Form formatting

P: n/a
Is there a way to have set formats within a form that the user can not change?
For example: the time is entered in the form control labeled “Time”. I would
like it so the user only enters numbers and doesn’t have to enter the colon.

The blank control would look like “00:00” then when the data is entered the
colon stays put and the only numbers change.

The time being entered is in military time.

Thanks

The blank textbox would look like “ : ” then when the data is entered the
colon stays put and the only numbers change.

Set your textbox's InputMask property to:

00:00;0;_
