Masks can be used within DataFlex Windows application to:


As a convenience, you may assign these masks to fields in your Data Dictionary. When one of these fields is used by a windows control that supports masking (e.g. dbForm, dbList, dbGrid), this mask will be automatically applied to the control.

Field masks are created by assigning a mask-type (Field_Mask_Type) and an optional mask-string (Field_Mask).
