NumericUpDown.Minimum Property

Gets or sets the minimum allowed value for the spin box (also known as an up-down control).

Namespace:  System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)
public decimal Minimum { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Decimal
The minimum allowed value for the spin box. The default value is 0.

When the Minimum property is set, the Maximum property is evaluated and the UpdateEditText method is called. If the new Minimum property value is greater than the Maximum property value, the Maximum value is set equal to the Minimum value. If the Value is less than the new Minimum value, the Value property is also set equal to the Minimum value.

The following code example creates and initializes a NumericUpDown control, sets some of its common properties, and allows the user to change some of these properties at run time. This code assumes three CheckBox controls have been placed on a form and handlers for their Click events have been instantiated. The DecimalPlaces, ThousandsSeparator, and Hexadecimal properties are set on the Click event of each check box.

public void InstantiateMyNumericUpDown()
{
   // Create and initialize a NumericUpDown control.
   numericUpDown1 = new NumericUpDown();

   // Dock the control to the top of the form.
   numericUpDown1.Dock = System.Windows.Forms.DockStyle.Top;

   // Set the Minimum, Maximum, and initial Value.
   numericUpDown1.Value = 5;
   numericUpDown1.Maximum = 2500;
   numericUpDown1.Minimum = -100;

   // Add the NumericUpDown to the Form.
   Controls.Add(numericUpDown1);
}

// Check box to toggle decimal places to be displayed. 
private void checkBox1_Click(Object sender,
                             EventArgs e)
{
   /* If DecimalPlaces is greater than 0, set them to 0 and round the 
      current Value; otherwise, set DecimalPlaces to 2 and change the 
      Increment to 0.25. */ 
   if (numericUpDown1.DecimalPlaces > 0)
   {
      numericUpDown1.DecimalPlaces = 0;
      numericUpDown1.Value = Decimal.Round(numericUpDown1.Value, 0);
   }
   else
   {
      numericUpDown1.DecimalPlaces = 2;
      numericUpDown1.Increment = 0.25M;
   }
}

// Check box to toggle thousands separators to be displayed. 
private void checkBox2_Click(Object sender,
                             EventArgs e)
{   
   /* If ThousandsSeparator is true, set it to false; 
      otherwise, set it to true. */ 
   if (numericUpDown1.ThousandsSeparator)
   {
      numericUpDown1.ThousandsSeparator = false;
   }
   else
   {
      numericUpDown1.ThousandsSeparator = true;
   }
}

// Check box to toggle hexadecimal to be displayed. 
private void checkBox3_Click(Object sender, 
                             EventArgs e)
{
   /* If Hexadecimal is true, set it to false; 
      otherwise, set it to true. */     
   if (numericUpDown1.Hexadecimal)
   {
      numericUpDown1.Hexadecimal = false;
   }
   else
   {
      numericUpDown1.Hexadecimal = true;
   }
}
