    Code saver for InputScope is in the textrbox itself:


    TextBox Grid.Row="0" Grid.Column="1" Name="txbPrice" Text="0" VerticalAlignment="Center" Width="250" TextChanged="txbPrice_TextChanged" InputScope="Digits" />

    I'm sorry but something that says "ok let's do this in the xaml just here"  without showing or explaining what you are doing and "you can download the code, I won't bother typing it in because i won't remember it" is not a tutorial, it's just watching you make the app, which is of limited use.
