textmode = password

Posted on 2003-12-10
Last Modified: 2008-03-03
I have a asp:textbox that has its textmode set to password. If I tried to feed in a password string via code - the textbox remains blank, but if I take off the textmode then it works (but that's no good because then the password is not masked)

I don't know how ASP works but VB textboxes have a property for the password character.  Does ASP have such a thing?

<meta name="GENERATOR" content="Microsoft FrontPage 6.0">
<meta name="ProgId" content="FrontPage.Editor.Document">
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=windows-1252">
<title>New Page 1</title>
<script language="javascript">

<form method="POST" name="frmData">
      <p><input type="text" name="T1" size="20"></p>
