    I'm trying to use the RadMaskedTextBox. What I need to do is to allow the user to enter 3 different formats.

    Below are examples




    If he enters 132 then there is nothing different but if he types in 1234 then as soon as he enters 4, I need to display the dash. It is the same for 7. I can't use a validator as I need it on the entry and not when he is validating the page.

    I thought about using a mask but I don't want to display the dash when the page loads in case he only types in 3 digits. I thought about a regular expression but I don't know how to implement only when the user is typing and not validating.

    Maybe the RadMaskedTextBox is not the right control to use.

    Thank you for your help.

    Hello Elisabeth,

    I am afraid this functionality is not provided out-of-box. You will need to use the client events of the input to implement your logic ( OnValueChanged event for instance ).

    I hope this helps.

    Hi Eyup,

    thanks for your reply.

    I ended up using OnKeyPress and OnValueChanged and it works fine.
