Category: MaskedInput
Type: Feature Request
MaskedInput: Add mode / property so that Value is the same as Text and this way accepts literal symbols and placeholders ('-', "_", ".") in MaskedTextInput.
Old Name was. "Implement a feature to change the Value property based on the Text property ". However, Value is the primary property for this control and that is why we want clients to use Value property, not two-way binding of the Text property that changes the Value internally. That is why we changed the name of the feature request.

Its meaningful and clients will benefit from it. Basically clients want the literals to be included in in the VALUE. And this is meaningful only in TextInput. So new property in RadMaskedTextInput (for ex. IncludeLiteralsInValue) seems fine - Estimate 10. 

Example Scenario: 


User types 123456, Value property becomes "12--34--56" which will have the same value as the Text property.

Example Scenario:

IP Address SDK demo. Look at its code - there is converter in file and convert methods in ViewModel.cs. Both Value and Text are bound. If Value includes the dots, only 1 converter and 1 2way bingding would do the job with less code.

Hello Ramesh

We appreciate your feedback and we will consider it at the time when we include this in our road map. 

As a side note, if you have struggles with our controls or if you want to achieve a specific behavior, you can open a new support ticket from your account in our ticketing system.

we need to bind data of type string with mask (timespan with frames "00:00:00:00" of (hh:mm:ss:ff). the last 2 digit represents the frames). for this to bind, we are struggling with the latest RadMaskedTextInput. But in the previous version of RadMaskedTextBox, we had binded directly the MaskedText property without any issues

It would be very helpful to have similar or same type of behaviour

Hi Jean-Marc

Thank you for the valuable feedback. We will have it in mind when we get to the implementation of this feature.

To my point of view, it is not logical to not have the literals of the mask in the value.  Because the way it is designed now, I have to bind to the value both ways, but if I want with the literal, I have to bind the Text value as well.  It makes no sense.  IT WOULD BE MORE THAN NICE TO HAVE A BOOLEAN THAT INDICATE THAT I WANT THE LITERAL OR NOT.

Would be nice to have it so that you can bind the Text property (including the literals in the mask).

This would be valuable to me. In my use case, I want to assign a phone number format based on the location when it's entered. However, I don't want to replicate that business logic to other systems; especially, for reporting.
