This would actually put it "inside" a TextBox:

Private Declare Function SetParent Lib "user32" (ByVal hWndChild As Long, ByVal hWndNewParent As Long) As Long
Private Sub Form_Load()
    Dim mlngAPIResult As Long
   
    mlngAPIResult = SetParent(UpDown1.hWnd, Text1.hWnd)
    UpDown1.Left = Text1.Width - UpDown1.Width - 50
    UpDown1.Top = 0
End Sub

Place one textbox control and updown control in a form.
Set the following buddy control properties.
Goto custom properties. Here buddy tab page. In this page
set Buddy control property to "text1" and buddy property to "text".
When you set the buddy control property to text1 it automatically aligned the text box. This look likes spin control.
If you want to change the Min, Max, value properties of buddy control whatever you want.
