Single Line of Text - Password Option

Question asked by harley5000 on Oct 14, 2018

I can't find any documentation on the Password Option in the Advanced Section of a Single Line of Text control.

Understand that it will replace the text with asterisks but how are you supposed to call the value and evaluate it against anything?


My scenario is that I am trying to capture a value that is not exactly a password but is sensitive in nature. Think of it like an Employee ID. I want an end user to be able to input this value but the text remain hidden and then query a SQL database based on that value, to retrieve a value. For example, their Cost Centre.


I have this working fine with the text displaying but can't work out how to capture it in a more hidden manner.
