The CutCopyMaskFormat property determines how text, selected within the MaskedTextBox control, is interpreted when it is copied to the clipboard or retrieved through the SelectedText property. Specifically, it determines whether literal characters, prompt characters, or both are included when selected text is accessed. When prompt characters are excluded, they are transformed into spaces in the copied string.

NoteNote

The TextMaskFormat property serves a similar purpose with respect to how the Text property is interpreted.
