Removing mask out of maskedtextbox

I need to remove the "/" out of the maskedtextbox.  I have found one solution and it returns a "False" value.

Dim casenumbernomask As String = txtCaseNumber.TextMaskFormat = MaskFormat.ExcludePromptAndLiterals

Open in new window


The setup is like this: 14/11/2001

When it saves to the db, I need it to save like this: 14112001

Thanks in advance!

Try this (untested):
Dim casenumbernomask As String = txtCaseNumber.Replace("/", "")

Open in new window

This assumes txtCaseNumber is your date with /.

I have tried that and the error I get is:
'Replace' is not a member of 'System.Windows.Forms.MaskedTextBox'.
Thanks for responding!

I have found the solution.  The issue is I do not dim casenumbernomask, instead I put :

txtCaseNumber.TextMaskFormat = MaskFormat.ExcludePromptAndLiterals

Open in new window
