Try

$Input2 = GUICtrlCreateInput("", 248, 32, 105, 21, $ES_PASSWORD)

Maybe that will work.

The problem with your code was that GuiSetStyle if for a whole GUI, not just predefined dialog boxes (like MsgBox(), InputBox())

Think you better re-read the first post GUICtrlSetStyle was used... and it was trying to be applied to a control not a dialog box :) Edited by smashly

I have same confusion as well:

$input = GuiCtrlCreateInput("", 120, 50, 170, 20,$ES_PASSWORD)

works for sure. However reason to use following code is to give a option to show/hide the inpute content

$input = GuiCtrlCreateInput("", 120, 20, 170, 20)

$box = GuiCtrlCreateCheckbox("Hidden Input", 310, 20, 100, 20)

GUISetOnEvent($box, "HideInput")

.....

Func HideInput()

Local $chkbox = GUICtrlRead($box)

If $box = 1 then

GUICtrlSetStyle ($input, $ES_PASSWORD)

Else

GUICtrlSetStyle ($input, $GUI_SS_DEFAULT_INPUT)

Endif

EndFunc

I tried if I use style option like $ES_RIGHT, it works but just does not work with $ES_PASSWORD.

I don't know if it is a bug or just it is supposed to be. any ideas?

Try this:

#include <GuiConstants.au3>

GUICreate("Test")

$Input = GuiCtrlCreateInput("", 120, 20, 170, 20)
$CheckBox = GuiCtrlCreateCheckbox("Toggle Pass", 310, 20, 100, 20)

GUISetState()

While 1
    Switch GUIGetMsg()
        Case -3
            Exit
        Case $CheckBox
            TogglePassInput()
    EndSwitch
WEnd

Func TogglePassInput()
    Local Const $EM_SETPASSWORDCHAR = 0xCC
    If GUICtrlRead($CheckBox) = 1 Then
        GUICtrlSendMsg($Input, $EM_SETPASSWORDCHAR, Asc("*"), 0)
        GUICtrlSetState($input, @SW_UNLOCK)
    Else
        GUICtrlSendMsg($Input, $EM_SETPASSWORDCHAR, 0, 0)
        GUICtrlSetState($input, @SW_UNLOCK)
    EndIf
EndFunc

But it set some sort of unknown characters, i don't really know how to set correct password characters :P

Edit: Ok, now works as it should! found the right solution here ;)
