password hiding?

is it possible to make your prompts like a password prompt? so like when the user types something all that shows are dots or asterisks etc.?

Try this, hendo:

display dialog "Please enter your password:" default answer "" with hidden answer
set theResponse to text returned of (display dialog "Enter Text" default answer "" with hidden answer)

Well, I almost answered first - couldn’t find the example I had saved, so had to figure it out from memory.

Sorry j - I’ll wait a bit longer in future, before jumping in. :wink:

Give a the novices a head start on the easy questions? Fair enough. :slight_smile:
