We are trying to utilise the masked edit box to provide numeric textboxes for our ui. The numeric textboxes would include
- Currency Box
- Decimal Box
- Standard integer boxes
The problems we face include the following
When a standard numeric mask is used a "0" is always inserted in the control which when navigated too is not preselected for overwriting. This is frustrating for the user as they have to delete this entry (in most cases) to continue inputing their number.
The currency box doesn't have skip literals so you have to type $ before typing in your number, this is frustring as the user wants to just start typing the number.
Is their any workarounds for these behaviours or updates?
