Sequence of events in Userforms

In a previous post I wrote about the sequence of events in workbooks. This post is about the sequence of events in a simple userform. To built a reliable userform you need to know something about the userform mysteries.

A few notes on MSForms 2.0

Userforms and userform controls are not part of the Excel Object Model but have their own package. In this article some general notes on the MSForms library.

Debug and trace in VBA

Often when you debug your Excel app you want to monitor execution. Unfortunately the VBE has no built in trace tools. In this post I describe a simple but effective trace utility.

A true click event on worksheets

The worksheet object has a doubleclick and a rightclick event but strangely no click event. Instead, the worksheet has the SelectionChange event. Unfortunately this event won’t fire if we click the ActiveCell again. In this article I will show how to implement a true click event in a worksheet.

Disable Shift key on open

A user can prevent the Workbook_Open event from firing by holding down the Shift key during startup. Since Excel 2007 it is possible to ignore this, and run your code anyway.
