The purpose of this element is to allow the entry of passwords. It's identical to the Input Text element except that it does not show the characters being typed. Instead, a black dot is shown for each character entered. This is a commonly-accepted method of preventing a bystander from reading a password as it's entered.
The Input Password element's attributes are the same as those of the Input Text element and are not repeated here. This element can be used by itself or within an Input Grid element to make alignment with other Input elements easier.
Getting Its Data
The text entered into this element will be available in the next Report or Process task by using an @Request token. For example, if the element's ID is set to txtPassword, then its data will be available as the token @Request.txtPassword~.
For additional information, see the Element Reference entry for Input Password.
