Apex True DBGrid Pro 6.0 Edit Mask Question

I am using a Apex True DBGrid Pro 6.0, and in one of my columns I need to only allow the users to enter a maximum of 7 digits.  I tried using the code below:

  With dbgTransData.Columns("Case Num")
    .Width = 1100: .Caption = "Case Num": .Alignment = dbgRight
    .EditMask = "#######": .NumberFormat = "Edit Mask": .HeadAlignment = dbgCenter
  End With

The code works as far as only allowing the user to enter 7 digits but I need the default value to display as "0000000".  The code above displays a default value of "0" centered in the column.  

Any ideas on how to get what I am trying to accompish to work?

Cant speak for the grid your talking about, but if EditMask works the same way as the Format function then the EditMask your looking for would be

..EditMask = "0000000"

Dont know if it'll work but its worth a go.

Didn't work Gordon.  The column data did display as "0000000" but it would not allow me to edit the data.  Thanks for the idea though.

The column object has a property called Datawidth. This is of type long and defaults to 0 which imposes no size restrictions. Set this value to 7 and your problem should be solved.
