How to make textboxes display: ****** when you type in them.

Postby Chromegloss55 » Tue Jan 15, 2008 7:22 pm

To make a textbox display ******* instead of the actual word (i.e when you're typing a password for Hotmail, Yahoo or whatever) use this simple code...

TextBoxObject(i).PasswordChar = "*"

Replace 'i' with the identifier of the textbox...

Hope this helps! :D
