    We are trying to utilise the masked edit box to provide numeric textboxes for our ui.  The numeric textboxes would include

    1. Currency Box
    2. Decimal Box
    3. Standard integer boxes

    The problems we face include the following

    When a standard numeric mask is used a "0" is always inserted in the control which when navigated too is not preselected for overwriting.  This is frustrating for the user as they have to delete this entry (in most cases) to continue inputing their number. 

    The currency box doesn't have skip literals so you have to type $ before typing in your number, this is frustring as the user wants to just start typing the number.

    Is their any workarounds for these behaviours or updates?

    Kind Regards,

    Hi Marcus Eddy,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    The described behavior for Numeric MaskType is made by design. I have to admit that in some cases this is not very convenient and we will change this in some of the next releases. Unfortunately, there is not an easy way to do this with current version. 

    I have not managed to reproduce reported Currency Symbol issue. When I use Standard MaskType and "$ 0.00" for the Mask everything works as expected. Please, elaborate further on your RadMaskedEditBox settings. I am looking forward to your reply.

    Sincerely yours,
