    Hello Kumar,


    Another way to accomplish same functionality is by using RadTextBox instead of RadMaskedTextBox.
    Set the MaxLength to limit the letters in textbox.
    In the OnKeyPress event, check for whether the typed letter is not integer or symbol- the documentation will help.


    Hope this suggestion helps.

    Hi shinu,

    Thank for Your Reply,
    But my requirement is not to limit the characters(MAx Length) i want to write some text before the previous text

    For ex:
    first time i have enter 123,the textbox(RadMaskedTextBox) have 123 now,
    second time i have enter 456 just before 1 by keeping mouse at before 1 i want to write 456123,but actually it is overriding the 123 and displaying 456 Only.

    Hi Kumar,

    The described behavior is expected for the RadMaxteTextBox control due to the input nature. For example if you have set masked with three numbers and three letters after that in your scenario it will not be able to move the numbers into the letters places. This is the default control behavior and it could not be overcome.


    All the best,
