Hi,

How is it possible to format a textbox on VB 6, so that it would show date data ?

For example, I want the following format on a text box :

**/**/****

which is dd/mm/yyyy format.

I can't use DTPicker, since user are allowed NOT to fill the date.

How is this possible.

Please let me know.

Thanks

Try this,

Add the Microsoft Masked Edit Control under Components (CTRL + T)

Then add this:

Private Sub Form_Load()
 MaskEdBox1.Mask = "##/##/####"
End Sub
