focus

This event is fired when the maskedtextbox gets focus.
In this example, we show its value, when the widget receives focus:

<input id="maskedtextbox" />

<script type="text/javascript">
jQuery(function($) {
    $('#maskedtextbox').shieldMaskedTextBox({
        mask: "000,000.00$",
        value: "123,456.78$",
        events: {
            focus: function (e) { 
                alert(this.value());
            }
        }
    });
});
</script>
