You can find one more example of validation of a Combo Box in this online demo.Disclaimer: The information provided on Dev and its affiliated web properties is provided "as is" without warranty of any kind.Developer Express Inc disclaims all warranties, either express or implied, including the warranties of merchantability and fitness for a particular purpose.
I have a Combobox with it's 'Row Source' set to two columns x 1500 rows on a spreadsheet. When the user types in invalid text I get an "Invalid Value Property" error.
I would like to validate the Combobox so that the user cannot type text other than available in the list, or not allow for the focus to be taken away away unless the item is a match to the list.
At present due to the interaction of other controls on the userform, the only way to clear the error is by pressing the 'Escape key'.
If you are on a personal connection, like at home, you can run an anti-virus scan on your device to make sure it is not infected with malware.
If you are at an office or shared network, you can ask the network administrator to run a scan across the network looking for misconfigured or infected devices.
The combo box allows you to type in anything which causes validation problems.
How do I lock these dropdown values or how would I check it. Text Then set the focus to last index in the combo box.
