I am using Ix panel T10A. And I want Password Char in TextBox. I dont find any property for Password Char in TextBox. Whatever I write in Text it comes in readable format. I want to display it in asterisk (*****).
How to do this,

Hi Umesh,

Our AnalogNumeric boxes do not have the ability to do password char.

Hi Mark,

Thanks for your reply,

There should be some solution for that in scripting or third party component.
I can not say no to my customer. Please suggest some work around.

Hi Umesh,

No password char option was implemented because all the HMI security was supposed to go through the built in system. Here is one way to implement a password char AnalogNumeric Box.

You need to install the font included in the PasswordFont folder and implement the InputValueChanged method in the screen script. Set the font for the AnalogNumeric control that you will be using to input the password to the password font. When the user inputs the password that font is used and just displays '*'. Once the password in entered the value entered gets transferred to a tag and the text in the AnalogNumeric control gets set to '*'. That way the user can not copy/paste the password.

I am looking to see if there is an easier way.

With the attached project of example, on Windows operating systems, I see all character of the string until I press return and go out from first text input.
After it is replaced with asterisk.
Aren't there better solutions for that?

Thank you
