OK, fair enough, but all those can be configured too.

Anyway, back in my VCL and LCL days I used to simply hook a generic
OnKeyPress event to TEdit and it automatically limited the text box to
numeric data only. The event handler was something like 2-3 lines of
code. I could find it if somebody was really interested - oh, and it
worked on all platforms too.
