I have some textboxes which I made read-only, however can be populated using the calendar control. The point is that i don't want the end users to type in the wrong date by accident but rather use the calendar control.
While I was looking at it, I wondered if a user wanted to delete what he entered, could he since it is read-only?

do you want to clear the whole textbox?
if thats so then you could, under the textboxs Key down event, check if the user clicked the delete key
Private Sub txtName_KeyDown(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.KeyEventArgs) Handles txtName.KeyDown
If e.KeyCode = Keys.Delete Then
txtbox.Text = Nothing
Is that what you mean, or do you have multipul dates in one textbox and you only want to delete the last one entered?
hmmm... it doesnt seemt o work with the delete key but it works with others, can anyone explain this?
oh, delete is for the DEL key not the backspace :chuckle: anyways just change it to 'back' instead
