Getting Started

jqxMaskedInput represents a jQuery input widget which uses a mask to distinguish between proper and improper user input. You can define phone number, ssn, zip code, dates, etc. masks by setting the jqxMaskedInput mask property.
Every UI widget from jQWidgets toolkit needs its JavaScript files to be included in order to work properly.

The first step is to create html page and add links to the javascript files and css dependencies to your project. The jqxMaskedInput widget requires the following files:


The next step is to create a DIV element within the body of the html document.

The last step is to initialize the widget by adding the following script to the html document:

To call a function(method), you need to pass the method name and parameters(if any) in the jqxMaskedInput’s constructor.
    $("#jqxmaskedinput").jqxMaskedInput('maskedValue', newValue);
    
To get the result of a function(method) call, you need to pass the method name in the jqxMaskedInput’s constructor and parameters(if any).
    var value = $("#jqxmaskedinput").jqxMaskedInput('maskedValue');
    
To set a property(option), you need to pass the property name and value(s) in the jqxMaskedInput's constructor.
    $("#jqxmaskedinput").jqxMaskedInput({ mask: '#####-####' });
    
To get a property(option), you need to pass the property name to the jqxMaskedInput's constructor.
    var mask = $("#jqxmaskedinput").jqxMaskedInput('mask');
    
To bind to an event of a UI widget, you can use basic jQuery syntax. Let’s suppose that you want to know when the input value is changed. The example code below demonstrates how to bind to the ‘valuechanged’ event of jqxMaskedInput.
        // bind to jqxMaskedInput valuechanged event.
        $('#jqxmaskedinput').bind('valuechanged', function (event) {
            var value = event.args.value;
        });
    

Basic Sample

The result of the above code is:
