I am currently working on new samples and ideas for our new BrowserTextControl that is part of TX Text Control Server for ASP.NET (incl. Windows Forms). In one of these samples, I needed a field with a fixed length.

Sometimes, text fields must be enhanced for different applications. Consider a currency text field in an invoice or quotation that checks it's own validity.

Or a field that allows only digits instead of letters.

I have made a new sample that illustrates how to create a new text field class that offers a field with a fixed length. Missing characters in the field are filled up with a fill character like a dot ('.') or an 'x'. This class inherits all properties and methods from the base class TextField.
