Dear support,

In our projects we need a full featured edit control which allows to input data in different numeric formats for integers and floating point values.

It would be very nice to use regular expressions to describe input  data format (for digit grouping, decimals separators etc.)

Currently we use modified classes from:;br />
but it would be suitable to have such control in prof-UIS.

Unfortunately the new CExtEditMasked control does not offer such posibility.

Can we expect that such control appears in the near future in the Prof-UIS?

If the creation of the universal control requires a lot of time it would be

preferable to have at least an element for editing of numbers with digit grouping option

and adjustable fractional part in the nearest versions.

We are working on two versions of the new editor classes with input validation: currency and numeric editors. Both use data format descriptions from Windows locale settings for input validation. We want them to be used in appropriate grid cell classes. The currency editor is almost finished. The numeric editor is not finished yet. If you have no time to wait for our new classes, then you can use any editor class from sites like We believe if you change the based class of such third party validation editors from the MFC’s CEdit class to the CExtEdit class from Prof-UIS, then you will get the editor like you need.
