    Resolved [RESOLVED] Detect words in a listbox (Resolved)

    Hi,

    I am trying to detect words that are in a listbox by typing a word in a textbox then click if the word is in the box.

    VB Code:
    1. Private Sub Command1_Click()
    2. For b = 0 To frmSetup.Lstblock.ListCount
    3. If Text1.Text = frmSetup.Lstblock.List(b) Then
    4. MsgBox ("Word is not allowed")
    5. Else
    6. If Not Text1.Text = Text1.Text & frmSetup.Lstblock.List(b) Then
    7. Exit Sub
    8. End If
    9. End If
    10. Next b
    11. frmSetup.Show
    12. End Sub

    This code works only when I type in the word that is the first word listed in the listbox. How can I make in so it checks for all the wors typed into the listbox?

    you can either use InStr or the Like operator :

    VB Code:
    1. Option Explicit
    2.  
    3. Private Sub Command1_Click()
    4.     Dim i As Integer
    5.     For i = 0 To List1.ListCount - 1
    6.         If UCase(List1.List(i)) Like UCase("*" & Text1.Text & "*") Then List1.ListIndex = i
    7.     Next i
    8. End Sub
    9.  
    10. Private Sub Form_Load()
    11.     With List1
    12.     .Clear
    13.     .AddItem "CPU"
    14.     .AddItem "RAM"
    15.     .AddItem "ROM"
    16.     .AddItem "Cache"
    17.     .AddItem "Motherboard"
    18.     .AddItem "Hard Disk"
    19.     .AddItem "Floppy Disk"
    20.     End With
    21. End Sub

    20.     End With
    21. End Sub
    Thanx it works but it shows the msgbox I am using even if you just enter the letters that are in the listbox. How can I stop this so you can enter those letters without the msgbox appearing? I also want to know how I can stop it from happening when the user empties the textbox?

    Below is how I am using the code:

    VB Code:
    1. Private Sub txtSay_Change()
    2.  Dim i As Integer
    3.     For i = 0 To frmSetup.Lstblock.ListCount - 1
    4.         If UCase(frmSetup.Lstblock.List(i)) Like UCase("*" & txtSay.Text & "*") Or LCase(frmSetup.Lstblock.List(i)) Like LCase("*" & txtSay.Text & "*") Then
    5.         MsgBox ("This word is not allowed")
    6.     End If
    7.     Next i
    8. End Sub
    when you quote a post could you please do it via the "Reply With Quote" button or if it multiple post click the "''+" button then "Reply With Quote" button.
    If this thread is finished with please mark it "Resolved" by selecting "Mark thread resolved" from the "Thread tools" drop-down menu.

    it all depends on how you want it to work ...

    you want the search to be done when the user click a button, hit enter or something else ??



    in order to not do a search when the textbox is empty, you have to check the content of the textbox

    if txtSay.text = "" then exit sub

    Peet,

    I want the program to tell me if a word that has been banned, if then word has been entered into the textbox. I am trying to make it check when I type in the textbox.

    I have changed this code of your by putting "a" instead of "i" but now it wont work.

    VB Code:
    1. Dim a As Integer
    2.  For a = 0 To frmSetup.Lstblock.ListCount - 1
    3.         If txtSay.Text = "" Then
    4.         Exit Sub
    5.         Else:
    6.         If UCase(frmSetup.Lstblock.List(i)) Like UCase("*" & txtSay.Text & "*") Then
    7.         MsgBox ("This word is not allowed")
    8.     End If
    9.     End If
    10.     Next a

    I actually put public "a" as integer in a module but is of in the form code but it still didn't work.
    when you quote a post could you please do it via the "Reply With Quote" button or if it multiple post click the "''+" button then "Reply With Quote" button.

