The following code example uses the derived class NumericUpDown and sets some of its properties derived from UpDownBase. This code requires that you have a NumericUpDown control named numericUpDown1, two ComboBox controls named comboBox1 and comboBox2, and three CheckBox controls named checkBox1, checkBox2, and checkBox2 created on a form. Add the following items to comboBox1: None, Fixed3D, and FixedSingle. Add the following items to comboBox2: Left, Right, and Center.

The code allows you to change the property values at run time and see how each affects the appearance and behavior of the spin box.

void comboBox1_SelectedIndexChanged( Object^ sender, EventArgs^ e )
{
   // Set the BorderStyle property.
   if (  !String::Compare( comboBox1->Text, "Fixed3D" ) )
   {
      numericUpDown1->BorderStyle = System::Windows::Forms::BorderStyle::Fixed3D;
   }
   else
   if (  !String::Compare( comboBox1->Text, "None" ) )
   {
      numericUpDown1->BorderStyle = System::Windows::Forms::BorderStyle::None;
   }
   else
   if (  !String::Compare( comboBox1->Text, "FixedSingle" ) )
   {
      numericUpDown1->BorderStyle = System::Windows::Forms::BorderStyle::FixedSingle;
   }
}

void comboBox2_SelectedIndexChanged( Object^ sender, EventArgs^ e )
{
   // Set the TextAlign property.    
   if (  !String::Compare( comboBox2->Text, "Right" ) )
   {
      numericUpDown1->TextAlign = HorizontalAlignment::Right;
   }
   else
   if (  !String::Compare( comboBox1->Text, "Left" ) )
   {
      numericUpDown1->TextAlign = HorizontalAlignment::Left;
   }
   else
   if (  !String::Compare( comboBox1->Text, "Center" ) )
   {
      numericUpDown1->TextAlign = HorizontalAlignment::Center;
   }
}

void checkBox1_Click( Object^ sender, EventArgs^ e )
{
   // Evaluate and toggle the ReadOnly property.
   if ( numericUpDown1->ReadOnly )
   {
      numericUpDown1->ReadOnly = false;
   }
   else
   {
      numericUpDown1->ReadOnly = true;
   }
}

void checkBox2_Click( Object^ sender, EventArgs^ e )
{
   // Evaluate and toggle the InterceptArrowKeys property.
   if ( numericUpDown1->InterceptArrowKeys )
   {
      numericUpDown1->InterceptArrowKeys = false;
   }
   else
   {
      numericUpDown1->InterceptArrowKeys = true;
   }
}

void checkBox3_Click( Object^ sender, EventArgs^ e )
{
   // Evaluate and toggle the UpDownAlign property.
   if ( numericUpDown1->UpDownAlign == LeftRightAlignment::Left )
   {
      numericUpDown1->UpDownAlign = LeftRightAlignment::Right;
   }
   else
   {
      numericUpDown1->UpDownAlign = LeftRightAlignment::Left;
   }
}
