Maskign a password with asterix

Maskign a password with asterix

Hello, I am trying to create a simulation where the user enters in a user name and password. What I want is to have the password appear as asterix when it is typed in. For example, if the user types the password "enter", I want it to appear in the paaword field of my simlulated log in screen as "****" while it is type. How can this be done in Authorware? Thanks in advance for any replies.

RE: Maskign a password with asterix

you could do two things:

1.  change the text entry font in the interaction icon to wingdings or dingbats

2.  set the text entry display mode to transparent.
