Hi nauna,

Check this sample. now take its reference.


Enter Number :<asp:TextBox ID="txtNumer" runat="server" MaxLength="13" /><br />
<asp:Button ID="btnSubmit" Text="Submit" runat="server" OnClick="OnSubmit" /><br /><br />
<asp:Label ID="lblCard" Text="" runat="server" />



protected void OnSubmit(object sender, EventArgs e)
    string Cardnumber = txtNumer.Text.Trim();
    string firstDigits = Cardnumber.Substring(0, 5);
    string middleDigits = Cardnumber.Substring(5, 7);
    string lastDigits = Cardnumber.Substring(Cardnumber.Length - 1, 1);
    string firstMask = new String('X', Cardnumber.Length - middleDigits.Length);
    string lastMask = new String('X', Cardnumber.Length - 12);
    string maskedString = string.Concat(firstMask, middleDigits, lastMask);
    lblCard.Text = maskedString;


Protected Sub OnSubmit(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs)
    Dim Cardnumber As String = txtNumer.Text.Trim()
    Dim firstDigits As String = Cardnumber.Substring(0, 5)
    Dim middleDigits As String = Cardnumber.Substring(5, 7)
    Dim lastDigits As String = Cardnumber.Substring(Cardnumber.Length - 1, 1)
    Dim firstMask As String = New String("X", Cardnumber.Length - middleDigits.Length)
    Dim lastMask As String = New String("X", Cardnumber.Length - 12)
    Dim maskedString As String = String.Concat(firstMask, middleDigits, lastMask)
    lblCard.Text = maskedString
