Replacing typed characters for "***" while typing a password



  • Hi,

    I"m wondering if there is an example how you can replace characters when typing. Like you do for many websites when entering a password.
    So I want to use a typed string from the HMI in the "task" block, but want to replace the typed characters with "***" characters.

    Looking forward for feedback on this.

    Best regards,
    Peter

    Hello Peter,
    so far this feature is not available yet, but it will be soon. Just little recommendation. If you are about to use passwords in your HMI I strongly recommend to switch from HTTP to HTTPS protocol.
    Just visit the https//: 127.0.0.1:8009 (mind the different port) and your communication between web browser and REGYGEN web server will be encrypted.

    Best regards,
    Ondrej
