<syncfusion:SfMaskedEdit x:Name="maskedEdit" Mask="\w+" MaskType="RegEx" PasswordChar="*"  />

maskedEdit.Mask = @"\w+";
maskedEdit.MaskType = MaskType.RegEx;
maskedEdit.PasswordChar = '*';

Password Delay

When providing password character, you can show the typed character with some delay using the EnablePasswordDelay property. When enabling the EnablePasswordDelay property, the typed character will be displayed for a few seconds before it is converted to the password character.

<syncfusion:SfMaskedEdit x:Name="maskedEdit" Mask="\w+" MaskType="RegEx" PasswordChar="*" EnablePasswordDelay="True" />
SfMaskedEdit maskedEdit = new SfMaskedEdit();
maskedEdit.Mask = @"\w+";
maskedEdit.MaskType = MaskType.RegEx;
maskedEdit.PasswordChar = '*';
maskedEdit.EnablePasswordDelay = true;

Delay password character

NOTE

The default value of the EnablePasswordDelay property is false.

Password Delay Duration

When “PasswordDelay” is enabled, you can handle the duration of the displaying typed character using the PasswordDelayDuration property.

<syncfusion:SfMaskedEdit x:Name="maskedEdit" Mask="\w+" MaskType="RegEx" PasswordChar="*" EnablePasswordDelay="True" PasswordDelayDuration="2" />
SfMaskedEdit maskedEdit = new SfMaskedEdit();
maskedEdit.Mask = @"\w+";
maskedEdit.MaskType = MaskType.RegEx;
maskedEdit.PasswordChar = '*';
maskedEdit.EnablePasswordDelay = true;
maskedEdit.PasswordDelayDuration = 2;
