We need MaskedTextBox to accept uppercase letters only, which can be achieved by defining custom mask rule for it. However, that requires the user to enter uppercase letters manually. Can a feature request be made for the functionality that even if user enters lowercase letters, it can be displayed as uppercase letters?
Example use case of this feature - Postal codes input is one of the example use cases. It requires letters to be uppercase, and when user provides lowercase input, it either needs to be processed separately to convert to uppercase or the input gets ignored with default behavior.
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.
MaskedTextBox, there is no support "placeholder" text in the control prior to user input. It would be nice if, instead of showing the mask, it could show placeholder text like native HTML input box does until you begin typing then it would show the mask prompts. Full support for styling the placeholder text using the ::placeholder pseudo class would also be required. https://www.telerik.com/kendo-angular-ui/components/inputs/maskedtextbox/
