i just want to cover up what the user will type at the inputbox with asterisk "*"
how can i change the input in the input box with * so it will not be seen by others while the user will type his password

Create an 'input form' that looks like an InputBox. For every character hit, save it and replace it with '*' in the TextBox of the form.


One other solution for that is to create a frame with invisible property, put a textbox on it with assign password characater, and when a user click a button just change the frame property to visible. Here is the example: http://reygcalantaol.com/projects/fake inputbox.zip
