allow only letter in textbox

I need to force the user to insert only letter in textbox and max lenght 2 cahracter...

RE: allow only letter in textbox

one way might be to use the masked edit control, with the mask set to "AA" and the prompt set to " "

Another way is to throw away characters you do not want inserted during the textboxes keypress event

RE: allow only letter in textbox


my study, wath you think about:

CODE -->

Private Sub TPR_KeyPress(KeyAscii As Integer)

    KeyAscii = Asc(UCase(Chr(KeyAscii)))

    Select Case Chr(KeyAscii)
    Case 0 To 9
        KeyAscii = 0
    End Select

End Sub 

RE: allow only letter in textbox

Bit convoluted (I'd use Case 48 to 57 and avoid any preprocessing of KeyAscii, since KeyAscii gets passed on to the default handler for the control), but essentially yes. I'd also put in a string length check here as well to meet your "max lenght 2 cahracter" requirement
