    The MaskedTextBox is missing some features of a regular TextBox:

    • adornments 
    • validation icons
    • clearButton / clearButtonIcon
    • placeholder
    • selectOnFocus
    • required validation

    I think it would be logical if a MaskedTextBox should be a TextBox with mask functionality.  All input controls should be as consistent as possible.


    Actually, the same question applies to the following input controls: 

    • kendo-numerictextbox
    • kendo-autocomplete
    • kendo-combobox
    • kendo-dropdownlist
    • kendo-multiselect
    • kendo-textarea


    Could this be improved please?

    Hi Johan,

    Indeed, the provided feedback makes sense. We do try to provide the same features for all Input components that can be reused. However, the DropDown components are more different in their implementation design and that is why providing the same features across all dropdowns may be tricky. I have passed the provided feedback to the designated developers and we will hold an internal discussion on the topic. Thank you for the provided feedback once again. We will track the demand for the following feature request and eventually add it to our future development plans:

    Please let me know in case any further information or assistance is required for this case.
