I'm trying to do the following:
I want to use textbox for a password field, but if the password was previously set, I'd like to show not an empty fields but this circles (or stars on older systems). No matter what I do, the field is initially empty - I don't have round-trips before the intial display, so it gets into the page load, then into the method for populating controls and that's it. I know that I can do it manually, but I would like to use password type as it simplifies typing with showing only circles (*s). How can I put some initial text in to this textbox?
