Hi there

Please see code below, trying to although the user to enter numbers but not characters which works perfectly, the backspace key doesn't work though! DEL works, have even added in the ascii code for backspace (8) and allowed it to handle key press, doesn't work at build though!

ANy ideas where it's going wrong?

Thanks!
If e.KeyChar >= Chr(48) And e.KeyChar <= Chr(57) Then
            e.Handled = False ' works!
'added this line to see if it work, but doesn't!
        ElseIf e.KeyChar = Chr(8) Then ' 8 is Backspace
            e.Handled = True
        Else
            e.Handled = True
        End If

I guess it should be:
        If e.KeyChar >= Chr(48) And e.KeyChar <= Chr(57) Then
            e.Handled = False ' works!
        ElseIf e.KeyChar = Chr(8) Then ' 8 is Backspace
            e.Handled = False      <----------------------- this was true
        Else
            e.Handled = True
        End If
