Force password field to retain value after postback

This might be more a javascript question but...

I''m handling a login submission at a point where the user has submitted the form (contains a TextMode=password field) once already on just needs to verify info in the email field. How do I re-populate the password field with the original value?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Here is an example of a way to accomplish what you are trying to do:

<html xmlns="" >
<head runat="server">
    <title>Untitled Page</title>
    <script type="text/javascript" >
         function setPassword(password){
            var txtPassword = document.getElementById("txtPassword");
            txtPassword.value =password;
<body >
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
        <asp:TextBox ID="txtUserName" runat="server"></asp:TextBox>
        <asp:TextBox ID="txtPassword" runat="server" TextMode="Password"></asp:TextBox></div>
     <asp:Literal ID="scriptPlace" runat="server"></asp:Literal>


// Substitue 'this' as a variable with your data
protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
        this.scriptPlace.Text = "<script type='text/javascript'>setPassword('this');</script>";

Not sure if this is a C# vs VB issue but I had to use:

Me.scriptPlace.Text = "<script type='text/javascript'>setPassword('" & myPassHolder & "');</script>"

Other than that, worked great, thx!
