test string from textbox for alpha or numeric characters

vba 2010

userform textbox37

what i need:

I have a variable assigned to a userform textbox
cD =  Userform2.Textbox37.text

The textbox is being filled from an  activecell.value  on the sheet

I need to check  cD to test whether or not it contains alpha or numeric characters..

I'm picking up what appears to be  " "  FROM THE Sheet cell, but cant capture what it is...so trying to determine what it is NOT ?

I have tried   ISEMPTY
VBNULLSTRING

IF cD  = " "

none of these work ?

thanks

Try
 Userform2.Textbox37.Value

instead of .Text

Can you attach your workbook and describe the process you want to check?

here you go

create a userform and then add a text box and then click on view code of the userform and then paste this.   it will work. I tested it

Private Sub UserForm_Initialize()
    Dim ctl As Control
  Dim LC As Integer ' Loop counter
  Dim testText As String

    For Each ctl In Me.Controls
        If TypeName(ctl) = "TextBox" Then
         
   
   If Len(Me.TextBox1.Text) = 0 Then
     MsgBox "Box is empty"
     Exit Sub
   End If
   testText = Me.TextBox1.Text
   For LC = 1 To Len(testText)
     If Not IsNumeric(Mid(testText, LC, 1)) Then
       MsgBox "Entry is not entirely numeric."
       Exit Sub
     End If
   Next
   MsgBox "Entry is numeric."
        End If
    Next ctl
End Sub

Trim is the way to go:

From here:  http://microsoft.wikia.com/wiki/Microsoft_Office/VBA/General

this is a generic one
Function IsNullOrEmpty(val As Variant) As Boolean
   'First conditional validates for Nothing
   'Second condition validates for an Empty String situation "" or "     "
   Dim ret As Boolean: ret = False
   If IsMissing(val) Then
      ret = True
   ElseIf (val Is Nothing) Then
      ret = True
   ElseIf (val & vbNullString = vbNullString) Then
      ret = True
   ElseIf (Len(Trim(val)) <= 0) Then
      ret = True
   End If
 
   IsNullOrEmpty = ret
End Function

Open in new window


Usage:
if IsNullOrEmpty(UserForm2.TextBox37.value) then
MsgBox "No Item To Srearch On", vbCritical, "Null Search"
End If
