works.

pak_slm,

A simple answer is usually the best answer. Please do not grade based on the number of characters typed into a response, but rather on whether or not you understand it and use it.
