RepositoryItemTextEdit.PasswordChar Property

Gets or sets the password character displayed instead of actual characters.

Namespace:DevExpress.XtraEditors.Repository
Assembly:DevExpress.XtraEditors.v17.1.dll

Expanded Syntax

Property value

Type: Char
A character displayed instead of actual characters.
The default is \0x0.

Expanded Remarks

Password mode allows you to mask the editor's text. You can activate password mode in two ways:

  • Set the UseSystemPasswordChar property to true. The editor's text will be masked as follows:

  • Set the PasswordChar property to any valid character. This character will be used to mask the editor's text.

    For instance, if the PasswordChar property is set to "*", an editor will look as follows:

    The PasswordChar property is ignored if the RepositoryItemMemoEdit.UseSystemPasswordChar property is set to true.

Copying, cutting and pasting operations are not available in password mode (the TextEdit.Copy, TextEdit.Cut and TextEdit.Paste methods cannot be used either).

Password mode is not supported by the MemoEdit and MemoExEdit editors, and by editors without text input.
