can NumericTextBox be used with USA 5-digit zipcodes (actually a string of digits not a number) that can begin with leading zero?

    US zipcodes come in two varieties, a 5-digit code (e.g. "90210") and a 5-digit-hyphen-4-digit code (e.g. "19063-2345").   I am interested in the former.  

    Both formats can begin with a leading zero, e.g. Princeton NJ zipcode is "08540".

    Can the NumericTextBox  be made to preserve the leading zero, and to display the value as a string of five digits without commas, decimal points?

    I'm looking to adapt the NumericTextBox into a masked text box that accepts a string of five digits.
    Does KendoUI have a masked text box that I've overlooked?

    Hello Tim,

    In general, the NumericTextBox widget is not designed to support such behavior. When user focus the widget, its Number value will be converted to string and put into the input element. As you probably know, the Number object does not perists the leading zeros. Basically, you can accomplish something like this using the NumericTextBox.
