Anyone out there knowing how to center or right aling text (ex.:   1.25) without having to
 use «_» as literal in the prompt char field?

There is one routine that permits to right align currency without using literals but when
the control looses focus it automatically re-align itself to the of the maskedbox.

How do I prevent that ? (I want the text to stay right align when I move to the next
maskedbox !)

Thanks for the help

I Don't know how the prompt char helps in aligning. But I know for Currency, setting the Format Property to
$#,##0.00;($#,##0.00) will give the right alignment as well.
