I need to develop an IP address control and it should have more features than the standard windows IP control i.e. it should allow cut/copy/paste of whole ip address. Selection of more than one octet through mouse and full set of navigational/validation features. So my question is:
1) Is there any third party wpf ip address control available (we tried a control developed for windowsÃÂ as hosted control but then there are issues like focus/validation not firing etc.)
2) What should be our approachÃÂ
ÃÂ ÃÂ ÃÂ ÃÂ i) A composite control with four textboxes with a "." in between themÃÂ - but then thereÃÂ will beÃÂ a problem of selecting more than one octet and cut/copy/paste of whole ip address - will it beÃÂ easy to implement ?
ÃÂ ÃÂ ÃÂ ii) A masked text box approach - Is there any wpf masked textbox available - would it be suitable toÃÂ ÃÂ ÃÂ ÃÂ ÃÂ ÃÂ ÃÂ ÃÂ provide complex functionality/features - where to get sample code to start from- can somebody provide the links.
3) What should be a good time estimate to develop a full-fledged wpf ip control for an intermediate wpf programmer.
Looking for some suggestions/pointers.
Thanks in advance.
