I would like to use textbox to accept date in VB 6 instead of using dtpicker. The text box should contain oblique sign like ( / / ) to enter dd/MM/YYYY type date during form load.
I tried to use Microsoft Mask Edit control also but it is showing unscore when the textbox get focus.
So pl help me.
You can't as far as I know but then again you may be able to subclass the control. You can however use a standard textbox control and set its initial text to " / / ", then test for numbers on keypress to make sure user is entering numbers and if user has entered a number then you would replace the first space with what the user has entered. On the other hand you could use the DTPicker(date time picker) control with a custom format if needed and just allow the user to pick the date.
