Vb net validating close

31 Oct

I am using validating procedures to validate user input from 4 text boxes.

I am experiencing an issue using the 'x' button to close my form if invalid or no data is present in the textbox with focus when I click the 'x' button. You can change the data to something valid and close fine but this is aggrevating.

A name doesn't generally contain weird symbols, and definitely not numbers. This can be from the mouse clicking inside another field, or a Tab key being pressed to navigate to the next input control. ") Else Email Valid = True 'Email is Perfect End If Else 'Not A Match To Pattern Email Valid = False 'Set Boolean Variable To False Message Box. I hope you have learned from this article and that you have enjoyed it as much as I did.

That may seem like Captain Obvious speaking, but you'll be amazed at some of the data that gets entered into a name field. I then created an If statement to determine how the input data was formatted and whether or not the data is only alphabetic.

i have placed a button for cancel with causes validation to false and it also fires a validation.

Cancel = True End If End Sub Private Sub Text Box1_Validating(By Val sender As System.

After that I tested with bad data and the message box showed again, but when I closed it the form closed also. It's a homework assignment which is not due yet so I am reluctant to post my code in its entirety. Everything works great minus closing with any method other than the close button I created. Private Sub Form1_Form Closing(By Val sender As Object, By Val e As System.

Hi Everyone, In my form there is a "Validating" event on a textbox. Is there a way to not execute the "Validating" event when the user clicks on the "Cancel" button? End Sub Private Sub Button1_Mouse Leave(By Val sender As Object, By Val e As System. Mouse Leave b Validate Text Box = True '// Enable Validation. End Sub Private Sub Text Box1_Validating(By Val sender As Object, By Val e As System.

Sometimes people are just trying to be funny, or they are literally trying to break your program. If the data is indeed only alphabetic letters (no symbols, no numbers or any other punctuation characters) the test succeeds and stores True inside the Name Valid variable. This is because it becomes more legible than just a normal set of numbers.

You could say that a program's testers are supposed to do this; yes, they should - nobody else should. If not, if there is even just one unallowed character that is not supposed to be there, the Match method will return False. Instead of you having to loop through each character to determine what that character is, you simply need the correct Regular Expression pattern. Clear() Surname Valid = False Else Surname Valid = True End If End Sub It is basically the exact same code for the Name box, but I just included the capability to comprehend a space character as well. People expect to enter a phone number in a format similar to this: ###-###-####.

Then in the btn Cancel_click event, either set a module level variable like m Canceling to True and then in the validating event ... It doesn't need to be validated because the user is exiting. Length Yes, closing the form causes 'validating' to take place. Close() End Sub Private Sub Text Box1_Validating(By Val sender As Object, By Val e As System. I am going to start a new thread - calling it a bug and see what happens. Down (Down Arrow) and some how (and I never figured this one out) the next control in the tab order, regardless of the Tab Stop property, got focus. Cancel = True End If End If End Sub Hi Al, Nearly 40 years for me since my first college FORTRAN IV class! Well, one of the keys you would not see in either the keypress or keydown events is the tab key, which of course will move the focus.

Darin *** Sent via Developersdex Yes, closing the form causes 'validating' to take place. One, remove the "control Box" from the form, so the user cant close it that way. in the btn Cancel_Click event: Removehandeler Text Box1.validating, Addressof Text Box1_Validating -- Terry That doesn't work either, at least not for VB2005. -- Al Reid (who didn't mean to hijack the thread) "Terry" Well it works for me - but one thing I left out - you need to set the cancel buttons 'causes validation' to false. I reprogrammed the device to only send the CR and now the problem is solved. Validating If Not mbln Cancel Then Dim dte Date As Date Time If Date Time. Why it would stop on a textbox with tabstop property set to False - I have no idea, unless it is a behavior of the container its in. Maybe you should be using the Key Down event instead of the Key Press event. here is a line copied from the documentation: "The Key Press event is not raised by noncharacter keys; however, the noncharacter keys do raise the Key Down and Key Up events." My guess is that the gun is sending some noncharacter data to you.
