How to remove the empty spaces in the WinForms MaskedEditBox?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: MaskedEditBox |
Published Date: August 10, 2015 |

Mask settings

In MaskedEditBox, the Mask property helps you to specify the display format of the MaskedEditBox value. When the mask character count is greater than the Text character count, an empty character is added at the end of the MaskedEditBox, which is the default behavior. This empty character can be removed by setting the PromptCharacterInt property to zero.

C#

//Specifies the Mask string for the MaskedEditBox
this.maskedEditBox2.Mask = "##########";
//Specifies the Text of the MaskedEditBox
this.maskedEditBox2.Text = "123";
//Removes the empty space
this.maskedEditBox2.PromptCharacterInt = 0;

 

VB

'Specifies the Mask string for the MaskedEditBox
Me.maskedEditBox2.Mask = "##########"
'Specifies the Text of the MaskedEditBox
Me.maskedEditBox2.Text = "123"
'Removes the empty space
Me.maskedEditBox2.PromptCharacterInt = 0
