Hi
I have a Maskedtextfield formatted to accept the Date & time Data type. Now, I'm already having some Date and Time set in the Text Field. Suppose, the user wants to keyin some Date and Time, I need to bring up a Calender from which the user can select the Date and Time
OR
How do I format my Textfield to accept Date & Time :
Right now the format is yyyy/mm/dd => So, how do I restrict the user's i/p to yyyy => 9999 max, mm => 12 max, 1 min , dd => 31 max and 1 min
Right now the format is hh/mm/ss/ms => So, how do I restrict the user's i/p to hr => 1min, 12 max, mm => 1min, 60max, ss => 1min, 60 max, ms => 1min and 60max.
I'd greatly appreciate your help. I'm a beginner here and I'd really need the inputs from you guys.
Thanks
Meghna

Since no one has replied previously, I am throwing in my
(dumb, if you want to call it so) ideas here..........
For limiting Dates (what did you think ), I have very
frequently noticed on the web that they use a Drop Down
Box. Sometihng like what you find in here: http://travel.priceline.com/
This is a very famous implementation which most users are
used to.
Just my suggestion..............one way to acheive it!

Thanks Madhav
But the format that's wanted for the Date and Time is yyyy/mm/dd hh/mm/ss/ms. Yes, life would've been much easier if I tried it the way you've suggested me .. In fact, its much faster, but the requirement is that the moment I need to change in the Date, a calender should pop up and the user should be able to select the date in the above format. All I need to know now is for the format I've already done, how do I restrict the user to the date and time to their respective max and min values.
Please do fill me in if you find some solution.
Thanks
