Thank you for writing.
In order to get the RadMaskedBox's Value property without spaces you should set TextMaskFormat property to ExcludePromptAndLiterals.
.radMaskedEditBox1.TextMaskFormat = MaskFormat.ExcludePromptAndLiterals;
As to the second question, please open at design time the RadMaskedEditBox Smart Tag (refer to the attached screenshot) and click Edit UI elements, then select Border Primitive and set ForeColor
to the desired color.
I hope this helps.
