Does VB.net 2003 have input masks that you can set for controls like
Microsoft Access has? I know VB6 didn't.

Thanks,
TD

No. VB.NET 2003 doesn't offer masked textboxes. Visual Basic 2005 will offer
this.

Until Visual Basic 2005 is released there are custom controls:

Sorry,

this was not very precise.

It has nothing to do with VB.NET, it is the lack of support in the
Windows.Forms-Controls.

VB 6 did. "Microsoft Masked Edit Control 6.0" - MSMask32.OCX

Actually, after searching MSDN, the only thing I could find was that.
And even then, it was listed under Visual Basic .Net reference for
legacy controls....

If you set the "PasswrodChar" Property of a text box to "*" - then it will
work

You may have a look at www.componentone.com. They have many controls for
ActiveX and .NET. (e.g. Studio Enterprise for .NET) which include masked
input boxes.
