Namespace:   System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)

property bool Hexadecimal {
	bool get();
	void set(bool value);
}

Property Value

Type: System::Boolean

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.

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

private:
   // Check box to toggle decimal places to be displayed.
   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 = Decimal(0.25);
      }
   }

   // Check box to toggle thousands separators to be displayed.
   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.
   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;
      }
   }
