I upgrade my kendo UI for MVC to 2014.1.415

I want to add rule to the masked text box.  So I copied the example from this page:
http://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/getting-started/using-kendo-with/aspnet-mvc/helpers/maskedtextbox/overview

Here is my view:
--------------------
@{
    ViewBag.Title = "MaskedTextWithRule";
}

<h2>MaskedTextWithRule</h2>


<div class="demo-section">
    <h2>Mask Input </h2>
    <ul id="fieldlist">
        <li>
            <label for="phone_number">Phone number:</label>
            @(Html.Kendo().MaskedTextBox()
                  .Name("phone_number")
                  .Mask("(999) 000-0000")
                  .Value("555 123 4567")
            )
        </li>

        <li>
            @(Html.Kendo().MaskedTextBox()
                  .Name("maskedtextbox")
                  .Rules(rules => {
                      rules.Add("~", "/[+-]/");
                  })
                  .Mask("~0000") //Set a mask with custom rule
            )
        </li>

    </ul>
</div>

<style>
    .demo-section {
        width: 300px;
        margin: 35px auto 50px;
        padding: 30px;
    }

    .demo-section h2 {
        text-transform: uppercase;
        font-size: 1.2em;
        margin-bottom: 10px;
    }

    #fieldlist
    {
        margin:0;
        padding:0;
    }

    #fieldlist li
    {
        list-style:none;
        padding:10px 0;
    }

    #fieldlist label {
        display: inline-block;
        width: 130px;
        margin-right: 5px;
        text-align: right;
    }
</style>

---------------------------------------------------

I compiled the project without problem, but when I run it, I got the following error
--------------------------------------------
Server Error in '/' Application.Compilation Error Description: An error occurred during the compilation of a resource required to service this request. Please review the following specific error details and modify your source code appropriately.

Hello Dongfen,

As it is mentioned in the exception message, the Add method accepts only System.Char type for the first parameter. The functionality is incorrectly documented. We will address the issue immediately. Check the updated documentation.
I updated your Telerik points because of the involvement.

Thank you, Georgi,

I added the text tag, and I can get to the page.
But when I tried to enter + or -, it won't take it.  It only allow 5 digit.


            @(Html.Kendo().MaskedTextBox()
                  .Name("maskedtextbox")
                  .Rules(rules => {
                      rules.Add('~', @<text>"/[+-]/"</text>);
                  })
                  .Mask("~0000") //Set a mask with custom rule
            )

Hello again Dongfen,


The Add(System.Char,System.Func<System.Object,System.Object>) method should be used when the developer wants to specify a function for the specific rule. When a RegExp is set then you will need to use the first overload. You can refer to the examples into the documentation. For your convenience I prepared a simple test project, which is attached to this page.

Thanks.
I thought I did the same thing, but it did not work at first.
I found the difference is the single quote for the first Char in Add argument.
Thanks
