Has anyone had any experience using the Masked Edit Control to capture an IP address? Specifically, one that is not convienently laid out as 111.222.333.444. The mask example that ships uses ###.###.###.### as a mask, but when the user is in the control, they cannot simply type 10., as the mask accounts for a 3 digit place holder. Secondly, it would be nice, if you could simply enter 10, press the '.' key and be automatically shifted to the next segment in the mask.
You know, it is amazing what one will discover when you look at the documentation. Turns out that using 99#.99#.99#.99# will address the issue of not having to worry about octet-complete ip classes.
However, I would still be happy to hear if anyone has run across a solution of capturing the '.' key press and advancing the cursor to the next octet in the ip address mask.

The current version of the MaskedEditBox control does not support jumping to a data entry position when a literal character (. in this case) is entered. We will take this into consideration for the next update.
Thank you for your patience.
