Password Protection

I need to passowrd log on and set passwords as well as enable user levels based on administration access. I cannot find any information for instance on how best to get a secure password splash screen that cannot be worked around. PLease anyone got suggestions?

When you sow a thought, you reap an act. When you sow an act, you reap a habit. When you sow a habit, you reap a character. When you sow a character, you reap a destiny.

RE: Password Protection

A modal form that's invoked at the beginning of the program that only allows the continuation of the program if a valid User/Password (or whatever you choose) should be good.

You can use "global" SKIP FOR settings to enable/disable your menu settings, or use GENMENUX to reconfigure the menu based on your criteria. (Or you can write your own - the Menu is just another table, and the syntax for adding and removing menu pieces isn't all that difficult.)

Note: Places where you can get GENMENUX are:
