Formatting DBEdit-Components ???
Posted on 2000-04-25
I have an DB-Application.
One of the tables has a numeric field.
The field always has to contain a number of the format : YYYYMMxxx,
where 'xxx' is a unique number within the same year (YYYY) and month (MM).
This number has to be shown in both a DBGrid and DBEdit, but has to have the following
format : YYYY-MM-xxx.
I used the FieldEditor of my Table-component, and fill the DisplayFormat and EditFormat with '0000-00-000'.
Displaying the field looks OK, but when I want to change the DBEdit, than I have to fill in
the whole number (YYYYMMxxx), wihtout the hyphens.
What I want is that the user sees '____-__-___' and just has to fill in the numeric part.
(so, the DBEdit should act like a MaskEdit with Editmask set to '0000-00-000').
Can someone help me out with this?
P.S. : I'm using D5 with Access-DB (Office 97).
