How to make a masked edit control on a dialog box

Jump to solution

 

I have a dialog box which prompts for a username and password. So how can I mask the text box control which accepts the password?  On the toolbar I see a button labeled "Masked Edit:, but the button is not selectable. In fact all of the buttons to the right of the "Icon" button are visible but not selectable. I am using an InstallScript project using IS 2016.

Hi @FlexeraFan ,

 

You can make edit field control as masked edit by making Password property to true:Which is property of editfield control

Password

Basic MSI, InstallScript, InstallScript MSI, InstallScript Object, Merge Module

If you want this control to behave like a password control, only showing an asterisk (*) in place of each character, select True. If you want this control to behave like a normal edit field control, select False.

 

Dialog controls get enabled/disabled based on project type for which you could see few controls disabled for installscript projects.

Below link shows dialog controls associated with project types:
