Code snippets are a hidden gem in Visual Studio that most of us do not pay much attention to. Utilizing them correctly can increase productivity when we have a lot to code. In Visual Studio, code snippets are available for multiple programming languages e.g. C#, F#, XML, HTML, CSS, Python, etc. They are extremely useful when we have a bunch of boiler plate code for our properties, constructors, bindable properties, etc.

There are many ways to implement a mask. For maximum configurability, you would use Regex, however for most simple cases, we can implement something much easier.
