    The scenario is as follows:

    We have a RadMaskedInput control on our page. The control is used for date selection. We have it bound to a separate datepicker's textbox (which we have hidden in our styles). The reason is we needed a masked input so users could type and still see invalid data, whereas the datepicker by default deletes the data when invalid so the user can no longer see it.

    The problem arises when using numbers as placeholders. For example, the default placeholder we use is a '0'. When a date is entered such as "10/10/1990" the mask is applied and instead displays "11/19/9000". It strips out all of the 0's and squezes all other numbers together. This happens with all other numbers as well. If "1" is used as the placeholder, the above date would read "00/99/1111".

    Also, this just started happening when we updated from last year's version to the current 2013 Q1 release. Any help is appreciated!
