NumericUpDown.Maximum Property

Gets or sets the maximum 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 Maximum { get; set; }
/** @property */
public Decimal get_Maximum ()

/** @property */
public void set_Maximum (Decimal value)

public function get Maximum () : decimal

public function set Maximum (value : decimal)

Not applicable.

Property Value

The maximum value for the spin box. The default value is 100.

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

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