Help with formatting data entered in a list box from a Masked textbox

Hi,

I am using three Masked input textboxes in the following format:

a. xxx-xx-xxx-xxxx
b. xxx,xxx
c. xx-xxx

When I enter the data in my textbox, for example format a, looks like 1305-98-987-7687

However when I copy the data to the listbox, it looks like 1-1305989877687

How do I modify the code below to copy the data to the list box in the following format

1- 1305-98-987-7687?  

Code:

Protected Sub ANSN_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles ANSN.Click
        C1NSN.Items.Add(C1NSNA.Text)
        C1NSN.DataBind() 'New Line
        FormatListBox()
    End Sub
    Sub FormatListBox()
        For i As Integer = C1NSN.Items.Count - 1 To 0 Step -1
         C1NSN.Items(i).Text = i + 1 & "-" & C1NSN.Items(i).ToString    
         If i Mod 2 = 0 Then
         C1NSN.Items(i).Attributes.Add("style", "background-color: Yellow")
            End If
        Next
    End Sub
