Type: Feature Request
RegEx Mask & MaskAutoComplete

We are heavily relying on the use of RegEx masks and the MaskAutoComplete functionality in the Telerik Silverlight components. Currently we are completly rebuilding out application with Telerik Angular 2+ so we are missing this functionality.

For instance what we are trying to achieve is:

- force First letter upper case in lastname after every space in the name. (Silverlight --> Mask="([A-Z]\.)+" MaskType="RegEx" MaskAutoComplete="Optimistic")

- initials all uppercase and automaticly place a . after every letter (Silverlight --> Mask="([A-Z][a-z]+)((\s|\-)[A-Z][a-z]+)*" MaskType="RegEx" MaskAutoComplete="Optimistic")


If there is another way to achieve this in Angular 2+ with the current components that is also fine but I cannot find a way in the documentation.

Hi Toine,

Thank you for the logged feature request item.

Indeed, at the moment Kendo UI for Angular has a limited support for masked inputs. Currently we can specify a RegEx via the rules input property of a MaskedTextBox component as demonstrated in the following article:

Check the following example demonstrating how a capital Latin letter can be enforced for the first letter of the second word:

However, at the moment there does not seem to be a way that allows to auto-fill the value with some characters or transform the value.
