Hi,
I am trying to get a NumericUpDown increment to behave like a time value. I want to increment the time in 5min intervals (.05),  but when the value reaches 0.55 I want the next value to be 1.00 to represent 1 hour. What would be the easiest way to do this ? Any ideas ?

Thanks for all your help.

This probably isn't the cleanest way of doing it, but you could put something similar to this in the ValueChanged event of your NumericUpDown:

        If Me.NumericUpDown1.Value Mod 1 > 0.55 Then
            Dim newValue As Decimal = Me.NumericUpDown1.Value
            newValue += 1
            newValue -= newValue Mod 1
            Me.NumericUpDown1.Value = newValue
        End If

Thanks,  I wasnt sure if there was another way around it or if I was going to have to use code like you just provided me with.

Your code works perfect, but once you reach "1.00" you cannot go back down to "0.55" , what would I need to stick in there to be able to go backwards as well ?

Thanks a ton for your help !!

You could change your code to include a variable to store the last value, and then check if the new value is higher or lower than the old one, then perform the relevant action:

    Private _lastValue As Decimal = 0

    Private Sub NumericUpDown1_ValueChanged(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles NumericUpDown1.ValueChanged
        Dim newValue As Decimal = Me.NumericUpDown1.Value
        If Me.NumericUpDown1.Value Mod 1 > 0.59 Then
            If newValue > _lastValue Then
                newValue += 1
                newValue -= newValue Mod 1
            Else
                newValue -= 1
                newValue -= newValue Mod 1
                newValue += 0.59
            End If
            Me.NumericUpDown1.Value = newValue
        End If
        _lastValue = newValue
    End Sub

Awesome, Thanks :)

Another thing if you dont mind ?....When the value goes up to "2.00" and I want to go back down to "1.55" it goes to "0.55" instead.  Why is that?

This is turning into a lot more code then I ever thought would be needed of this ! :)

Sorry - I left in a line that should not have been there! Take out:
newValue -= 1
