Property Value

Type: System.ComponentModel::MaskedTextProvider^

A masking language provider of type MaskedTextProvider.

The MaskedTextProvider property defines the mask-parsing engine and the masking language used by the MaskedTextBox control. The default provider is the System.ComponentModel::MaskedTextProvider class; however, a custom provider can be specified using the MaskedTextBox(MaskedTextProvider^) constructor.

MaskedTextProvider cannot be set directly. However, setting some of the properties of MaskedTextBox—such as Mask, AllowPromptAsInput, AsciiOnly, and Culture—may internally cause the creation of a new MaskedTextProvider.
