MaskedTextBox.ToString MaskedTextBox.ToString MaskedTextBox.ToString MaskedTextBox.ToString Method

Definition

Returns a string that represents the current masked text box. This method overrides ToString().

public:
 override System::String ^ ToString();
public override string ToString ();
override this.ToString : unit -> string
Public Overrides Function ToString () As String

Returns

A String that contains information about the current MaskedTextBox. The string includes the type, a simplified view of the input string, and the formatted input string.

Remarks

This version of the ToString method calls the base class implementation of this method, TextBoxBase.ToString, then appends the input string after processing by the mask. This method honors properties that alter the appearance of the formatted string, with the following exceptions:

  • The returned string always includes prompt and literal characters, regardless of the values of the TextMaskFormat property.

  • Password characters are ignored, so that the actual user-typed characters are returned. In other words, the values of the PasswordChar and UseSystemPasswordChar properties are ignored.
