Below is the video that shows how the mask is shown to the user and how do we use the mask completed property.

As you see, each character has a meaning and accept rule. // These masks control the output in a specific format.

Say for example, the character 0 states that it only accepts the number. private void rad Mask1_Checked Changed(object sender, Event Args e) private void rad Mask2_Checked Changed(object sender, Event Args e) private void rad Mask3_Checked Changed(object sender, Event Args e) private void rad Mask4_Checked Changed(object sender, Event Args e) private void rad Mask5_Checked Changed(object sender, Event Args e) We just set the caption text of the radio control to the mask property of masked edit control.

The Input Types dialog box will appear displaying a list of predefined formats (see Figure 3), and an option to add your own custom format: Figure 3: Input Types Add the following code to one of your Masked Text Boxes: Private Sub Masked Text Box1_Mask Input Rejected(sender As Object, _ e As Mask Input Rejected Event Args) Handles _ Masked Text Box1.

In edit control, user enter the data and we do validation and manipulate that data to a specific format if required before persisting that information into the database.

You can actually provide your own format based on the need.

The Show Output button will extract the text content from masked edit and display it in the text box control next to it.

Look at the radio group and it shows the first one says it expects some number and fourth one says it expects number (Again) in the form of hour, minute, seconds. The zeros in the mask say that a number (0-9) should be entered and the colon ‘:’ is the literal that cannot be changed.

So when user types the time they no need to type the colons as it already there in the required position.

The original control is still available in the Xceed. Gets or sets a value indicating if the focus can navigate in the appropriate flow direction (e.g., from one cell to another when a cell is being edited) when the cursor is at the beginning or end of the auto-select text box.

Note: This version of Masked Text Box replaces the toolkit's original control, providing a much more complete API. Obsolete namespace; see Masked Text Box (obsolete version).

First, the edit box is set with the Mask property and the property is used to educate the control so that it can know what key press should be processed to take that as input.
