Object Type Path to MaskSaveLiteral


For the Regular and Simple mask types, a mask expression consists of control symbols (which define the type of character that should appear in a corresponding position or otherwise control user input) and literals. If the MaskSaveLiteral property is true, the edit value will store literal characters along with characters representing placeholders and data an end-user enters. If the property is false, only placeholders and user input characters are stored in the edit value.

For the RegEx mask type, the constantly displayed characters are always included in the editor’s value.
