are designed to work with their Value property. Value is of type string in TextInput, double? in NumericInput, decimal? in CurrencyInput and DateTime? in DateTimeInput. The Text property is of type string and it returns actually the string you see when focus is lost - Text is result of the combination of Value, Mask, PlaceHolder, TextMode. You can consider Text as only a getter property , setting it is possible but won't do nothing - won't actually change the Value.
Could you please elaborate more on your particular scenario - what do you need to save as a value and what do you need to be displayed as a string? This way we would be better able to help you. Probably this requirement could be achieved with combination no-mask, FormatString or something similar. We would be glad to help you further.
