Hi, I am using a grid control and I have set the style of one of its columns to "MaskEdit". Here''s the code : gcAjustements.ColStyles(COL_MOIS_IMPACT_NUM).CellType = "MaskEdit" gcAjustements.ColStyles(COL_MOIS_IMPACT_NUM).MaskEdit.ClipMode = ClipModes.IncludeLiterals gcAjustements.ColStyles(COL_MOIS_IMPACT_NUM).MaskEdit.DateSeparator = "/" gcAjustements.ColStyles(COL_MOIS_IMPACT_NUM).MaskEdit.PromptCharacter = "*" gcAjustements.ColStyles(COL_MOIS_IMPACT_NUM).MaskEdit.PassivePromptCharacter = "*" gcAjustements.ColStyles(COL_MOIS_IMPACT_NUM).MaskEdit.PaddingCharacter = "*" gcAjustements.ColStyles(COL_MOIS_IMPACT_NUM).MaskEdit.Mask = "##/####" gcAjustements.ColStyles(COL_MOIS_IMPACT_NUM).MaskEdit.AllowPrompt = False In fact, I want the user to type in a month and year, in the following format : MM/YYYY **/**** is first shown and the * are replaced by what the user types in. If I do not respect the mask (like if *1/20** is shown), I get the message "Invalid Text: *1/20**" (which is good). However, I would like to customize this message, because my whole application is in french and I would want this message to also be in french. Could you please tell me how to do so? Thank you very much....

Try handling the grid.ValidateFailed event. In your handler, you can the default message by checking grid.CurrentCell.ErrorMessage. You can also put your own text into grid.CurrentCell.ErrorMessage.
