  • Dear,

    When you set the PasswordChar property of the textbox; it will become a password box with copy preventing properties automatically, try doing so, it will work.

    thanks

  • Its simple

    in windows application just take a textbox and set its PasswordChar property to "*" (without quotes) or any other character which you want for password charatcer.

    Finally on the button event handler write the following code to get the typed password.

    string password = textBox1.Text;
    Thanks

  • I want to use Password box not the Textbox because the Password box provides security like anyone can't copy - paste the password from the password box
    but it can be copy - pasted from a textbox, So please tell me how to use the password box, I've already used the text box as a password box in my application
    Please tell me about the password box.   And thanks for support.

  • There is no Password text control in the WinForms library.  You can only use the TextBox as MS Ninja has said or alternatively the MaskedTextBox.  They both provide same password functionality.
