vba OnChange using if me.text0 ...onchange...then

vba OnChange using if me.text0 ...onchange...then

(OP)
hi, trying to use the Onchange in a vba statement but haven't been able to figure it out. I also search but couldn't find the solution. essentially, here's what i'd like to achieve:

if me.text0.onchange = true then

do this..

else

do that

end if


thanks
Martin

RE: vba OnChange using if me.text0 ...onchange...then

That is not how you use event properties. I also do not think the on change event is likely what you want. Watch this video about programming with event procedures.

My guess you my want to check the controls after update or before update event, not likely the change event. That fires on each keystroke.

MJD1,
You should tell us what you want to accomplish. Something like "when a user presses a key while in a text box name Text0, I want to test the value of .... and do ...."
