How do I mask data that can be entered into a TextBox field?

How do I mask data that can be entered into a TextBox field? For example, the TextBox must only allow to accept data with the following mask: "#0.00."
There's no .NET equivalent (so far) to the "old" MaskEditControl OCX. One workaround would be to simply use that OCX, which is perfectly possible. The .NET way is to inherit the TextBox and add the logic for the mask overriding the base class events and methods. //TODO
