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:
