    Default Could we have a HIDDEN PASSWORD EDITOR?

    In our programs i was wondering if we could have an EDITOR that shows "stars"
    instead of the password?
    In many real world situations the customer may have the app opened and it would
    be easy to see thier password. so i mean this-- http://prntscr.com/jfig5c

    The editor could be so that in the automation, like the combo box, instead of taking
    the description it grabs the port..in the password editor it will take the password but
    show the star instead.

    Is that easy,possible? I think it would be a useful editor.

    Sure, but it will be an either or type of thing. Either the password will be hidden or not. Easy change and I thought about doing it but didn't want to make a change like that if others were already using the editor.

    That'd be good. THX. Would it have a text validation of some sort? Like if you type a password and its all stars if you
    mis-typed what you wanted (stuck key say..) you wouldnt know..ahh, you know what i mean lol.

    No, it would just show stars when you type in the password. No validation.

    Thomas, howdy. I was confused on "...if others were already using the editor..." What do you mean?
    Is this a NEW editor to add for passwords or you will change a current editor? Im confused...no, i am haha.

    Password editor has been added. It will display * for the letters. A button will be on the left that will will show the characters if the end user clicks on it. That way the user can view the password if they forgot it. Happens to me all the time. It reverts back to the * characters when the person goes to another field on the window.


    Will be in the next update.
