When you need versatile data entry controls combined with strict validation, the Telerik MaskedEditBox control for Windows Forms is the perfect match to your criteria. It is an intelligent component for controlled data input, which enhances the functionality of the regular textbox by adding input validation and masks, such as date, IP Address, SSN, phone number, digits, decimals, and more.
Telerik MaskedEditBox is designed for allowing users to enter a particular type of value, and to restrict the values users can enter to that type. It automatically handles the parsing of values that the user enters and formats their values accordingly. It supports all common masks:
In this mode, time entry is not restricted to the format you’re using. Instead, the control parses the input string using a formal grammar algorithm, giving you the freedom to type in different input strings and still the control to accept them as valid values (for example, entering either “4 30” and “30 4” will we parsed to April 30).
The control is shipped with a rich set of themes that allow you to easily build slick interfaces with the look-and-feel of some of the latest Windows and Office versions. The themes can be easily switched using a single property.
Our framework also features support for custom themes, which can be built from scratch to fit your exact visual demands by using the Visual Style Builder productivity tool.