    Hi again NW,
    you have made a couple of mistakes... first you do not use option explicit. I think that would have found the first problem. You use i instead of a in this line

    VB Code:
    1. If UCase(frmSetup.Lstblock.List(i)) Like UCase("*" & txtSay.Text & "*") Then

    it should have been


    VB Code:
    1. If UCase(frmSetup.Lstblock.List(a)) Like UCase("*" & txtSay.Text & "*") Then

    I would do something like this:

    VB Code:
    1. Private Sub txtSay_Change()
    2.     Dim a As Integer
    3.    
    4.     'any data at all ? if not exit
    5.     If txtSay.Text = "" Then
    6.         Lstblock.ListIndex = -1
    7.         Exit Sub
    8.     End If
    9.    
    10.     'check to see if there is data in the listbox that matches txtSay
    11.     For a = 0 To frmSetup.Lstblock.ListCount - 1
    12.         If UCase(frmSetup.Lstblock.List(a)) Like UCase("*" & txtSay.Text & "*") Then
    13.             'found one that match current crit.
    14.             'select it in the listbox, and then exit the loop
    15.             Lstblock.ListIndex = a
    16.             Exit For
    17.         Else
    18.             Lstblock.ListIndex = -1
    19.         End If
    20.     Next a
    21. End Sub

    a msgbox is no good in this case, because of the event you use.
    hope this is what you are looking for

    Peet,

    I was actually hoping that I could get it so I could enter the whole word before the msgbox appears. Is this possible?

    I am only using the msgbox for testing my app.

    how do you know when an entire word is added to the text box?

    if you can answer that, think you will find the solution

    I would suggest moving the routine from the changeevent to keyupevent and check to see if the keypressed = enterkey. If so, do a search.

    or move it to lost focus.

    how do you want it to be?

    I was think about checking a string is that possible? I am really wanting that code to detect the words that are been passed to it from the other chat app.

    Evening NightWalker,

    Can you 'trap' the unwanted word(s) before there loaded
    into the TextBox?

    • Please pull down the Thread Tools menu and click the 'Mark Thread Resolved' button, or alternately edit your original post and add "Resolved" or place a in the subject when your question(s) have been answered.
    • Please use code tags [highlight=vb] your code goes here between the tags [/highlight] when posting code.

    How about just doing a relpace on the textbox string with each of the listbox entries once the user is finished typing?
    Quotes:
    "I am getting better then you guys.." NoteMe, on his leet english skills.
    "And I am going to meat her again later on tonight." NoteMe
    "I think you should change your name to QuoteMe" Shaggy Hiker, regarding NoteMe
    "my sweet lord jesus. I've decided never to have breast implants" Tom Gibbons
    Have I helped you? Please Rate my posts.

    Maybe Split the incomming String into and Array at the " " (prior to being placed into a Display TextBox).

    eg. arr = Split(sInputBuff, " ")

    Then run the arr data against the ListBox, and at a 'match' replace
    that array element with "****", then use:

    eg. TextBoxDisplay = Join(arr, " ")

    Well.... first; confirm what the incomming text is in. ie is the
    chat text received in you app via a String?
    Which is then placed into a TextBox?

    This is an example of what I mean. Place a ListBox on a Form.
    Assume the String Buffer sInputBuff is the incomming Text:
    VB Code:
    1. Option Explicit
    2.  
    3. Private Sub Form_Load()
    4. Dim sInputArr() As String
    5. Dim sInputBuff As String: sInputBuff = "This is a test to see if it works"
    6. Dim i As Integer
    7. Dim x As Integer
    8.  
    9.    'Add some of the unwanted words to a ListBox
    10.    With List1
    11.       .AddItem "Badword1"
    12.       .AddItem "Badword2"
    13.       .AddItem "test"
    14.       .AddItem "Badword4"
    15.    End With
    16.    
    17.    'Split up the String into the Array
    18.    If InStr(sInputBuff, " ") Then   'More than 1 word, so split
    19.       sInputArr = Split(sInputBuff, " ")
    20.    Else
    21.       ReDim sInputArr(0)   'Only 1 word, so place it in the Array
    22.       sInputArr(0) = sInputBuff
    23.    End If
    24.    
    25.    For x = 0 To UBound(sInputArr)
    26.       For i = 0 To List1.ListCount - 1
    27.          If LCase(List1.List(i)) = LCase(sInputArr(x)) Then sInputArr(x) = "*****"
    28.       Next
    29.    Next
    30.    
    31.    MsgBox Join(sInputArr) 'Join this in a TextBox
    32.  
    33. End Sub

    VB Code:
    1. Dim sInputBuff As String: sInputBuff = mess 'mess being the string that was sent minus the instr part.

