WinForms Input Key Features

Data Validation

Specify validation rules without having to handle coded events using the input controls' pre and post-validation property settings. Pre-validation allows you to check raw input text, while post-validation enables you to verify that the value falls within specific criteria. Validate values against an exact list of allowed or excluded values, use wild-card string patterns and regular expressions, or simply fire a validation event and handle this yourself.

Input Error Detection

Detect errors while parsing or validating input values with ease. WinForms Input controls have an ErrorInfo property, allowing you to customize the error handling. For example, alert users with a beep, prevent them from putting focus to another control, display an error message, or reset the value. Detect errors using C1TextBox, C1ComboBox, C1FontPicker, C1ColorPicker, C1MultiSelect, C1DateEdit, and C1NumericEdit.

Optional Modal Buttons

C1DateEdit, C1NumericEdit, C1ColorPicker, and C1DropDownControl feature an additional optional modal button. This feature is useful for launching a special dialog box or any other custom action.

Culture & Regional Settings

Input for WinForms controls allow you to customize the culture at the control level. Configure many additional regional settings, such as calendar information for DateTime input, and special characters such as the decimal point. Specify the culture settings for any text input control, including C1TextBox, C1ComboBox, C1FontPicker, C1ColorPicker, C1MultiSelect, C1DateEdit, and C1NumericEdit.
