Create a simple application with DoubleTextBox

Create a project

Create a new Windows Forms project in Visual Studio to display the DoubleTextBox control.

Add control through designer

The DoubleTextBox control can be added to an application by dragging it from the toolbox to a designer view. The Syncfusion.Shared.Base assembly reference will be added automatically:

The maximum and minimum value constraints

You can set the maximum and minimum values using the MaxValue and MinValue properties of DoubleTextBox.

this.doubleTextBox1.MaxValue = 25;
this.doubleTextBox1.MinValue = 4;
Me.doubleTextBox1.MaxValue = 25
Me.doubleTextBox1.MinValue = 4

Change number format

You can customize the number format using the NumberDecimalDigits, NumberDecimalSeparator, NumberGroupSeparator, NumberGroupSizes, and NumberNegativePattern properties of DoubleTextBox.

C# this.doubleTextBox1.DoubleValue = 24851343548781;
this.doubleTextBox1.NumberDecimalDigits = 3;
this.doubleTextBox1.NumberDecimalSeparator = “-“;
this.doubleTextBox1.NumberGroupSeparator = “;”;
this.doubleTextBox1.NumberGroupSizes = new int[] { 4 };
this.doubleTextBox1.NumberNegativePattern = 2;
VB Me.doubleTextBox1.DoubleValue = 24851343548781
Me.doubleTextBox1.NumberDecimalDigits = 3
Me.doubleTextBox1.NumberDecimalSeparator = “-“
Me.doubleTextBox1.NumberGroupSeparator = “;”
Me.doubleTextBox1.CurrencyGroupSizes = New Integer() {3}
Me.doubleTextBox1.NumberNegativePattern = 2
