How to format text and combo controls for Telephone and Zip code and other needs?

Hi all. I need to format my text box's and combo box's with Telephone (###)
###-#### and Postal Code #####-#### or other custom formating, how do I do
this? I tried to go into Properties, Databindings, Advanced and to use the
Custom but it didn't work to well. To clarify: it placed (###) ###-#### in
my Telephone field but didn't guide my user or format the number after
entering data, so it was pretty useless. Obviously I didn't do it correctly.
Any suggestions on how to enter a Custom format?

Regards,

Robert
