Alterring edit box

I have an edit box. The user will enter text into this box that may contain a space or tab. I need to intercept each character that is entered and display a star. So if "Microsoft Visual" is entered, I want to see only "****************".Exactly like a password. How do I do that?

Already done for you.  Use the ES_PASSWORD style.  That is what it does!

Let me know if you have questions.

[Not typing fast enough...]

Use the ES_PASSWORD style to display all characters in the edit control as asterisks.  You can define a different character to display by using the EM_SETPASSWORDCHAR message.

I don't know your typing speed seems fine to me!  : - )
