I am using the MaskEdBox to capture a date.
If I use a format mm/dd/yyyy, the data ends up formatted the way I want. But as soon as I add the mask 99/99/9999 so the user does not have to key the /, the format no longer operates. How can I accomplish both?

Thanks for trying, but I have tried this..... it does not work.... whether I read the Text, ClipText or FormattedText value the _ PromptChar remains and prevents the format function from operating......
