<Style TargetType="telerik:RadMaskedNumericInput">
          <Setter Property="FontWeight" Value="Normal" />
          <Setter Property="Width" Value="100" />
          <Setter Property="TextMode" Value="PlainText" />

          <Setter Property="SelectionOnFocus" Value="CaretToEnd"/>
          <Setter Property="HorizontalContentAlignment" Value="Left"/>
          <Setter Property="input:MaskedInputExtensions.Maximum" Value="99999"/>
          <Setter Property="Mask" Value=""/>
</Style>

The caret is always placed after the fist number when the control is on focus.
I am using 2013 Q3 version

Hi Joel,

You are right about this issue - the SelectionOnFocus does not work well if the Mask is "". However, if you need the caret to be placed at the end of the text in this scenario, you can try the following:
  • Remove the SelectionOnFocus setter.
  • Add this setting:
<Setter Property="maskedInput:MaskedInputExtensions.CaretToEndOfTextOnFocus" Value="True"/>
where maskedInput is defined like so:
xmlns:maskedInput="clr-namespace:Telerik.Windows.Controls.MaskedInput;assembly=Telerik.Windows.Controls.Input"

Please let us know if this helps you proceed further.

No, it does not work.
I have ported your project to VS2010.

Hello Joel,

We tested this more precisely and it appears that the logic of this properly is implemented only for MaskedTextInput. We logged a related item in our FeedBackPortal. As a workaround you can use MaskedTextInput instead of Numeric (and bind its value to double proeprty with Converter) or use the GotFocus event handler in order to place the SelectionStart (caret position properly).

As a workaround, i have implemented something similar to this post:
http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1647815/how-to-add-a-blend-behavior-in-a-style-setter

<UserControl.Resources>
       <helper:Triggers x:Key="putCaretToEnd" x:Shared="False">
           <i:EventTrigger EventName="GotFocus">
               <helper:PutCaretToEndAction/>
           </i:EventTrigger>
       </helper:Triggers>
 
       <Style x:Key="maskedNumInputStyle" TargetType="telerik:RadMaskedNumericInput">
           <Setter Property="FontWeight" Value="Normal" />
           <Setter Property="Width" Value="100" />
           <Setter Property="TextMode" Value="PlainText" />
           <Setter Property="IsClearButtonVisible" Value="True"/>
           <Setter Property="AllowSkipPlaceholders" Value="False"/>
           <Setter Property="AutoFillNumberGroupSeparators" Value="False"/>
           <Setter Property="HorizontalContentAlignment" Value="Left"/>
           <Setter Property="Mask" Value=""/>
           <!-- The CaretToEnd value is not working for SelectionOnFocus-->
           <!--<Setter Property="SelectionOnFocus" Value="CaretToEnd"/>-->
           <Setter Property="helper:SupplementaryInteraction.Triggers" Value="{StaticResource putCaretToEnd}"/>
       </Style>
   </UserControl.Resources>
