[archive] secure entry field

[Migrated content. Thread originally posted on 13 January 2009]

I am using AcuBench to design a screen I have a entry field on it coded as secure so they can enter a password. With an hidden key I want to enable/disable the secure property of entry field, but doesn't work. I have tried with "modify ef-password, secure" but this instruction enable the field with "*". It is possible to disable the secure property from code?
thanks

Sorry the secure property does not allow you to have it on or off (like the visible or enable property). You could have 2 entry fields at the same scren location (secure and not secure) and then make the appropriate one visible based on your programs logic.

Another option is to destroy the control and then redisplay it with either secure specified or not.

This should be fairly seamless unless thin client is being used on a wide area network or this is done to a significant number of controls on the same screen - at the same time.
