Thanks for the reply. I'll head down the avenue of simple in this case :-). How far along (if at all) is the IP Address control? I wouldn't mind playing around with whatever you have.

The standard IP Address control is not implemented in Win32::GUI - it's
on the TODO list.
You might be able to do something clever with a single line Textfield,
and catching all keystrokes, but it's probably quite hard.
Your best bet might be to have have 4 text boxes, separated with labels
I'm sure others will be able to make more helpful suggestions.
