Exceptions generate a user message, so keep in mind that what you see with the debugger is more than what the user would see. If you need to use a picture mask, you can try something like...
Your current mask requires exactly two digits after the decimal point, so 1.1 is invalid based on this mask.
Users have been getting exceptions, these have been captured by MadExcept and registered in our Mantis database.
Want to stop this, hence using masks.
What mask would I use if I wanted a fixed number of decimal places?
