Hello

I have a little problem

I am using this (https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/communitytoolkit/extensions/textboxextensions), but I do not know how to allowd like 50 characters in a tetbox

        <TextBox  
            Header="First Name"  
            ui:TextBoxExtensions.Mask="a" />  
  

if I put "a" I only accept 1 character and if I want to support 50 character, I would have to put "aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa", that is very messy xaml

    Hello,

    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A!

    I've checked the document about the TextBoxExtensions. Currently, there is no way to directly add a 50 max limitation for the Textbox Mask and you still have to put these character manually. You could submit a feature request about this in Toolkit Github: https://github.com/CommunityToolkit/WindowsCommunityToolkit/issues

    Thank you.
