    ListBox value is Null

    Hi everyone!

    I hope you are well. I have a list box in my userform linked to a name range list. Usually the user scroll through the ListBox but does not actually select the item so, when the form transfer the data onto the sheet that cell remains empty.

    Is there a way to tell the ListBox to select the item displayed without clicking it? I have specified the "SelectSingle" behavior but it is still the same.


    Many thanks for your support!

    Sorry Vraag, I didn't get it ... I was thinking to use the KeyUp/KeyDown/KeyPress/Change private subs of the listbox for that, is it the correct approach?

    You'd better post a sample file. See the yellow banner on how to do that.

    Hi Vraag.

    I figured that out ... the listbox is as tall as a single line so when the user clicks on the arrows the item changes but does not actually get selected. I ended up adding this piece of code, in case the user scroll through using the Up/Down arrow keys, to increase the possibility to select an item in the list.

    This is how the listbox normally behaves; the alternative would be using a dropdown list (combobox) where you have to actually select the item to close the dropdown list.


    Many thanks
