Hi Friends,

I have two textbox for username and password ,i want user to restrict special characters and numbers...

i have written the following code but it is not accepting backspace and space buttons.
if the user wants to edit the username and password, backspace button is not working.
This code i have written in KeyPress Event.


if (!char.IsLetter(e.KeyChar))
            {
                e.Handled = true;
            }

if (char.IsLetter(e.KeyChar) || e.KeyChar == (char)Keys.Back || e.KeyChar == (char)Keys.Space)
{
    // These characters may pass
    e.Handled = false;
}
else
{
    // Everything that is not a letter, nor a backspace nor a space will be blocked
    e.Handled = true;
}


Hope that helps!

Regards,

Manfred

You got a +5 from me. :)
Try this :-
if(e.KeyChar != 8 && e.KeyChar != 32)
      {
        if (!char.IsLetter(e.KeyChar))
            {
                e.Handled = true;
            }
       }


Hope this will help you :)
