I have a edit mast extender that should display a phone number like (573) 111-5555 but instead it shows (_73) 111-5555.  

My code is shown below.  What's wrong with it.

(I need to continue to show the edit mask even when not it that field).
<asp:TextBox ID="txtNumber" runat="server"></asp:TextBox><cc1:MaskedEditExtender ID="txtNumber_MaskedEditExtender" runat="server" 
                            Enabled="True" Mask="(999) 999-9999" TargetControlID="txtNumber" ClearMaskOnLostFocus="False" MaskType="Number" ErrorTooltipEnabled="True" AutoComplete="False">
                        </cc1:MaskedEditExtender>

I think you have set the masktype to number but () are not numbers so that could be a problem. Try changing the masktype.

When I remove the masktype I get the following:
 
(735) 551-287_
in stead of (573) 555-1287.

Try changing it to String instead of removing it.

String (or string) as the masktype gives me the following runtime error:
Parser Error Message: Cannot create an object of type 'AjaxControlToolkit.MaskedEditType' from its string representation 'string' for the 'MaskType' property.
 
String is also not an option from the drop down list so I had to type it in.

Try with none then. I can think of anything else. If none does not help then its down to the control itself.

Then its down to the control itself. If you remove the (), does it work. If not then remove - as well and try.

Then its the limitation of the control that it does not handle the extra characters within the numbers field.
