IP Control

Status: New

There could be a IP Control in LabVIEW which will function the same way as the IP address in Network connection properties. There should be inbuilt validation of the each of the 4 fields hence eliminating the need to validate the IP address programmatically. Also when the user has finished typing the value in the first field, the control should immediately move after the dot and wait for input in the second field, etc.

A built-in control would be useful. In the meantime, you can use this XControl:

Essentially this idea is a subset of this other idea:

I'm going to recommend closing this idea as a duplicate of the other, more general, idea.

I would also prefer the more general "Input Mask" idea

And what about IPv6 with all his different notations?
