Hey Everyone,

I have a text box, and i want to make sure the user doesnt ruin my program by putting in random chars instead of just numeric values.

Now i believe using something like

Private Sub Text1_KeyPress(ByVal KeyAscii As Integer)
        If KeyAscii <> vbKeyBack Then
            If Not IsNumeric(Chr(KeyAscii)) Then
                KeyAscii = 0
            End If
        End If
    End Sub

However i am using Visual Web Developer and it does not recognise _Keypress!!!1, i have the option to use AJAX but it will mess up the rest of my coding because everything else pretty much works and will work out very complicated to change it all

Can anyone help please?

thank you :D :-/

generally in this case no code to be written in asp.net as you can use expression validator to check for your inputs at client side. try dis:

^[0-9]+$

Hope this helps

Check out this code:

Private Sub textBox1_KeyPress(sender As Object, e As KeyPressEventArgs)
	'allows backspace key
	If e.KeyChar <> ControlChars.Back Then
		'allows just number keys
		e.Handled = Not Char.IsNumber(e.KeyChar)
	End If
End Sub

<asp:RegularExpressionValidator ID="REtxtMobileNo" ControlToValidate="txtMobileNo"
ValidationExpression="^((-)?[0-9]+(\.[0-9]+)?)$" Display="None" runat="server"
ErrorMessage="Invalid Mobile Phone"></asp:RegularExpressionValidator>

try this code
