Problems with the Masked Edit Control

Hi all,

I can't clear a Masked edit control. I use it to input dates, so I have
defined the mask as "##/##/####". I use the the well known
meb.mask=""
meb.text="" ,
but nothing happens.
Does anybody have a clue, why these lines don' t work? I use vb.net 2002

Thank u

Are you using VB6's Masked Edit control or another masked edit control?

I think it's VB6's control, because in the customize toolbox menu, I choose
it from the COM components tab.
Is there a .NET version of masked edit control that i don' t know about, or
should i make my own?

..NET 2.0 will contain a masked edit control.

In some situation using an ErrorProvider to make the user aware of malformed
input can be more appropriate:

Validator Controls for Windows Forms

Hi, I need to use a Masked Edit Control in my ASPX page. In VS.Net, I added the reference to MSMask.dll for my application & also added the MaskEdBox to the Toolbox. After adding the control to the web form, when I select the control & see its properties, I do not see the "Text" property. I also try to set the "Text" property in a javascript function, but cannot access it. Here is the code:

Anybody could give me hint how use this control in asp.net web form. The problem is: I try to use COM component in my web form app by using MS training kit for windows form application. I would like to do the similar thing. The guide asks me to add Masked Edit Control to the Toolbox by adding Microsoft Masked Edit Control and I did it. However, there is no Mask property of this edit control box. Another is how declare this control.

Curently I manualy code keypress edits. i.e. allow only 3 digits before decimal and two digits after decimal in .NET. Is there an easy solution to mask text boxes? The MSMASK32.OCX from vb6 does not seem to be appropriate for a desktop application with textboxes not bound to a dataset, am I wrong? -- How time fly's when you don't know what you are doing!

I have unformatted text in my SQL 2005 database. I'm pulling it into a masked edit text box with a (999)999-9999 mask. Unfortunately, when I attempt to save the data back it doesn't work because I don't know how to get the 'masked' information back to the 'unmasked' raw data that the database wants.

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
