vb.net numericupdown control

I'm using several of these to allow the user to enter different values (both integer & decimal, if it matters).
I'd like the functionality where, once the user tabs or otherwise sets focus on the control, the current value (typically 0 or 0.0) would be highlighted so it could be typed over, without having to remove the 0/0.0 value that's there before typing the new value...

Hello sirbounty,

You can use MouseDown and Enter events, like this:


    Private Sub NumericUpDown1_Enter(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles NumericUpDown1.Enter
        NumericUpDown1.Select(0, NumericUpDown1.Value.ToString().Length)
    End Sub 

    Private Sub NumericUpDown1_MouseDown(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.MouseEventArgs) Handles NumericUpDown1.MouseDown
        NumericUpDown1.Select(0, NumericUpDown1.Value.ToString().Length)
    End Sub

Open in new window
