    I have noted some aspects in RadMaskeditBox that I found important for better performance and funcionality for users, When using Numeric Mask.

    First: Before I start input numeric data I can see for ex: 0.00 default mask according MaskString, and i wanted to input 100,000 but i note first 0 from mask continues like a static number, thus, mask shows me 1,000,000.00. To correct this I need to shift 1 caret position to the right from mask "0.00" (integer number before decimal point) so mask replace 0 to the first 1 (comes from 100000 number) while typing digits and shows me 100,000.00, that is was I needed. This behavior turns into some annoying because when people needs fast typing using numkeypad must clik into every maskeditbox, then shift the caret position or clicking mouse over caret position just before decimal point, thus for some people is tedious try to point just in the right position to start digits input. Due to caret position generally start from left position to first 0 from mask, I think you should consider when some begins typing, inmediatelly 0 (mask) be replaced with first number typed.

    Second: When I'm typing and I need decimal numbers, normally I expect when I typing (.) (decimal point) from keypad would have adecuated behavior into radMaskeditBox, and automatically shitf just right to the decimal point, but it doesn't happen. This would be good for better typing performance.

    Thanks for consider this tips

    I agree, typing a decimal point seems more natural way to move to the right of the decimal-point.
