I dont know if that's possible, Why dont you use a Form as an input box?

Anyway, ill keep subscribed here in case someone else knows.

Pretty sure there's no easy way to customise InputBox. (I assume it's possible if you were to dig deeply enough into Windows, but who wants to go there).

In my opinion no "real" code should be using the InputBox function, anyway. This should be used only during development/debugging to quickly prompt the developer for a required piece of information.

Create a form to prompt your user for input. This gives you control over pretty much everything that happens.

See....i am using Inputbox becoz there are 7 listboxes where i need to take input for two list boxes and then depending upon those values have to fill the other ones. And becoz list boxes cannot take input as text boxes i m using inputbox. Is there any other way to input information into the list boxes (other than Input box)?? (and i m using list boxes becoz there are list of items else nothing could have been better than text box)

Hi,

Use a ComboBox, it Allows user to write the data into it, and In LostFocus Event Check/Search for the Item..
Or else, use a Customized Form in a Modal Form as Input box..
