hi there,

i am quite new to VB and have managed to create a code that will ask for user passcode in order to log in to the application. the problem now is how do i make it possible that the code eg "123456", is shown as "******" in the text box for security purposes?

thanks in advance

Hi,

the textbox has a property called "passwordchar". just fill in a * or any other character you want and the textbox will show that instead of the character you really typed.
cheers
