Input Mask does not save

Hi Experts,

I found the following snippet online

And I call it as
$(document).ready(function(){
    
    //Phone Mask
    $("#txtPhone").mask("(999) 999-9999 ext.99999");
    
});//document ready

Open in new window


However, when I tab out off my textbox the data is wiped. If I remove the blur event from Chrome's F12 it works, but do I comment out line 97, or will that break something else?

It appears the code has a default option (autoclear) set to true that is causing the problem. I have no idea why this was coded into the plugin but you can disable it like this

    $("#txtPhone").mask("(999) 999-9999 ext.99999", {
		autoclear: false
	});
