You can use key trapping by their corresponding ASCII equivalents and Case statements.


Private Sub Text1_KeyPress(KeyAscii As Integer)

Select Case KeyAscii

 Case 65 To 90, 8, 32, 39 ' A-Z and backspace and space Let these key codes pass through
 Case 97 To 122, 8 'a-z and backspace Let these key codes pass through
 Case Else
        KeyAscii = 0 ' Traps other characters
    End Select

Try to find the complete ASCII table. Would be useful. Cheers :)

you forgot the enter :D
keyascii 13
