[patch][cla] InputMask for dijit.form.TextBox / dijit.form.ValidationTextBox

Reported by: Florian Owned by:

is there a chance to implement support for input-masks with dijit.form.TextBox? / dijit.form.ValidationTextBox?, e.g. like in meioMask (

With an input-mask like "00.00.0000", the user for example could input a date "09.06.2011" (german format) as "09062011" (or even better as "090611" in a DateTextBox? with constraint fullYear = false), and the dots would automatically be inserted when typing.

For the patch in comment 4:

I would recommend adding a pull request at via the contributing guidelines at

For what it's worth, your approach is similar to what our team has done for this (listen for input events, and only allow the event to happen if the new value entered is valid).

One issue I see with your patch is that it expected _partialre, but this is only defined for ValidationTextBox?, and not for TextBox?. It would also help to have some source code comments, and some tests added, before this is considered for 1.11.

This is probably a worthwhile addition since it's such a common pattern, if anyone has time/interest in refining a PR for it.
