There is no special input box for IP address.

You can use TextBox from toolbox and \b\d{1,3}\.\d{1,3}\.\d{1,3}\.\d{1,3}\b regex expression for IP address validation.

why u r validating the textbox for ip address ! better u can automatically retrive the ip address and computer name in ur application.
It provides u high security

note the code below

using System.Net;

Private string GetIP()
string HostName = "";
HostName = System.Net.Dns.GetHostName();

IPHostEntry ipEntry = System.Net.Dns.GetHostEntry(HostName);

IPAddress[] addr = ipEntry.AddressList;

return addr[addr.Length-1].ToString();


Thanks & Regards,

Mark if the answer is true
