Numeric Edit Overview

Displays numbers on a user interface as they would be displayed in a text box. The numeric edit control uses scalars rather than ASCII characters, so you don't have to coerce strings into numbers. Furthermore, the values are automatically formatted as numbers, and you can apply built-in numeric format styles.

  • Range checking.
  • Increment and decrement buttons.
  • Control or indicator display style - A control accepts input from users, while an indicator only displays its current value.
  • Built-in numeric format styles, including scientific, symbolic engineering, scaling, time, and date.
  • Three-dimensional numerical edit style.


  • To get information about any of the properties in the numeric edit control's property pages, right click on the property and select What's This?. For complete reference information about this control and its properties, click on the Visual Basic or Visual C++ Reference link.
  • In Visual C++, if you select the ALL tab in the property pages, the What's This? help is disabled.
