The masked edit control extends the functionality of the Windows edit control. The masked edit control is able to validate typed characters against the specified mask and display them according to the specified template. You can define your own mask for telephone number, serial number or other displaying data, as well as the default string which will be displayed. You can put a restriction on the usage of defined characters. The control converts lowercase letters into uppercase and vice versa, as the standard edit control does.  

Masked Edit Control

Sample code:

CBCGMaskEdit m_wndPhoneNumber;
		_T(" ddd  ddd dd dd"),	// The mask string
		_T("(___) ___-__-__"),	// Literal, "_" char = character entry
		_T(' '));				// Default char
m_wndPhoneNumber.SetValidChars(NULL);	// Valid string characters
m_wndPhoneNumber.SetWindowText(_T("(123) 123-12-12"));
