PlaceholderText property not found on MaskedTextBox...why?

Editors for WPF Forum

According to the documentation, the MaskedTextBox derives from System.Windows.Controls.TextBox, which has a PlaceholderText property. However, when I try to set the PlaceholderText property on a MaskedTextBox it isn't found. Is there some other property or way to get this to work?

Hi Brad,

I don't believe that the core WPF TextBox control has a PlaceholderText property.  The UWP TextBox control does though.

That being said, if you set our attached shared:HintProperties.Hint property on the WPF control, it should show a hint.
