Hi all, coding Visual C++ in VS.NET 2003

I'm wondering if there is something similar to VB's input mask for the Edit Control.
The user will be entered the time: HH:MM and it would be nice to mask the input to avoid validating.

Not directly, but you should be able to use that same control (MSMASK32.OCX) in C++ since it's an activeX control.....

If you're using MFC, just right-click on the frame that you want to place the edit control and select "Insert ActiveX control. Then select the "Microsoft Masked Edit Control" from the list.

If you're using .Net (i.e.windows forms) you can do this as well by adding the masked edit control to your toolbox. Just right click on the toolbox and select add/remove items... Then chose the "COM" table and scroll down and check the checkbox beside the "Microsoft Masked Edit Control" from the list. You can then use the control like any other component in your toolbox...
