So, I made a checkbox


GLOBAL $PassStart = IniRead("Config.ini","Config","Password","Default Value")

$Input2 = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 40, 64, 249, 21, BitOR($GUI_SS_DEFAULT_INPUT,$ES_PASSWORD))

$Checkbox2 = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Show Password", 40, 136, 153, 17)


While 1
    $nMsg = GUIGetMsg()
    Switch $nMsg
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
        Case $Checkbox2
            If GUICtrlRead($CheckBox2) = $GUI_CHECKED Then


and I would like to make it so it shows the hidden password in plaintext, while still keeping the data recieved? I know a nooby way to do this, which would be to I guess make another InputLabel then load $PassStart, but I think that's not a good way to do this, and there must be an easier way?

There certainly is an easier way:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <EditConstants.au3>

Global $PassStart = IniRead("Config.ini", "Config", "Password", "Default Value")

$hGUI = GUICreate("Test", 500, 500)

$cInput = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 10, 10, 200, 20, BitOR($GUI_SS_DEFAULT_INPUT, $ES_PASSWORD))

$cCheck = GUICtrlCreateCheckbox("Show Password", 10, 50, 150, 20)

GUICtrlSetData($cInput, $PassStart)


;Retrieve the ASCII value of the default password char
$sDefaultPassChar = GUICtrlSendMsg($cInput, $EM_GETPASSWORDCHAR, 0, 0)

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
        Case $cCheck

            If GUICtrlRead($cCheck) = $GUI_CHECKED Then
                GUICtrlSendMsg($cInput, $EM_SETPASSWORDCHAR, 0, 0)
                GUICtrlSetData($cCheck, "Show Password")
                GUICtrlSendMsg($cInput, $EM_SETPASSWORDCHAR, $sDefaultPassChar, 0)
                GUICtrlSetData($cCheck, "Hide Password")

            GUICtrlSetState($cInput, $GUI_FOCUS)


Please ask if you have any questions.
