TextInputMaskSettings.SaveLiteral Property

Specifies whether constantly displayed mask characters (literals) are included in an editor’s value, for the Simple and Regular mask types. This is a dependency property.

Namespace: DevExpress.UI.Xaml.Editors

Assembly: DevExpress.UI.Xaml.Editors.v21.2.dll

Declaration

public bool SaveLiteral { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Description
Boolean

true, if the constantly displayed mask characters are included in an editor’s value; otherwise, false.

Remarks

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 SaveLiteral property is set to true, the edit value will store literal characters along with characters representing placeholders and data an end-user enters. If the property is set to 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.