    Is that right? When I use the code from my previous post:

    VB Code:
    1. Dim sInputBuff As String: sInputBuff = "This is a test to see if it works"

    The only thing that appears it the other client window after the data is sent is what you put for sIntputBuff that is without the ****.

    No, No, No

    I set sInputBuff to that string to demonstrate how it may work.

    You need to place the message text in there!

    Does that make sense.

    Yes but when I put:

    VB Code:
    1. Dim sInputBuff As String: sInputBuff = mess 'mess being the string that was sent minus the instr part.

    The other client main window is empty when I send a message.

    OR

    do you mean:

    VB Code:
    1. Dim sInputBuff As String: sInputBuff = txtmess.text

    Aaron,

    From you last post it would seem that you inadvertantly re-assigned the txtMess Box (if you did it the way u mentioned). Try this:

    Please note where I cut your code so u can put it back in the right spoy

    VB Code:
    1. [b]sInputBuff = mess    'Load the string buffer with the INCOMMING message (wich may contain swear words!)[/b]
    2. End If
    3. 'check to see if there is data in the listbox that matches the message string
    4.    'Split up the String into the Array
    5.    If InStr(sInputBuff, " ") Then   'More than 1 word, so split
    6.       sInputArr = Split(sInputBuff, " ")
    7.    Else
    8.       ReDim sInputArr(0)   'Only 1 word, so place it in the Array
    9.       sInputArr(0) = sInputBuff
    10.    End If
    11.    
    12.    For X = 0 To UBound(sInputArr)
    13.       For a = 0 To frmSetup.Lstblock.ListCount - 1
    14.          If UCase(frmSetup.Lstblock.List(a)) = UCase(sInputArr(X)) Then sInputArr(X) = "*****"
    15.       Next
    16.    Next
    17.    
    18.    [b]txtMess.Text = Join(sInputArr)  'Write out to the TextBox the 'corrected' message text. ie hashed out the swear words.[/b]
    19.    [b]txtMess.SelStart = Len(mess)[/b]
    20.    [b]txtMess.SetFocus[/b] 'I also added this.
    21.  
    22. End Sub

    Thanx it worked but I am still having trouble if there is only one word being sent. I was wondering if a could get the number of * characters to match the word being blocked number of chacters?

    Hmmm,

    That was one of the tests I checked. Note how I commented the code
    to place a series of words, or one word into the Array......

    And I was going to assign the number of "*" to the lenght of each
    word... but I ran outa time ... - You give it ago, youll figure it out.

    I tried the REPLACE function but I couldn't figure out how to make the number of "*" to equal the len of the word.

    Use the String Function; like:
    VB Code:
    1. If LCase(List1.List(i)) = LCase(sInputArr(x)) Then sInputArr(x) = [b]String(Len(List1.List(i)), "*")[/b]

    Bruce,

    I am using this code to replace the words:

    VB Code:
    1. If InStr(sInputBuff, " ") Then   'More than 1 word, so split
    2.       sInputArr = Split(sInputBuff, " ")
    3.    Else
    4.       ReDim sInputArr(0)   'Only 1 word, so place it in the Array
    5.       sInputArr(0) = sInputBuff
    6.    End If
    7.    For x = 0 To UBound(sInputArr)
    8.       For a = 0 To frmSetup.Lstblock.ListCount
    9.          If UCase(frmSetup.Lstblock.List(a)) = UCase(sInputArr(x)) Then sInputArr(x) = String(Len(frmSetup.Lstblock.List(a)), "*")
    10.  
    11.       Next a
    12.    Next x
    13.    
    14.    txtMess.Text = Join(sInputArr)  'Write out to the TextBox the 'corrected' message text. ie hashed out the swear words.
    15.    txtMess.SelStart = Len(mess)
    16. End Sub

    I am have trouble because if I have one word or even two words in the listbox it works. If I have three or more words it the listbox it will not hash out all the words in the listbox. The program changes the words being hashed out each time which I don't want. I want all the words in the listbox to be hashed out.

    Could you please help me solve this problem.

    Thanx

    Aaron

    I have just about had it with this stupid thing. The code works fine in a test program I have made but it will not work in my chat app.

