PasswordChar property

Specifies whether placeholder characters are displayed instead of the characters actually entered in a TextBox.


object.PasswordChar [= String ]

The PasswordChar property syntax has these parts:

Part Description
object Required. A valid object.
String Optional. A string expression specifying the placeholder character.


Use the PasswordChar property to protect sensitive information, such as passwords or security codes. The value of PasswordChar is the character that appears in a control instead of the actual characters that the user types. If you don't specify a character, the control displays the characters that the user types.
