MaskedTextBox.ToString Method

Note: This method is new in the .NET Framework version 2.0.

Returns a string that represents the current masked text box. This method overrides ToString.

Namespace: System.Windows.Forms
Assembly: System.Windows.Forms (in system.windows.forms.dll)

public override string ToString ()
public String ToString ()
public override function ToString () : String

Return Value

A String that contains information about the current MaskedTextBox. The string includes the type, a simplified view of the input string, and the formatted input string.

This version of the ToString method calls the base class implementation of this method, TextBoxBase.ToString, then appends the input string after processing by the mask. This method honors properties that alter the appearance of the formatted string, with the following exceptions:

  • The returned string always includes prompt and literal characters, regardless of the values of the TextMaskFormat property.

  • Password characters are ignored, so that the actual user-typed characters are returned. In other words, the values of the PasswordChar and UseSystemPasswordChar properties are ignored.
