Hi

I would like to use the MaskedTextBox control to enter and IP address.

The custom works fine for 3 digits ie 255.255.255.255 but not for less ie 10.10.0.1

Thanks

I think it's 999.999.999.999 the 9 represents an optional character, you might be able to get clever and say: 099.099.099.099 so you are requiring at least one character.  See http://www.experts-exchange.com/Databases/MS_Access/Q_20830767.html for how other people do it....sometimes it's good to seperate the four groups of characters so you can validate them seperately and then you can concatonate them later

doesn't it work if you put MaskedTextBox1.Mask = "999-999-999-999"? sorry i haven't much experience with textbox masks but according to this link: http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.windows.forms.maskedtextbox.mask.aspx
the 9 is for an optional digit...

it gives you the source for creating your own textbox into an ip address maskbox.

gangwisch - that code almost worked except you can enter 4 characters into the first section - thanks for your help anyway.
