NumericUpDown.Hexadecimal Property

Gets or sets a value indicating whether the spin box (also known as an up-down control) should display the value it contains in hexadecimal format.

Namespace: System.Windows.Forms
Assembly: System.Windows.Forms (in system.windows.forms.dll)

public bool Hexadecimal { get; set; }
/** @property */
public boolean get_Hexadecimal ()

/** @property */
public void set_Hexadecimal (boolean value)

public function get Hexadecimal () : boolean

public function set Hexadecimal (value : boolean)

Not applicable.

Property Value

true if the spin box should display its value in hexadecimal format; otherwise, false. The default is false.

When the Hexadecimal property is set, the UpdateEditText method is called to update the spin box's display to the new format.

When the Hexadecimal property is set to true, the Maximum property should be set to Int32.MaxValue and the Minimum property should be set to Int32.MinValue.

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.

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