why have you posted in bold, huge letters ?

You could do something simple like using a label to display a message and when it's clicked, show a password box there.

yes i tried it's demo just now.
it's good solution. but i am using rounded corner text boxes. so i have to adjust label perfectly on password text box.
hope it will work.

I believe there is no such thing as a rounded corner textbox,
I think you are probably wrapping up your password widget in a panel having rounded corners (mostly a decorated panel)

What I am suggesting is to wrap a label instead of a password widget in the same place and when user clicks it, change it back to password widget.

i have used a single image of a rounded rectangle and set it as background of password textbox in css.
and then set the text box in a cell of flex table.

can i put two widgets in same cell?? so i can set one visible. and another invisible.
i think it will..

In the realm of HTML thats possible, in GWT, there is just one setWidget(Widget w) method, so you cant.

However, you could make a widget that contains 2 widgets and shows one at a time.
It sounds like a candidate for the DeckPanel. Heck i would prefer the horizontal panel with one element visible at a time.

As for the rounded corner background, its probably just a style, I dont see why that could create issues.

This is my first time to post:

The way I solved this problem was to extend the TextBox and create a new widget (It was because I had a promptTextBox, which I used for both password and textbox functions: the original source was from turbomanage).

*note: because I'm using this as both a TextBox and PasswordTextBox, I added a Boolean isPassword to my constructor

1st I implement keypresshandler on the widget that extends the TextBox.

2nd onkeypress, I just store what they type into a String called passwordString, and cancel the input, then insert another String called masked with the ASCII code for *.


I know of the old swap of label with textbox, but I don't like the solution because when you add styles, it kind shifts a little.
I don't know how good the solution is for security, so use it at your own risk.

Hope this helps.

Jay

in case anyone wondered here is a very simple solution:

TextBox textBox = new TextBox();
textBox.getElement().setPropertyString("type", "password");
