I'am using Excel XP, and The buildin MS controls like TextBox, CalendarPicker, MaskEditBox, and so on... are not satisfactory for me.

E.g. I need use simle and effective control by input date. By usig classic TextBox I must always enter data separator too.

By using MaskEditBox, I can't allign the date to the right.

Using DateTimePicker (DTPicker) with mouse can I very elegant pick date from calendar, but when i wont enter the date manualy - its unbelievable - must I between entering day, month and year press allways right arrow too !!!

Can you reccomend for me better control, or set of controls ?

Thank You.
 

Excel Facts

Show numbers in thousands?
Use a custom number format of #,##0,K. Each comma after the final 0 will divide the displayed number by another thousand

There are many sources of free and commercial activex controls that are claimed to be better than Microsoft's.

Here is one site, the Common Controls Replacement Project:

(I have not personally evalutated any of these controls so I dont know if they are really better than Microsoft's :) )
