I need a multi-line password textbox

phc_dev asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-11
Using my encrypted swipe control in a web page, when swiped into a standard textbox/password field of about 100px in length takes about 10 seconds to enter all of the encrypted swiped data. The field flickers as the masked data is entered and shifted to the left.  If i change the textbox to be Multi-lined with 9 rows at 800px in length, takes about 1 second to populate the entire area, but the characters are not masked. So, I would like the best of both worlds and create a multi-line password textbox.  Can it be done?
