    Hi

    At the moment it isn't possible to mask a TextBox with RadInputManager. Is this planned for a further release? 
    Setting different "behaviors" like Numeric/Regex/DateInput/etc during Page Load is quite nice and having the ability to mask the TextBox as well would be something to look forward to.

    Thanks beforehand

    Hi Studach,

    A real masking behavior for a textbox requires a complex HTML rendering with several textboxes (one visible and several invisible) and also, a heavier Javascript. This defeats the purpose of RadInputManager, which aims at extending the abilities of standard textboxes while maintaining good client-side performance.

    That's why the RadInputManager's equivalent of RadMaskedTextBox is the regex behavior.
