Hello ,

I am struck with the script , I have to hide/mask SSN(a number or string) .I should only be displaying last four digits of that number.

<html:text property="ssn1" styleClass="clsForm" maxlength="3" size="3" uppercase="true" onkeyup="javascript:autoTab(this, 3, event);if(value.length==2){ssn2.focus();mask(this)}"/> 

please note its not a <input> tag its <html:text> and the value is displayed from database we are not entering it and value is read only.I want to know If I am calling mask(this) from correct place. I do not see any thing reflected on the page even after I have written the following java script

java script

function mask(obj) {
var a=’’;
var len = obj.value.length;
for(var i=0,;i<len;i++) {
a += "x";

obj.value = a;
can somebody correct this java script . if numbers are like 123456789 then i should display them as *****6789 (only last four visible)
