    Make a textbox act like Excell Cell

    Hi All

    i am converting an Excell spreadsheet into an application. So i am doing automatic calculations like Excell do , for some of the cells(textbox) should allow a user to enter the minus sign "-" , and this automatically minus value entered. So my issue here is if th the users enters that character it breaks my app's calculations. Does anyone have any idea how to bypass this ?

    Thanks

    Can you post the code you're using at the moment for the calculations? Silverlight is just going to treat anything entered into the TextBox as a string.
    This pattern in common to all great programmers I know: they're not experts in something as much as experts in becoming experts in something.

    The best programming advice I ever got was to spend my entire career becoming educable. And I suggest you do the same.

    hi ,

    Alright, if any body want to get some sample codes,you can turn to Excel.dll for silverlight,as I know, it provides trail version package,within it are sample codes and demos.This is a profressional component which I'm currently evaluating to process Excel cells on Silverlight platforms.Hope helps.

    kind regards.
