Hi,

Here's what I'm doing.  I'm making a client list for my company that includes the clients domain, username, and password (see attachment).  When I display the list, I would like to display asterisks, but when the user clicks on the password, it's revealed.
ScreenshotOr something similar.  The reason for this is when all the domains are listed, I don't want someone looking over shoulders to get the login creeds.  Anyhow, does anyone know how I would be able to accomplish this?

Javascript, php, jquery...anything should be fine.

Place the actual value in a custom eg
<input type="text" value="" data-value="123456" class="password">

With jquery
$(".password").focus(function(){
    $(this).val($(this).attr("data-value"))
})
$('.password').focusout(function() {
  $(this).val("")
});

test page : http://jsfiddle.net/azZpq/
<input type="password" id="pwd1" name="password" />
<input type="text" id="pwd2" />

Open in new window

$(document).ready(function() {
    $("#pwd1").focus(function() {
        $(this).hide();
        $("#pwd2").val($(this).val()).show();
        setTimeout(function() { $("#pwd2").focus(); },200);
    })
    $("#pwd2").blur(function() {
        $(this).hide();
        $("#pwd1").val($(this).val()).show();
    })
})

Open in new window

Is there a way to do this without using an input?  Make it use a div?

I hope my example will help towards your solution:

Simply use javascript to change type like:

<input type="password" id="password" name="pass" onBlur="this.type='password'" onClick="this.type='text'"/>

Open in new window


Now you may code it for user

You can but it makes it harder to know when it doesn't have focus - why not an input?
jagadishdulal solution is so simple it's embarrassing.

Yeah, that's what I'm doing, and yes jagadishdulal, that is amazingly simple.  Makes me hate life for not thinking of it.

I haven't done any cross-browser testing (common sense tells me it will be just fine), and I gotta say that elegant and enlightening solutions like this are one of the reasons I love being part of Experts-Exchange.
