How can I encrypt my passwords so that they are not displayed in clear text in my script ?

How can I encrypt my passwords so that they are not displayed in clear text in my script ?

Since SilkPerformer 5.1 there is a Project Attribute setting that allows passwords to remain encrypted so that in the script no password information is displayed.

To set-up Project Attributes for passwords do the following :-
1. Choose Project - Project Attributes
2. In the name field give the attribute a name (e.g My_Password)
3. In the Type field choose "password" from the drop-down list.
4. In the Value field enter a password you wish to use in your script.

Now in the script put the following code into a transaction.....

Transaction TInit

var sPassword : string;

begin

AttributeGetString ("My_Password", sPassword, sizeof (sPassword)); writeln (sPassword);

end TInit;


You can then use the variable sPassword anywhere that it is required in your script.

NOTE: Project attributes are case sensitive
