Displaying Asterisks for Password typed into InputBox( )

P: n/a
I would like to have a transparent command button on my Main Menu to
cause an Inputbox( ) to be displayed for the user to enter a password.
This is to control the enabling of Bypass Key (shift). My question is
... is it possible for the password to be displayed as asterisks ("*")
in the input text box as the user types in the text?

If yes, how do I get that to work? If no, then does anyone have any
suggestion?

Thanks much.
Regards,
SueB

one option is to create an unbound form and remove all the record
selectors etc and then format the textbox as a password. You'd just
have to create your own Ok/Cancel buttons. then you can just do the
verification or whatever in your code behind the form.

No, it is not possible with an input box. You'll need to create a
popup form with a textbox and Ok/Cancel button.

Why not just use a small hidden textbox, formatted as a password. on your main menu ?
-- When a user clicks 'Enable ByPass', first show the textbox if empty.
-- If filled with the right pw, then enable ByPass (or do whatever)
-- Hide the textbox again and set it's value to null.
