Dear John Atten, First I would like to thank you for the Nullable Mask Text Box, I quaite new in C#.
As you initially create a Textbox question, you are given the option to choose from Number, Email, Percent and Date (either MM/DD/YYYY or DD/MM/YYYY) as the type of validation.
These choices will automatically apply answer formatting that can be adjusted from the Validation tab.
When using Textbox questions, often times you'll want to validate the data your respondents enter.
It makes analyzing, reporting and then acting on your data easier when it all conforms to certain formatting.
