Good Day:

I am using VS.NET 2005 Windows.Forms.MaskedTextBox Control.  I would like to format my MaskedTextBox control to display data as 99,000 or 9,000.  Unfortunately when I have a value of 9992 it gets displayed as 99,9200 using the format ##,###  It works when I use the format #,### but i need to have the format flexible for values of 99,000 or 9,000.

Any Suggestions?
Thanks,
Denise

Why don't you use an regular textbox and set the format on leave event ?

Hi Jpaulino:

I finally gave up trying to use the mask control, and added labels and used the format function.

Thank You,
Denise
