Default Editbox with Date format

Hi,

I have an editbox on a dialog in a SDI project that is a date field. Is there a way to create an input mask for the editbox so that only the mm/dd/yyyy format may be entered? Or will I just have to let them enter the date and check against the member variable for the editbox to see what they entered?

Thanks!

For edit boxes in Visual C++ I have had to
PROGRAM for any kind of formating I have
ever wanted to enforce on them. There is no real
choice I think in this regard.And I used to do
all this coding in EN_CHANGE handler.

But I tell you what, I'm very impressed by the
way the web sites these days collect this kind of
data from the user and I have long been giving
three comboboxes (for day, month and year
respectively) instead of an edit box
on my forms for collecting date data.
