    So i'm trying to use a MaskedTextBox for saving a phone number, but if the string only exists of digits and no other characters in the initial value it will always remove any leading zeros.

    This gives me problems for when edit forms where a phone number of 0771234567 is loaded but 771234567 is displayed instead. If someone then clicks save all changes the leading zero is removed. I don't want it just for display either or always put a zero in front because it can also be multiple zeros depending on exit code used e.t.c. (the numbers will be used to call people they are not just for display.)

    1.<?php
    2.    $Phonenumber = new \Kendo\UI\MaskedTextBox('Phonenumber');
    3.    $Phonenumber ->value('0003333');
    4. 
    5.    echo $Phonenumber ->render();
    6.?>

    The code above will display '3333' as initial value instead of the desired '0003333', if i use '000test' instead then it works as intended and display '000test'

    I don't understand the advantage of always removing leading zeros in this situation, i'd rather do this myself using php if neccesary.

    I'm hoping i'm just missing something very simple, no kind of mask seems to help.

    The example below will display 3333 as result, where if i would use 000test instead of 0003333 it would show 000test

    Hello Rick,

    I answered to the support thread opened on the same subject. Here is a quote of the answer:

    The widget will display the defined value based on the widget's mask option. I couldn't see any mask in the given code snippet, which means that the widget will not apply any mask and will output the value unmodified. Here is a demo that demonstrate my statement: As you can see if the mask is correct or no mask is defined, the widget will output the leading zeros.

    I would like to ask you continue our discussion in only one thread to avoid any duplication. Thank you for the understanding.
