    I have two issues with the masked textbox:

    1) I want to set the value to empty/null/"" when the page is shown. But the masked textbox does not accept that. If I enter any string, the value is set correctly, but I was not able to set an empty value.

    2) The format I use is "AAA-AAA". When I enter characters, the "-" in the middle is moving aroung depending on the width of the characters being used. Is there a way to use a fixed width for each character here?

    Thanks in advance, best regards,

    Hello Volker,

    Straight up to your questions:

    Probably I am missing something, because the widget value method clears the input. Here is a simple Dojo demo, which shows this.

    In order to overcome this behavior, you will need to use a font-family with same width characters. Check the demo from point 1. It uses "monospace" font family.

    Thanks for the help! 

    Regarding #1
    It seems the browser sets some kind of cached text after the document is ready... So no Kendo issue (also I still do not understand this auto-fill...)

    Regarding #2
    I will give it a try, thanks for the hint!
