Another Masked Edit Question

Another Masked Edit Question

Another Masked Edit Question

I am showing my newbie status here...

I have a form with two masked text boxes. One is for a date and one is for a phone number. All works well with the mask. However, I have a need to clear the contents of the text boxes. I can't seem to get this to work. I believe it is because the formats are numeric, so when I use the simple frmFrom1.text1.text="" command, nothing happens because it's a numeric value.

How does one clear a masked edit box that has a number format?

Thanks all.

RE: Another Masked Edit Question

You might try clearing the mask, then setting the value to "", then re-setting the mask.

RE: Another Masked Edit Question

That worked like a charm. Thanks for the help!

RE: Another Masked Edit Question

You're quite welcome.
