    Hi!
    Can the NumUpDown control be used to increment and display numbers with a decimal point? I've had a play but nothing is obvious ...any ideas?

    Staright answer....NO

    BUT you can use a combination of num control to create a decimal number...
    like one to the hole number, one to 1/10ths and one th the 1/100... then combine the results

    a=num1.value &","& num2.value & num3.value
    suposing that the min is set to 0 and max to 9

    If num1 = 5 and num2=4 and num3 = 2
    a=5,42

    See also the code in this example, not yet finished under the control UNITS.

    Here's a simple solution, I offered to someone in the old forum who wanted to increment in Tens...

    Just overlay a TextBox over the NumUpDown control, now you can display in whatever units you want, you could even add a symbol if needed.

    Attached is an example that counts in 0.1 increments, bet you can't spot any difference in operation to a normal NumUpDown control :cool:

    Well the text is grey and doesn't match other controls' text because the Textbox needs to be disabled and this automatically greys the text.:(

    To REALLY make it look like a normal UpDown control leave the Textbox enabled and use a GotFocus event procedure to prevent user entry.:cool:
    Code:
    Sub TextBox1_GotFocus
        Num1.Focus
    End Sub
    EDIT: Erel, if you read this, why do I get two GotFocus events in this situation? Without the Num1.Focus I get the single event I expect, if I call the .Focus method on any other control I get called twice!

    Hi!
    Thanks for the replies, Randomcoder your solution works find for me the fact that it's greyed out is a bonus.
    Dave.
