I am a college student and i received an assignment last week. I think i am able to complete the assignment but in the password section, i think my program will be better if the password that the user entered will be masked by my program. My program needs the user to enter their IDs and passwords through the keyboard. My idea is : Any method to mask the password while the user is typing the password ? I afraid that someone will not understand my question... I mean if i press "9" on the keyboard then the "9" will appears on the monitor, but now i want to mask the "9" with anything such as the asterisk "*". Any suggestions ? Please mail to me firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any idea.
