What about negative numbers, or numbers with decimal points? And what number has a space in it?

For a numbers with decimal point you add c == 46 and for negative numbers use c == 45

If I do that, then -384.2834-234.20394 becomes acceptable, and that isn't a number!

And why are you using the magic numbers rather than the Keys enumeration.

I didn't know about Keys enumeration.
Thanks.

Sorry for the late response, (I was quite ill lately) I once wrote this snippet: http://www.daniweb.com/software-development/csharp/code/217265/capturing-numeric-input-in-a-textbox

Regexpression can be used to accomplish this variety of options.

easy:

<input  type="text" onkeyup="this.value=this.value.replace(/[^\d]/,'');">
