This there any MFC class that encapsulates a userid and password dialog box?  Does it also show * when the user enters a password?

There must be one somewhere - rather than coding it from scratch.

You can use an edit box in your dialog and set the password style directly in the form designer or manually set the ES_PASSWORD style. You can then call SetPasswordChar() to set whatever character you wnat to replace the actual typed in text.
