.NET MAUI MaskedEntry Prompt Character

The MaskedEntry exposes a PromptChar(char) property, which represents a symbol (char) for any mask position that the user has not filled in yet. The default PromptChar value is _ (underscore).

Setting the IPMaskedEntry

<telerik:RadIPMaskedEntry AutomationId="ipMask"/>

Setting the TextMaskedEntry

<telerik:RadTextMaskedEntry Mask="LLLLL" AutomationId="textMaskTextOnly"/>


To change the default prompt character, set the PromptChar(char) property.

IPMaskedEntry with PromptChar="#"

<telerik:RadIPMaskedEntry PromptChar="#" AutomationId="ipMaskChangedPropmtChar"/>

TextMaskedEntry with PromptChar=" "

<telerik:RadTextMaskedEntry Mask="(000) 000-000" PromptChar=" " AutomationId="textMaskNumbersOnly"/>
