Hi,

If you see "*" this simply means there's a character in that edit box.
If you want it to be empty than just make sure the corresponding CString is empty and no stars will be shown.

Of course you can also 'pre-select' the complete password and give that edit box the focus so that whenever the user starts typing, the content is automatically replaced by what he is typing.

Bye.

Hi zzynx,

My password member variable is of type int, not CString.

That * you see in your password box is probably a 0. Is your password always going to be a number? I'd suggest using a CString member variable instead of a int variable anyway for a password.
