Mask control C#

Hi all,

I am just wondering if we have any mask control in C# that can be used to get phone numbers as input.

Or Do we have to actually implement it???

You can use the COM-Based ActiveX control "Microsoft Masked Edit Control".... just add a COM Reference (and add to the toolbar), then just drag it to a control surface.

Yes, the .Net Framework v2.0 *does* have a native control for this...

well ... one way to go is to declare the combo parameter as a simple object.

the using reflection, you call the methods of the combobox which you know exist since you pass a combobox :)

just an ugly workaropund. you should probalby create a class wrapper that does this so you can re-use the code. I would have done it for you but I need to run in about 15 min and I don't think I can make it in that time. sorry.

anyway, if noone comes up with  anicer solution or with the wrapper implementation, I will do it tomorrow.

cheers and Happy new year.
