I'm using a maskEdBox with a format of dd-mmm-yyyy and a
mask of ##/##/####. It works fairly fine if I
enter something like "30121998", but if I enter just "30131998" and tab off the control it doesnt check if a valid date has been entered. Is there a switch I can set to force this validation or do I have to write a little checkroutine and call it in the LostFocus of the MEDBox.

ya, i think you have to write a date validation in the lostfocus of that MEDBox. you can probably use IsDate function to check for valid dates. also check for help on IsDate function.

let me know if this helps
