    Hi all,

    I have a decimal field that I have bound to a MaskedTextbox. I have made the mask '999.99'. If I enter ' 45.77' I can see that 45.77 is saved in my database. When I refresh the screen and display the values again I see that '457.7 ' is shown in the MaskedTextbox. How do I get this to work properly and re-dispplay ' 45.77"?

    Hello Steven,

    MaskedTextBox works only with string values, hence the "45.77" value is formatted as string (from left to right) and that is why the displayed value is "457.7".

    In order to accomplish your goal, you will need to pad the value before setting it to the widget. In other words, you will need to create " 45.77" (notice the space) value before setting to the widget.
