I am trying to find code for an input mask for a hyperlink field for both email and website addresses.  I was trying "mailto:" as a prefix but it was getting all garbled.  Ideally, I would like either the "mailto:" or "http://" to appear as appropriate when the text field is selected for input.

Can you help? Thanks!

this may be to simple for what you are looking for but ...
you can set the input mask property of the text box to http:/   and it will automatically appear when the control gets focus

But how do you get the MailTo to work  is there an event you must use?  so that people don't have to type MailTo:  Every Time?
