Thanks for the Tips, they are very useful for some of my entries!.

About the question, for some entries is Mandatory for me to do the
auto correcting input, for example a Amount input with automatic
Thouthands  separator (They must apear but you don't need to write
them, and need to delete digits too).

Another thing is that I can't force a entry to work in overwrite mode,
mandatory for some other entries (I wrote a handler for TextInserted
and Deleted to emulate that and disabled the entry input when
toggle-overwrite event happens ).