    VB Code:
    1. Private Sub Winsock1_DataArrival(Index As Integer, ByVal bytesTotal As Long)
    2. Winsock1(intmax).GetData str
    3. If InStr(1, str, "|END|") <> 0 Then
    4. End
    5. End If
    6. Dim sInputArr() As String
    7. Dim sInputBuff As String
    8. 'Get the message string
    9. If InStr(1, str, "|MESSAGE|") <> 0 Then
    10.  mess = Mid$(str, 10, Len(str))
    11. sInputBuff = mess    'Load the string buffer with the INCOMMING message (wich may contain swear words!)
    12. End If
    13. 'Check to see if there is data in the listbox that matches the message string
    14.    'Split up the String into the Array
    15.    If InStr(sInputBuff, " ") Then   'More than 1 word, so split
    16.       sInputArr = Split(sInputBuff, " ")
    17.    Else
    18.       ReDim sInputArr(0)   'Only 1 word, so place it in the Array
    19.       sInputArr(0) = sInputBuff
    20.    End If
    21.  
    22.    For x = 0 To UBound(sInputArr)
    23.       For a = 0 To frmSetup.Lstblock.ListCount - 1
    24.          If UCase(frmSetup.Lstblock.List(a)) = UCase(sInputArr(x)) Then sInputArr(x) = String(Len(frmSetup.Lstblock.List(a)), "*")
    25.      Next a
    26.       Next x
    27.       txtmess.Text = txtmess.Text & Join(sInputArr, " ")   'Write out to the TextBox the 'corrected' message text. ie hashed out the swear words.
    28.    txtmess.SelStart = Len(txtmess.Text)

    try this

    What you first posted has an error I think
    Try this...May be this is the thing you are looking for


    For b = 0 To frmSetup.LstBlock.ListCount
    If Text1.Text = frmSetup.LstBlock.List(b) Then
    MsgBox ("Word is not allowed")
    Else
    If Text1.Text = "" or frmSetup.LstBlock.listcount=0 Then
    Exit Sub
    End If
    End If
    Next b
    frmSetup.Show
    End Sub

    Aaron,

    I unzipped both apps, and it ran fine!

    I was able to type a string like : "this is a test" in the
    Clien TYextBox, and the message appeared like "this is a ****"
    in the Server end????

    It worked great! whats it not doing your end?


    (I had to add the WindSock Component)

    I can get the client/sever demo to work except when I copy and paste the code in to my chat app it doesn't work properly.

    Use Split Command to split the words then check them


    Array = split(String," ")
    If you dribble then you are as mad as me

    Thanx Bruce

    VB Code:
    1. 'Check to see if there is data in the listbox that matches the message string
    2.   'Split up the String into the Array
    3.  
    4.   sInputBuff = Replace(sInputBuff, "Aaron Says:", "")
    5.  
    6.   If InStr(sInputBuff, " ") > 0 Then   'More than 1 word, so split
    7.      sInputArr = Split(sInputBuff, " ")
    8.   Else
    9.      ReDim sInputArr(0)   'Only 1 word, so place it in the Array
    10.      sInputArr(0) = sInputBuff
    11.   End If
    12.  
    13.   For x = 0 To UBound(sInputArr)
    14.      For a = 0 To frmSetup.Lstblock.ListCount - 1
    15.         'The following line removes vbCrLf from the array
    16.         sInputArr(x) = Replace(sInputArr(x), vbCrLf, "")
    17.         If UCase(frmSetup.Lstblock.List(a)) = UCase(sInputArr(x)) Then sInputArr(x) = String(Len(frmSetup.Lstblock.List(a)), "*")
    18.      Next a
    19.   Next x
    20.  
    21.   txtMess.Text = txtMess.Text & Join(sInputArr, " ") & vbCrLf 'Write out to the TextBox the 'corrected' message text. ie hashed out the swear words.
    22.   txtMess.SelStart = Len(txtMess.Text)
    23.  
    24. End Sub

    WoooHooooo ,

    Baring the other minor 'bugs' (and future tweeking) its comming
    along well


    And.... If you use Option Explicit (at the top of each Forms code),
    you'll will find all the un-assigend variables too (you may want to
    keep that for another day tho ).
