    I'd like to be able to use a masked input control to allow the user to enter a hexadecimal number representing a color value (ARGB) e.g. #FF445566 or 0x445566. Is there some way I can use one of the mask controls to achieve this?

    More specifically I want to link this to a RadColorPicker control, so that they can either select a color from the picker or type in the exact value they want.

    Hello Pete,

    Can you check out the RadColorEditor control? It allows for selecting a color from a palette or typing a hex value or RGB values directly. 

    As for the masked input controls, there isn't an out of the box way to achieve the desired behavior. You would have to convert the entered text and create a Color object, which you can pass to the SelectedColor property of the RadColorPicker. 

    I hope you find this information helpful. Let me know, if I can be of any further assistance.
