Password characters

Post icon  Posted 10 February 2009 - 11:20 PM

Hi, how do you get a textbox being using for password entry to display the black circle that you often see in web forms, on the iphone etc etc?

I can change the PasswordChar property to an asterisk no problem and even copying and pasting symbols inserted into Word seemed to work - just couldn't find a symbol that looked like a bullet point!

Can this actually be achieved for a standalone exe, or is it something unique to web forms? Surely copying and pasting symbols from Word isn't actually the answer??

Thanks

Set the UseSystemPasswordChar in the properties of the textbox to True

Or you can use TextBox1.UseSystemPasswordChar = True in your code

Firstly Set
UseSystemPasswordChar = False

Then Set
PasswordChar = "☺"

Change the smiley face with whatever you want, try one of these
☺ ☻ ♥ ♦ ♣ ♠ • ◘ ○ ◙ ♂ ♀ ♪ ♫ ☼ ► ◄ ↕ ‼ ¶ § ▲ ▼

then whatever you type in the textbox will be replaced by it...

Hope it helps..

Its Quite Simple!! This is what i tried..!
You can use not only big black circle but also other characters.!

Here How it is done..
--------------------
1) First set "UseSystemPasswordChar = False" for Password textbox
1) Next Set "Font" Property of Password TextBox to " Webdings "
2) Now in place of "PasswordChar" try typing all Alphabets both in
uppercase and lowercase by running ur application
3) Finally Set alphabet as ur PasswordChar of ur choice!

Here is a quick look that which alphabet represents which Character

J >>
R >>
t >>
l >>

For me Alt + 7 works

Or you can just copy and paste.
