I'm attempting to hide a password with astericks when user is entering and I get the error message
"'PasswordChar' is not a member of 'System.Web.UI.WebControls.TextBox'."
when I add
<code>
 Protected Sub textPassword_TextChanged(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles textPassword.TextChanged
        textPassword.Text = ""
        textPassword.PasswordChar = "*"
        textPassword.MaxLength = 10
    End Sub
</code>
to my aspx.vb file to handle input textbox textPassword
I prefer to handle password as a textbox rather than use the Logon control
How to get rid of the error message?
Any suggestions are appreciated.

And you dont need to specify it in the text changed event. Specify it in aspx
