- Mask: The format in which the value should be entered in the text box can be set using this property.
- Input Mode: This feature allows the MaskEdit text box to act as an input text box or password text box.
- Watermark Text:The MaskEdit text box supports watermarking. A watermark is background text that appears in the text box without interfering with user text entry or the readability of the text entered. It can be used to display a ready instruction or other important information for the user. It appears automatically before the text is entered and disappears once the user begins entering text.
