i need to write code using the updown control to increment or decrement a number.  The user enters a number in a textbox, then after the number is entered they have the option to increment the number or decrement it.  I got it to work for incrementing the number, the only problem is that when the down arrow is pressed it still increments the number.  Example: Private Sub UpDown2_Change()
 txtcentigrade.Text = txtcentigrade.Text + UpDown2.Increment
End Sub
I am hopeless, can anyone help me??

try something like this..

Private Sub UpDown1_DownClick()
Text1.Text = Text1.Text - UpDown1.Increment
End Sub

Private Sub UpDown1_UpClick()
Text1.Text = Text1.Text + UpDown1.Increment
End Sub

The UpDown control has the following three events--
1. Change - occurs any time the Value property of the control is changed.
2. DownClick - occurs when you click the down arrow of the control
3. UpClick - occurs when you click the up arrow of the control.

Hope this helps you.
