public bool IncludePrompt { get; set; }
member this.IncludePrompt : bool with get, set
Public Property IncludePrompt As Boolean

Property Value

true if the prompt character is used to represent the positions where no user input was provided; otherwise, false. The default is true.


The IncludePrompt and IncludeLiterals properties will determine whether prompt and literal characters appear when calling the ToString method. By setting both of these properties to false, the parsed string will represent only the characters entered by the user.
