Derives from Xceed.Wpf.Toolkit.DecimalUpDown

The CalculatorUpDown provides a TextBox with button spinners that allow incrementing and decrementing numeric values by using the spinner buttons, keyboard up/down arrows, or mouse wheel. It also provides a Calculator dropdown which allows you to perform mathematical calculations.


When using the CalculatorUpDown in data binding scenarios, bind your object's value to the Value property. You can specify how much to increment the value by setting the Increment property. You can control the minimum and maximum allowed values by setting the Minimum and the Maximum properties. You can also specify if the user can directly edit the values in the text box by setting the IsEditable property. If you would like to get the actual fromatted string representation of the value, you can use the Text property.

Applying FormatStrings

     <xctk:CalculatorUpDown Value="1564.6749586" />

Floating Point:
     <xctk:CalculatorUpDown FormatString="F3" Value="1564.6749586" Increment=".001"  Maximum="200000.599" />

     <xctk:CalculatorUpDown FormatString="C2" Value="1564.6749586" Increment=".5" Maximum="5000.50" Minimum="50.01" />

Supported Format Strings

Format Specifier Name
C Currency
F Fixed Point
G General
N Number
P Percent


You can provide a Watermark to show text in place of a NULL Value.

     <xctk:CalculatorUpDown Watermark="Enter Value" />

Please use a Discussion tab.
Setting CalculatorUpDown.Visibility = Collapsed works well. Can you point out the fixed width and height ?

This control sets fixed width and height of its parts and it does not work well with Visibility.Collapsed.

Cool tool. But is there any way to make data entry more consistent with a textbox regarding binding updates? In particular a binding like this :

Value="{Binding Path=MyProperty, UpdateSourceTrigger=PropertyChanged}"

*does not* cause the binding to be updated immediately when the value in the control is updated by keyboard input as one would expect....
