    Is there a way to format a text being edited of RadNumericUpDown text? 

    For example, to show thousands white-space separator like 1 000 when user in a textbox actually is entering 1000

    GridViewDataColumn has DataFormatString property which formats entered text after edit is finished, but we want to format it dynamically during editing when textbox focus is not lost and user keeps typing

    Hi Vladimir,

    Currently, applying such string format is not supported by RadNumericUpDown. This is logged as a feature request, but is not yet planned for development. You can track the relevant item in our Feedback Portal: Provide an option to set custom StringFormat for the Value of RadNumericUpDown when not in edit mode.

    As an alternative, I can suggest you using the RadMaskedNumericInput component as it exposes the FormatString property for such purposes. Would this be feasible for you?

    Yes, Stefan, 


    RadMaskedNumericInput is what we replaced with and it worked for us.


    Thanks a lot
