Default Creating an Input Mask in a text box in VB.NET

How do you create an input mask for a text box in VB.NET?

I need to know how to only allow letters with spaces for some boxes; and I need to know how to only allow numbers for other boxes.

Could someone please point me in the right direction.

You can't mask the input, but you can validate it. Look at System.Web.UI.WebControls.RegularExpressionValidat or

You can plug in a regular expression to specify what characters are allowed and when the form tries to submit, it will validate against that.

Work smarter, not harder.
