Dear Experts,
      I faced a problem in using the maskedited for Date.
When I key in the date like :) 08/15/1998, the maskedited will automatically convert to 15/081998.. although I have already formated my date into dd/mm/yyyy... How can I solve this problem ?  This type of automatically converting problems also happened when  I try to key in the date like:)

15/08/0020 ----> 15/08/2020 etc.

How can I detect it and not allow this type of convertion
occurs ???

May I know what do you expect when you enter 08/15/1998? I thought since you have set the format to be dd/mm/yyyy, the converted result 15/08/1998 is correct...

TRKCORP is correct. What you are looking for is European sytle Date settings.  These settings use dd/mm/yyyy vise U.S settings mm/dd/yyyy.  Just go to Regional setting in Your control pannel to change.  If that isnt what you want then call me.

Sunj is correct. I had set the format of date to dd/mm/yyyy, so VB straight away convert the incorrect date to the correct format. thank you for yours answers.
