Value Mode in UWP Masked TextBox (SfMaskedEdit)

SfMaskedEdit allows you to format the characters in the Value property in a mask scenario (when the Mask property is set). By default, the Value property holds your input characters, prompt characters and the literals defined in the mask. You can modify this and allow the Value property to hold the characters without prompt and literals by setting the ValueMaskFormat property of the control. The Value in the SfMaskedEdit is formatted by any one of the following formatting enum values:

  • ExcludePromptAndLiterals
  • IncludePrompt
  • IncludeLiterals
  • IncludePromptAndLiterals

ExcludePromptAndLiterals

The Value property returns only the text entered by the user. It does not include prompt and literals characters.

Example

<Input:SfMaskedEdit x:Name=sfMaskedEdit Width="255" Height="50" MaskType="Simple" Mask="(000) 000-0000" ValueMaskFormat="ExcludePromptAndLiterals"/>

<Label Content="{Binding ElementName=sfMaskedEdit,Path=Value}" Width="230" Height="26"/ >
SfMaskedEdit maskededit = new SfMaskedEdit();

maskededit.MaskType=MaskType.Simple;

maskededit.Mask="(000) 000-0000";

maskededit.ValueMaskFormat=ValueMaskFormat.ExcludePromptAndLiterals;

Label label = new Label();

maskededit.ValueChanged += SfMaskedEdit_ValueChanged; 

private void SfMaskedEdit_ValueChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    label.Content = maskededit.Value;
}

label.Content = maskededit.Value;
