Convert Text In Labels To Asterisks For Passwords

6 posts in this topic

If I can get this one little thing solved (Convert text in a label to asterisks), the program will be completed and be available in scripts and scraps.

Thanks to all who have helped me get this far.

:)

Did you try $ES_PASSWORD?

GUICtrlCreateLabel('Text', X, Y, Width, Height, $ES_PASSWORD)

Yes, but my program reads its text from an input box and puts it into the label...

The style doesn't work with labels

You're right, and I'm too tired to find the right solution :)... but here is a work around till it happens.
#include <guiconstants.au3>
Global $INPUT1_2_LABEL1_B4 = ''
$MAIN = GUICreate('main', 120, 100)
$INPUT1 = GUICtrlCreateInput('', 10, 10, 100, 20, $ES_PASSWORD)
$LABEL1 = GUICtrlCreateLabel('', 10, 35, 100, 20)
$BUTTON = GUICtrlCreateButton('TESTIT', 10, 60, 100, 30)
GUICtrlSetFont($LABEL1, 14, 400, '', 'ARIAL BOLD')


GUISetState()

While 1
    $MSG = GUIGetMsg()
    If $MSG = - 3 Then Exit
    If $MSG = $BUTTON Then
        CONVERTTEXT($INPUT1, $LABEL1)
        MsgBox(0, 'Test', 'This is only a test' & @CR & _
        'Using the $INPUT1_2_LABEL1_B4 variable that stored the information' & @CR & _
        'The label is: ' & $INPUT1_2_LABEL1_B4)
    EndIf
WEnd

Func CONVERTTEXT($v_INPUT2READ, $v_CONTROLLABEL)
    $INPUT1_2_LABEL1_B4 = GUICtrlRead($v_INPUT2READ)
    Local $s_Store = ''
    For $i_Count = 1 To StringLen($INPUT1_2_LABEL1_B4)
        $s_Store = $s_Store & Chr(149)
    Next
    GUICtrlSetData($v_CONTROLLABEL, $s_Store)
EndFunc

Using Gloabal for the variable $INPUT1_2_LABEL1_B4, you can use that as instead of GUICtrlRead() for the label, try the example out see if it will suit your needs till someone has the "right" solution.

I tried using Global Const $EM_SETPASSWORDCHAR = 0xCC and GUICtrlSendMsg() but I couldn't get it to work right for some reason.

Anyway I got to looking at it and this made more sense:

#include <guiconstants.au3>

$MAIN = GUICreate('main', 120, 100)
$INPUT1 = GUICtrlCreateInput('', 10, 10, 100, 20)
$OUTPUT1 = GUICtrlCreateInput('', 10, 35, 100, 20, BitOR($WS_DISABLED, $ES_PASSWORD), $WS_EX_TRANSPARENT)
$BUTTON = GUICtrlCreateButton('TESTIT', 10, 60, 100, 30)

GUISetState()

While 1
    $MSG = GUIGetMsg()
    If $MSG = - 3 Then Exit
    If $MSG = $BUTTON Then
        GUICtrlSetData($OUTPUT1, GUICtrlRead($INPUT1))
    EndIf
WEnd

EDIT:

Or another type of output could be:

#include <guiconstants.au3>

$MAIN = GUICreate('main', 120, 75)
$INPUT1 = GUICtrlCreateInput('', 10, 10, 100, 20)
$BUTTON = GUICtrlCreateButton('TESTIT', 10, 35, 100, 30)

GUISetState()

While 1
    $MSG = GUIGetMsg()
    If $MSG = - 3 Then Exit
    If $MSG = $BUTTON Then
        $INPUTREAD = GUICtrlRead($INPUT1)
        GUICtrlDelete($INPUT1)
        GUICtrlSetState($BUTTON, $GUI_DISABLE)
        GUICtrlCreateInput($INPUTREAD, 10, 10, 100, 20, BitOR($WS_DISABLED, $ES_PASSWORD), $WS_EX_TRANSPARENT)
    EndIf
WEnd
