How come I get in textbox long time, while set to short time - 07-29-2009 , 07:58 AM
How come I get the time in hrs/min/sec while the with the mask input
wizard I get 00:00;0;_ as mask. Other similar textboxes give the right
With mask 00:00 only no other effect.
Also in the table properties the field is set to Short Time.

An "Input Mask" is used to structure input, not to format display... the
Format property of the Textbox should be set to the format you want. Masks
seem "quirky" to many users, and I avoid them when possible; my users would
rather get an error message and an opportunity to correct, than to have
their cursor set in the middle of the mask if they don't click on the very
rightmost part of the box.
