Value

To set a predefined value inside the MaskedEntry, define the Value(string) property. It returns the user input without the formatting characters.

TextMaskedEntry with Value property

Define the control:

<telerik:RadTextMaskedEntry x:Name="textMaskedEntry" Mask="aaaa" Value="ABCD"/>
this.textMaskedEntry.Value = "Test";

Add the namespace:

xmlns:telerik="clr-namespace:Telerik.Maui.Controls;assembly=Telerik.Maui.Controls"

Null Value Support

By default, the MaskedEntry control doesn't allow you to set null to its Value property. Instead, the null value in the NumericMaskedEntry is coerced to 0. To allow null values, you have to set the AllowNullValue property to True.

NumericMaskedEntry with null value support

Define the control:

<telerik:RadNumericMaskedEntry x:Name="allowNullValuesTextMaskedEntry" Value="5"  AllowNullValue="True"/>

Add the namespace:

xmlns:telerik="clr-namespace:Telerik.Maui.Controls;assembly=Telerik.Maui.Controls"

For the MaskedEntry Value example, go to the SDKBrowser Demo Application and navigate to MaskedEntry -> Features category.
