Hello Tom,

Based on the information I have so far, I can say that Test Studio has support for RadMaskedTextBox control and has the necessary methods to input text. You need to reference our assembly "Telerik.WebAii.Controls.Html.dll" in your project. Please explore the API reference here

In case you want to automate actions against Windows Forms MaskedTextBox control, I have to tell you that this Windows Forms is not supported by out product.

I hope the above information is helpful to you. Please do not hesitate to contact us again, if you need further assistance or you have follow up questions.

Thank you for replying.  As part of this question, I should have asked was I am in the process of using the Free Testing Framework to write automation tests against our WPF Application.   As a part of this process, I need to read/retrieve a value from a Masked TextBox control.   When I try to retrieve the value, I only get the masked text and not the actual value the user has previously entered.

Could you share with me the best way to retrieve data back from a masked text box?

Thank you.

Hi Tom,

Thank you for sharing additional details about the test scenario that you want to automate.

As I understand, you are using the WinForms control MaskedTextBox in a WPF application. The Telerik Testing Framework supports web and WPF applications. Since the MaskedTextBox is actually a WinForms control, I am sorry to tell you that it is not supported by the testing framework.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation in this discussion.
