Assigning and Getting Text from a Mask Edit Box

How do you assign and retrieve text from a mask edit box?! The online resource says to use <object>.Text;  However the compiler tells me that Text is not a member of CMSMask.  I also tried some of the other member functions such as GetText to no avail.  Does anybody have a working example of CMSMask?  This is associated with MicroSofts MSMASK32.OCX....Thanks

1)  In the resource editor, add the Mask edit control to your project.
2)  Place a masked edit control on the form
3)  Associate a variable with the control

//To get text
CString str;
str = m_ctlMaskEdit.GetText();

//To set text
m_ctlMaskEdit.SetText(_T("12-13-98"));

Make sure that the text that you are setting is a legal format.  This should work for you from an MFC based application.
