Question on Password Entry in MSVC++ 5.0

How can I display a '*' instead of the character which the user has entered in the "edit box" of my program? Well... the whole idea is to create a password entry box so that the user can enter the password without the password being displayed in the "edit box".

For your informations, I'm working on a Win98 platform and using Microsoft Visual C++ 5.0.

Any help offered is very much appreciated!

Believe it or not, there is actually a "password" option on your edit box in the advanced styles.  Your entry will be replaced with asterisks.

Oops, it is in the regular "Styles" property page.

If you never done it before, how would've you known?!  I only found it by accident when I needed it!
