HotKeyBoxcontrol wraps the
msctls_hotkey32window class, the
IPAddressBoxcontrol wraps the
SysIPAddress32window class, the
TextBoxcontrol wraps the
Editwindow class and the
UpDownTextBoxcontrol combines the
msctls_updown32. Although I tried to wrap all features of these window classes (status: Windows Server 2008), some things may be missing. In these cases you usually may use the Win32 API and handle the controls as native windows of the corresponding class. One of my goals was it to create controls that may be controlled via API as well as via the classes that I implemented.
Some features have additional requirements which are mentioned in the affected feature's documentation.
Limited support means, that I won't invest much work to support those systems. If a feature works on a system tagged with "limited support" - fine; if it does not and it's easy to fix, I'll fix it, but if it's difficult to fix, I probably won't fix it. Also I will test the control much less on those systems.

UseSystemFontwhich defaults to
True. This property tells the control to use the system font rather than the font set by the
True? Well, if I set system wide settings (like fonts) I expect all applications to follow them. Unfortunately ignoring system wide settings seems to be trendy, so see my decision as an educational measure.
2. Why is event xyz not fired?
Firing an event is relative time-consuming, even if the event isn't handled by the application at all. Therefore I implemented a
DisabledEvents property which can be used to deactivate certain events.
By default many events are deactivated.
3. What is the maximum length of the text that the
TextBox control can handle?
The magical value is 65535. This is the maximum number of characters that the
TextBox control can handle without problems. The control can display longer texts, but some features (e. g. drag'n'drop) won't work correctly then. This is due to limitations of the native
