Mask Hints

A specific tooltip (mask hint) can be displayed for some mask types, informing end-users about allowed input values. The mask hint availability is controlled by the MaskSettings.ShowHints property, which can be accessed via an editor's ASPxTextBox.MaskSettings property. Mask hints might be of considerable assistance for end-users, especially when values are entered using the UP ARROW and DOWN ARROW keys, or the mouse wheel (see Keyboard Support in Mask Parts for more details).

Mask hints are supported by the following mask types:

  • Ranges

  • Enumerations
