  • Last Updated : 26 Jul, 2019

In Windows Forms, NumericUpDown control is used to provide a Windows spin box or an up-down control which displays the numeric values. Or in other words, NumericUpDown control provides an interface which moves using up and down arrow and holds some pre-defined numeric value. In NumericUpDown control, you can set the name of the up-down control using the Name Property. You can set this property in two different ways:

1. Design-Time: It is the easiest way to set the name the NumericUpDown as shown in the following steps:

  • Step 1: Create a windows form as shown in the below image:
    Visual Studio -> File -> New -> Project -> WindowsFormApp
  • Step 2: Next, drag and drop the NumericUpDown control from the toolbox on the form as shown in the below image:

  • Step 3: After drag and drop you will go to the properties of the NumericUpDown and set the name of the NumericUpDown as shown in the below image:


2. Run-Time: It is a little bit trickier than the above method. In this method, you can set the name of the NumericUpDown control programmatically with the help of given syntax:

public string Name { get; set; }

The value of this property is of System.String type, it represents the name of the NumericUpDown. The following steps show how to set name the NumericUpDown dynamically:

  • Step 1: Create a NumericUpDown using the NumericUpDown() constructor is provided by the NumericUpDown class.
    // Creating a NumericUpDown
    NumericUpDown n = new NumericUpDown();
  • Step 2: After creating NumericUpDown, set the Name property of the NumericUpDown provided by the NumericUpDown class.
    // Setting the name
    n.Name = "MySpinBox";
  • Step 3: And last add this NumericUpDown control to the form using the following statement:
    // Adding NumericUpDown control on the form


    using System;
    using System.Collections.Generic;
    using System.ComponentModel;
    using System.Data;
    using System.Drawing;
    using System.Linq;
    using System.Text;
    using System.Threading.Tasks;
    using System.Windows.Forms;
    namespace WindowsFormsApp42 {
    public partial class Form1 : Form {
        public Form1()
        private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
            // Creating and setting the 
            // properties of the labels
            Label l1 = new Label();
            l1.Location = new Point(348, 61);
            l1.Size = new Size(215, 20);
            l1.Text = "Form";
            l1.Font = new Font("Bodoni MT", 12);
            Label l2 = new Label();
            l2.Location = new Point(242, 136);
            l2.Size = new Size(103, 20);
            l2.Text = "Enter Age";
            l2.Font = new Font("Bodoni MT", 12);
            // Creating and setting the 
            // properties of NumericUpDown
            NumericUpDown n = new NumericUpDown();
            n.Location = new Point(386, 130);
            n.Size = new Size(126, 26);
            n.Font = new Font("Bodoni MT", 12);
            n.Value = 18;
            n.Minimum = 18;
            n.Maximum = 30;
            n.BackColor = Color.LightGreen;
            n.ForeColor = Color.DarkGreen;
            n.Increment = 1;
            n.Name = "MySpinBox";
            // Adding this control
            // to the form
