    From the help page for TCustomMaskEdit.EditMask:
    !: If a ! character appears in the mask, optional characters are represented in the EditText as leading blanks. If a ! character is not present, optional characters are represented in the EditText as trailing blanks.
    : The character that follows a character is a literal character. Use this character to use any of the mask special characters as a literal in the data.
    ;: The ; character is used to separate the three fields of the mask.

    The 1 is the second part of the mask. Help file description: The second part is the character that determines whether the literal characters of a mask are saved as part of the data.
    The _ is the third part of the mask, and you might already guess where that description is: in the help files. "The third part of the mask is the character used to represent unentered characters in the mask."

    What more details do you want? If you want to know the relation to other properties/method, click the "See Also". If you want to have an overview of the defining class, click on the link with the classname. In many cases the help also lists the defining unit, related types, subtypes, etc. For classes you can also look at the heirarchy, to see how it relates to other classes.
