Sample codings to restrict special characters in vb6 &
Updated 1-May-10 5:11am

They are not the only way, one od the ways to do them...

VB6: Use Ascii values the way you want! Ex:
Option Explicit

'This will only accepts the alphabets and no other key is allowed.
Private Sub Text1_KeyPress(KeyAscii As Integer)
    If Not KeyAscii >= 65 And KeyAscii < 90 Then
        KeyAscii = 0
    End If
End Sub

VB.NET: Use KeyPressed for validation...
'Textbox KeyPress
' Allow number 0-9 plus backspace, Del + Home + End will be accepted also
Dim ValidInputChar = "0123456789." + vbBack
If not ValidInputChar.Contains(e.KeyChar) then
End If

But does not allow to paste
This function restrict user from inserting special characters

if ((!char.IsLetterOrDigit(e.KeyChar))&&(!(e.KeyChar==(char)Keys.Back)))
e.Handled = true;

e.Handled = false;
