I'd like to change the default display prompt character for all of my masked edit text boxes to a space instead of the underscore character.  I've found that I must set a display mask as well as change the DisplayPromptChar property to a blank space. 

The only issue I'm seeing now (which isn't huge, but it would be nice to not have happen) is that when the page first renders, there are _ characters that are then removed (presumably by javascript).  Is there a way to make the edit boxes render initially with spaces instead of underscores?

Thanks!
Robert

Hi Robert,

Actually, you don't have to use the DisplayMask property in this case, it is intended for other purposes.

I think you need:

<telerik:RadMaskedTextBox  PromptChar=" " DisplayPromptChar=" "  />

If you set the DisplayMask to a sequence of spaces, you will not see the entered value when the textbox is not focused.

Let me know if I am missing something.

That did the trick.  I was missing the PromptChar attribute.

Thanks!
