    What effect, if anything, does putting a slash in from of the field bound to the control, have? For example:

        FontFamily="Century Gothic"
        Value="{Binding /ProbationStartYear}"
        AutoFillNumberGroupSeparators="False" />

    Hello Rod,

    The RadMaskedTextInput component doesn't have any specific logic for handling the leading slash. It handles the binding as would any other WPF input component do.

    More information on the PropertyPath xaml syntax you can find here, where in the section "PropertyPath for Objects in Data Binding" under the titles "Current Record Pointer" and "Source Traversal (Binding to Hierarchies of collections)" the leading slash behavior is further described.
