Control: Password

 Show all Hide all

Lets the user enter a password in a single-line textbox.

The characters entered will be represented as '*' in the textbox to prevent it from being seen by unintended spectators.

IMPORTANT: Using a password control is only one small piece of keeping passwords secure. It only prevents the password from being displayed on the screen. It does not protect the traffic to and from the server, nor does it ensure the password is stored in a secure way.
