JOptionPane.showInputDialog... (password field?)

hi,

i'd like to use a JOptionPane to allow the user to supply a password in. Is there any way of making the text field in the JOptionPane.showInputDialog not show the characters being typed in it ?(like a JPasswordField)

Thanks,

try:

         JPasswordField jpf = new JPasswordField(30);
         JPanel messagePanel = new JPanel();
         messagePanel.setLayout(new BoxLayout(messagePanel, BoxLayout.Y_AXIS));
         messagePanel.add(new JLabel("Enter password:"));
         messagePanel.add(jpf);
         int result = JOptionPane.showConfirmDialog(null, messagePanel,  "Enter Password",
