textmode = password

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?
