Is GUICtrlCreateInput able to represent characters by *'s?

6 posts in this topic

Title says it all. Are we able to make anything appear in an input represented as *? I know this can be done in an InputBox, but I need it in a GUI.

InputBox("test", "Notice that the stuff you type in the inputbox is represented in *'s", "", "*")

And how exactly would i be able to get the text within the guictrlcreateinput?

thnx

If the input box has a special character to hide the text it can still be read using GUICtrlRead($Input1), it just isn't shown in the input.

Is that what you mean?

From the remarks in the help file:

For defining an input control for entering passwords (input is hidden with an asterisk) use the $ES_PASSWORD style.

Umm... you did it exactly like I posted. You used $ES_PASSWORD (except you used the value instead of the $var).
