Hello,

 

In the demo pages (https://demos.telerik.com/aspnet-core/maskedtextbox/index), removing the value from the masked text box and then re-focusing the control places the cursor at the start of the input. This behavior does not appear to be default, as when I used a masked textbox in my project the cursor appears in the middle of the mask (wherever was clicked). I also don't see any mention of it in the demo pages or documentation. Is there a simple way of enabling this behavior?

 

I am using the current release of UI for ASP Core.

<kendo-maskedtextbox name="phone" class="form-control" mask="(999) 000-0000" value="@Model.SearchModel.Phone"></kendo-maskedtextbox>

Hi Josh,

Based on the provided Kendo UI MaskedTextBox, I conducted a few tests and the behavior exposed in the live demo is the default, built-in. When focusing on the input, the cursor is set in the begging of the input, while, upon the second click, the cursor is set at the place where the mouse was clicked. The only way that the behavior could be observed is if the re-focusing the input element is made with long mouse click and drag, which initiates the selection. This could be observed only in Chrome, which is a browser behavior and we do not have any control over it.

If you are replicating the behavior with a single click over the input element, could you please record a short video and share the exact steps for reproducing the problem.


Kind regards,

Hi Tsvetomir,

It must have been a script caching or similar issue. After going back to this it is working as expected. Thank you.
