enumeration, that exposes the following values:
- MaskedText - if a RadMaskedInput control's TextMode property is set to MaskedText, its Text value represents the formatted Value including the placeholder characters.
- PlainText- if a RadMaskedInput control's TextMode property is set to PlainText, its Text value will hold the formatted Value but without the placeholder characters.

property. However based on our users feedback we decided to allow two-way binding to the formatted value controlled by the Text
property. This feature request was added in our PITS
