I am using the masked edit control for date entry fields and the mask appears to be altered after I close the project and reopen it in VS.NET.
I set the mask to "0#/##/####" in the properties editor, save and close the project. When I reopen the project, in VS.NET, the control displays with a mask of 00/__/____. With each subsequent open and close of the project, the Control continues to display the mask with an additional 0 in the mask. The value in the Property editor remains the same ("0#/##/####").
In the Windows forms designer generated code region of the form, the propterites look correct, but they at not rendered correctly on the screen.
Values as they appear:
Me.mskEndDate.Mask = "0#/##/####"
Me.mskEndDate.Text = "0_/__/____"
Yet on the Form, in the designer, the control appears with a mask of "00/__/____"
This issue has been fixed in a patch release after the 18.104.22.168 release
