<

!
Causes the input mask to display from right to left, rather than from left to right. Characters typed into the mask always fill it from left to right. You can include the exclamation point anywhere in the input mask.

Causes the character that follows to be displayed as a literal character. Used to display any of the characters listed in this table as literal characters.
(For example, \A is displayed as just A.)

"Literal"
You can also enclose any literal string in double quotation marks.

Password
Setting the InputMask property to the word Password creates a password entry text box. Any character typed in the text box is stored as the character but is displayed as an asterisk (*).

If you don't like the error message that appears by default i.e.:
"The value you entered isn't appropriate for the input mask '!\(999") "000\-0000;;_' specified for this field"
