    Property Value

    Character to use as a mask character

    The displayed mask character is a placeholder that indicates to the user where to enter characters in the control. When the control receives the focus, all unfilled positions are replaced by this displayed mask character.

    If you use special characters you want converted to characters, use Convert.ToChar"".

    This example specifies the mask to use for the mask cell.
    FarPoint.Win.Spread.CellType.MaskCellType maskcell = new FarPoint.Win.Spread.CellType.MaskCellType();
    maskcell.Mask = "[ ULLLLLLL : ULLLLLLL ]";
    maskcell.MaskChar = Convert.ToChar("X"); 
    fpSpread1.ActiveSheet.Cells[0, 0].CellType = maskcell;
    Dim maskcell As New FarPoint.Win.Spread.CellType.MaskCellType()
    maskcell.Mask = "[ ULLLLLLL : ULLLLLLL ]"
    maskcell.MaskChar = "X"
    FpSpread1.ActiveSheet.Cells(0, 0).CellType = maskcell
