Namespace: DevExpress.XtraEditors.Mask

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraEditors.v20.1.dll

Declaration

public virtual bool UseMaskAsDisplayFormat { get; set; }
Public Overridable Property UseMaskAsDisplayFormat As Boolean

Property Value

Type Default Description
Boolean

false

true if the mask settings are used to format display values when the editor is not focused; false if the RepositoryItem.DisplayFormat object's settings are used instead.

Remarks

You can set the UseMaskAsDisplayFormat property to true to use the current mask settings to form the editor's display text when the editor is not focused. As a result the editor's text in edit and display mode will be identical.

If this property is set to false the editor's display text is formed according to the settings provided by the RepositoryItem.DisplayFormat property.

If the editor's MaskProperties.MaskType property is set to MaskType.None the UseMaskAsDisplayFormat property is ignored. In this case, the RepositoryItem.DisplayFormat property's settings are used to format display values.
