    Hello Eric,

    There is no easy way to create such mask. You have to list all possible symbols one by one. Sample code is shown below:
    <telerik:RadMaskedTextBox ID="RadMaskedTextBox1" runat="server" AllowEmptyEnumerations="true">

    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        uint maxCharacters = 10;
        RadMaskedTextBox1.Mask = GenerateCustomMask(maxCharacters);
    private string GenerateCustomMask(uint maxCharacters)
        uint startChar = '0';
        uint endChar = 'z';
        string outMask = "";
        StringBuilder mask = new StringBuilder();
        for (uint i = startChar; i <= endChar; i++)
            if (Char.IsLetterOrDigit((char)i))
            else continue;
            if (i < endChar)
        for (uint i = 0; i < maxCharacters; i++)
            outMask += mask.ToString();
        return outMask;

    Note that you may have a noticeable performance degradation on the client if you have too much symbols.
