MaskTextBox and Paste - Spaces, tabs & V?

Editors for WPF Forum

I'm attempting to paste into a MaskedTextBox with the following mask="( [A-Z])?[0-9]{6,10}".

If the paste is a number or a number with a A-Z, it works fine, but if it has whitespace of more than one letter in front of the letter, it does not paste.

I attempted to intercept the space on the PreviewKeyUp event (set e.handled=true for space or tab), but I seem to be getting the V (from CTRL-V) instead of the pasted text.

Hi David,

The only chance you have to change the clipboard contents would be to create a custom class that derives from MaskedTextBox and override OnExecutedCommand. If the e.Command is ApplicationCommands.Paste, then you'd need to update the clipboard and then call the base method.
