I'm not sure you can I tried setting the style with GuiCtrlSetStyle() and it didn't work but the help file says some styles can not be changed once set. The other way you could do it is to delete the control and recreate it.

#include <GuiConstants.au3>

GuiCreate("MyGUI", 392, 170,-1, -1 , BitOR($WS_OVERLAPPEDWINDOW, $WS_CLIPSIBLINGS))

$Input_1 = GuiCtrlCreateInput("", 10, 20, 320, 30)
$Button_2 = GuiCtrlCreateButton("Password", 20, 120, 140, 30)
$Button_3 = GuiCtrlCreateButton("Plain", 220, 120, 140, 30)

GuiSetState()
While 1
    $msg = GuiGetMsg()
    Select
    Case $msg = $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
        ExitLoop
    Case $msg = $Button_2
        
    GuiCtrlDelete($Input_1)
    $Input_1 = GuiCtrlCreateInput("", 10, 20, 320, 30,$ES_PASSWORD)

    Case $msg = $Button_3
        
    GuiCtrlDelete($Input_1)
    $Input_1 = GuiCtrlCreateInput("", 10, 20, 320, 30)
    
    Case Else
    ;;;
    EndSelect
Wend

I would imagine that EM_SETPASSWORDCHAR + SendMessage + ControlFocus after the call would change it.

Edit:

Guess this is a good reason why I "Imagined" it:

Common sense plays a role in the basics of understanding AutoIt... If you're lacking in that, do us all a favor, and step away from the computer.

@SmOke_N

thnx for pointing me into the right direction

Show Password

GUICtrlSendMsg($PasswordField,0xCC,0,0)

GUICtrlSetState($PasswordField, @SW_UNLOCK)

Hide Password

GUICtrlSendMsg($PasswordField, 0xCC, Asc("*"), 0)

GUICtrlSetState($PasswordField, @SW_UNLOCK)

Should do the trick

@ChrisL

i believe deleting an recreating the field will also do the trick .. i haven't tried .. thnx anyway
