Form Field Date Mask


As viewed in the attached file I am looking to replicate the date mask that is below and around the PDF form field and was wondering if Aspose PDF has any functionality that might produce this, or if this might simply be a graphic file added with form fields placed above it.



Hi Bill,

Thanks for contacting support.

From field mask, do you mean the gray background which appears behind date and other fields ? Please note that usually such behaviors are related to PDF viewing application. However it would be great if you can please share some further details regarding your requirement, so that we can reply accordingly.

I understand that the grey background is the actual form field. What I am actually referring to is the partition of the date with Month - Day - Year and each character having its own place separated by the vertical lines. It looks like a formatting mask that you might see in some applications, so I was wondering if / how this could be achieved.
