dynamically show/hide a password


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys, 

Hope you're fine today!

I'd like to create a small GUI that, when clicking a button, the password set in the GUICtrlCreateInput is revealed and when the click is released, the password is hidden again. W8/10 style in fact...

Here's what I have so far:

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

Opt("GUIOnEventMode", 1)


While 1

Func f_RemedyUpdate()
    $gMailCreds = GUICreate("SEE CHECKLISTS", 300, 140)
    GUISetFont(8.5, 700, 0)
    GUICtrlCreateLabel("Password required for your account" , 5, 10)
    GUICtrlCreateLabel("Your Password:", 10, 70, 100, 30)
    $g_PassInput = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 110, 66, 150, 20, $ES_PASSWORD)
    GUICtrlSetColor(-1, 0x800080)
    $g_ShowPassButton =  GuiCtrlCreateButton ("", 270, 67, 16, 16, $BS_ICON)    
    GUICtrlSetImage(-1, "C:\eye.ico")
    GuiCtrlSetOnEvent ($g_ShowPassButton, "f_ShowPassword") 
    $g_SubmitBtn = GUICtrlCreateButton ("Submit", 120, 100, -1, -1,  $BS_DEFPUSHBUTTON)
    GUICtrlSetOnEvent(-1, "f_SendMail")
    GUISetOnEvent($GUI_EVENT_CLOSE, "_exit")

Func f_ShowPassword()
    $s_PWD = GuiCtrlRead ($g_PassInput)
    If $s_PWD = "" Then 
        Msgbox (64, "Your password", "You did not type any password")
        Msgbox (64, "Your Password", "You typed --> " & $s_PWD & " <-- as password.")

I've enclosed the small ico file I'm using 

Thanks in advance for any help provided

Solution has been found, even if it's not "dynamic", this will do the job. Thanks for pointing that me out :)


Thanks but all examples are shown with Switch...Case mode...

And I don't know how to integer this within a OnEvent script.

Maybe you could help?

Thanks :)
