 Top 10 question: masked edit?

Don't know if they ever created 32bit version, but (while working for a
previous employeer) I loved working with WinWidgets from LIFEBOAT
Publishing (800) 447-1955 (as listed in the 'Component Objects and
Companion Products for Visual Basic' that comes with VB4).  

As a specific example, if you specify a mask like ##.##, then the control
will not allow the user to input 100, nor will it force them to enter
09.00.  It even allowed different specifications for 'Edit' and 'Display'
mode (i.e. you could say that an edit field was left-justified in edit mode
(while the user is entering data) and right-justified to display (when the
user tabs to the next control.))

After getting use to the capabilites of WinWidgets, I found MS masked edit
to be severly lacking.

Farpoint has a package called InputPro  that has a masked edit control. I
can't tell you about that control in particular because I haven't used it,
but the other controls in the package (datecombo, memo, currency) are very
well done. Their web site is at
