Hi HIKER,

use something like

if lcase(text1.text) ="red"then text2.backcolor= vbred

Try this:

If UCase$(Text1.Text) = "RED" Then Text2.BackColor= VBRed

That way, whatever the case typed in will be converted to uppercase before the "IF" comparison.

Hi, all

Use StrComp with compare set to vbTextCompare:
   If StrComp(text1.text, "red", vbTextCompare) = 0 then
        ' strings are the same

or just add this line to declarations section:

Option Compare Text
0
What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Or intercept the keystrokes and force them to either upper or lower case in the KeyPress event or the Change event.  If you don't want the actual etxt to appear in upper/lower case, you could also transfer the upper/lower-cased version into either the tag property or a separate module-level variable.

It all depends on where you prefer to do the bulk of your overhead: on entry (as with my idea), or in the processing portion (as with the previous comments.)
