    I'm sorry but I have no experience with Vista. Perhaps you should create a new thread in the Visual Basic 6 and Earlier forum.

    Sorry. My mistake. I had the incorrect .ocx version registered on the vista computer.

    Found a bug. Run the Test project (all defaults), type 222.333 then go to the decimal point and delete it (backspace or delete), the text changes to 450.5

    I'm not sure what test project you mean, and by default the maximum decimals are set to 2, so you can't type 222.333, but even if I set MaxDecimals to 3 and I do as you say I get 222333.

    Re: VB - An ActiveX control which restricts a textbox to numbers

    I just downloaded the project from the first post, ran it (NumberBox.vbg) without changin anything. I happens every time. It could be the max decimal thing, I didn't change anything there either.

    Oh. I just now noticed it has max and min value properties. It was changing based on that. In the attached project they are set to -19 and 450.5. That's why it was chaning it. My appologies.

    Re: VB - An ActiveX control which restricts a textbox to numbers

    This control is awesome and saves a lot of coding. It is great work. Thanks for it. Does it have a MaxLength property like for TextBox? How to allow commas to be typed in? E.g. 3,200.00 or 1,000,000.00, i.e. a comma separator for each three digits starting from the decimal point and going to the left, given that the decimal separator is a period.

    Thanks.

    The current version of the control does not allow adding commas as thousands separators so if you need them in a report or something my suggestion would be to use Format().

    I'm not promising to make the change but if I were to allow the use of thousand separators would you you want to be able to type them in, or would you like the control to add them automatically?

    An option to allow thousands separators, and then one to add them automatically or not (i.e. allow them to be typed).
