Visual Basic: MaskedEdit Control
See Also Example Applies To
The FormattedText property returns the string displayed in the Masked Edit control when the control doesn't have the focus. This property is not available at design time, and is read-only at run time.
If the Format property is equal to the empty string (""), this property is identical to the Text property, except that it is read-only. If the HideSelection property is set to False, the control doesn't display the formatted text when it doesn't have the focus. However, the formatted text is still available through this property.
