    Hi!

    How do you guys validate an edit control to accept only some chars?
    I have a theory about it...

    1.- subclass the edit control
    2.- trap the WM_KEYPRESS or WM_CHAR
    3.- test the character stroke.

    is this the proper way?

    Additional: I'm trying to accept only the following chars: 0-9 and .
