MaskedEditBox and SelectAll

Hi, On Entering my MaskedEditBox control, I want to SelectAll the whole text/mask in the control. So I added a delegate for the "Enter" event and did m_MaskEditCtrl.SelectAll() in OnEnter, but this did not select the whole text. Infact there was no selection at all. What am I doing wrong? Here is the codesnippet: this.Enter += new EventHandler(OnEnter); private void OnEnter(object sender, EventArgs e) { this.SelectAll(); }

Hi, You could accomplish this by handling the MaskedEditBox''s GotFous event instead as shown in code below : this.maskedEditBox1.GotFocus += new EventHandler(MaskedEditBox_GotFocus); private void MaskedEditBox_GotFocus(object sender, EventArgs args) { this.maskedEditBox1.SelectAll(); } Please refer to the test sample attached that illustrates this, and let me know if this works for you.

Thanks that works. I have other derived editcontrols which SelectAll in Enter event. This is the only control in which I selectall in GotFocus event. 1) Why, is this your bug? 2) For consistency can I do selectall for other edit controls like CurrencyEdit, DoubleTextBox also in GotFocus event. Or is that a bad idea?

Hi, Thanks for the update. 1. Yes, this appears to be a shortcoming in our MaskedEditBox control and we will address this issue in our future releases. 2. You could use either of the 2 events - GotFocus or Enter for our other Editor controls. We appreciate your interest in Syncfusion products. Regards, Guru Patwal Syncfusion, Inc.
