How do I fix the input allowed into an input box?

Basically I want the user to be only allowed to type in numberical values (no spaces or symbols) also I want the inputbox to appear in this structure

02:10:20

And I don't want the user to be able to delete the colons.

How do I do this?

I'd use a DateTimePicker, not a TextBox.

I'm using an inputbox. Do you know how I can accomplish what I have outlined above?

Heck no; I wouldn't try. Use the right tool for the right job.

Totally agree. Doing it with a text box is just silly. My 5.
