    Hi, I have a masked texbox (supplying a job code) and input manager on a page. The masked textbox has the following mask 'QJLL<0..9><0..9><0..9><0..9>',  so I want the letters QJ followed by 2 uppercase letters and 4 numbers. How can I make sure that the user has actually entered something for the job code masked textbox? The input manager is successfully validating other textboxes on the page, but I cannot see how to get it to work for the masked textbox.

    Although 'L' in the mask signifies a required character, nothing seems to fire when the user simply tabs to the next control on the page instead of supplying the job code.

    I don't really want to resort to a custom validator as this is not consistent with the way the rest of the page works.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Hi Jonathan Simmons,

    Please note the following quote from our documentation:

    "The RadInputManager offers an easy and intuitive way to extend a standard text box, and without any extra custom code, introduce much functionality, normally related to a Telerik RadInput control"

    Based on the above, I am afraid that RadInputManager can not be used to validate other RadInput controls. As a workaround you can use a RegularExpressionValidator as demonstrated in this online example:
