Dear all
My team leader asked me if there is a possible way to create a user control that takes date values only with the format "dd/MM/yyyy" and prevent any other value or format to be entered (either by keyboard or paste) in this text box; by using VB.NET.
Can you help me please

Guys; I know that, but my team leader do not want to use calender, date time picker, or masked textbox, he want me to create a user control by using textbox to prevent user to enter non date value either by using keyboard or past

If you are using a windows app (as you state in your reply to thatraja's solution, then a Calender is wrong. Use a DateTimePicker instead - it can act like a text box and not show a drop down, but it has two advantages:
1) It displays in tyeh users preferred date format, rather than your team leaders.
2) It means you don't have to do any validation to ensure the user has entered a real date, rather than 99 99 9999, or 31st February.
If your team leader absolutely requires a text box to do this, he is an idiot.
Or this is your homework.

My 5, but not for an answer, for a comment.
This is very inappropriate, when a person not really responsible for a solution asks a question and then impose a limitation referring to some "authority".

This is the abuse. Why should we waste time for such question? Let this "team leader" call us, and let OP resolves their problems about relationships by himself.
