Typing error monitor

G'day,
The basics:
I want to spell out a string (say "myword") with
for t = 1 to Len(myword)
 Letter = mid(myword,t,1)

I now want to compare this Letter with a character typed in a TextBox and if correct move on to character 2 and so on and type the whole word.
How can I do this please?
Thank you,   Dan

Hi,

Try like following...


Dim strtocompare As String

Private Sub Form_Load()
strtocompare = "myword"
End Sub

Private Sub Text1_Change()
'check each character
If StrComp(Text1.Text, Mid(strtocompare, 1, Len(Text1.Text))) = 0 Then
    Debug.Print "right"
Else
    Debug.Print "wrong"
    'replace previous characters if any
    If Len(Text1.Text) = 1 Then
        Text1.Text = ""
    ElseIf Len(Text1.Text) > 1 Then
        Text1.Text = Mid(Text1.Text, 1, Len(Text1.Text) - 1)
    End If
End If
End Sub

Try this,

I just developed for you, it is working for me. If it does not work for you, tell me i will mail you the project.

My email id is n_narayanan@yahoo.com

Option Explicit
Dim OrigMsg As String
Dim cnt As Integer
Private Sub Form_Load()
cnt = 1
OrigMsg = "myword"
End Sub

Private Sub Text1_KeyPress(KeyAscii As Integer)
If KeyAscii = 8 Then 'backspace
    cnt = cnt - 1
    If cnt < 0 Then
        cnt = 1
    End If
    Exit Sub
End If

If Mid(OrigMsg, cnt, 1) = Chr(KeyAscii) Then
cnt = cnt + 1
    Exit Sub
Else
    KeyAscii = 0
    Exit Sub
End If

End Sub


Cheers

hiranmaya ->  Please use comments as the other experts before you have done here.  The person asking the question can always convert the first best response comment to the accepted answer to grade and close it.  By Proposing an Answer as you have done here, it moved this question from the Open Question queue to the Locked Question queue, and few additional experts will step in to help; so a disservice to the Asker who seeks expeditious solutions and seeks more than one possibility.

More about that here:

Hi,
Both hiranmaya and narayanan have solved my question.
I am inclined to favour narayanan's answer but have no reason to reject hiranmaya's and therefore accept it.
I am posing a more general question related to this question.
Thank you both hiranmaya and narayanan for your input

You are right moondancer, under the circumstances I should have split the points.
I wish to make amends by granting Naraynan 100 points also.
Thanks Narayanan.
Cheers,      Dan
