Hi all, I'm using Text Fields for data entry, where I know the data will be in a particular format. I'd like to set a display mask on the control in such occasions. For example a textbox for entering a reference number might have a mask of __/__/__ The mask is shown as a sort of template where the user fills in the gaps. I canít see any direct support for this such as a simple property. Is there any such support for this. I see regular expressions etc, but this appears to be more for validation purposes.

Thanks for any info.

Derek Brennan.

You can listen for the key down and reset the value after formatting it.
