Hi, I am using a MaskEdit-Cell in a GridControl with a mask for a GUID "{AAAAAAAA-AAAA-AAAA-AAAA-AAAAAAAAAA}". Can I only show the mask when the cell-value is not empty? When the user does not enter data I want to get an empty string, when the user enters a value I want to get an string with mask. How can I get this behaviour in a standalone MaskedEditBox? Regards, Christian

Hi Christian, The gridControl1.DrawCellDisplayText event can be handled and there the DisplayText can be set to empty string(“”) when the MaskEdit cell value is empty. Below is a code snippet. Please post any standalone tools’ quires in the Essential Tools forums to get the solution at the earliest. private void gridControl1_DrawCellDisplayText(object sender, GridDrawCellDisplayTextEventArgs e) { if(e.Style.HasMaskEdit && !e.Style.HasCellValue) e.DisplayText = ""; } Regards, Calvin.
