In your web screens you can create input fields that hold the data typed by the end-user. This data is then stored in a variable that you can handle in your eSpace. This behavior is implemented by the Input Password widget.

If the end-user does not specify a value and leaves the input empty, the widget variable is set to the null value specified in the Null Value property of the widget or, if empty, the null value of the data type.

Likewise, if the end-user types a value that is incompatible with the variable data type (e.g. an invalid date), the variable is set to the null value of the widget or, if empty, the null value of the data type.

Presentation of the widget

You can specify whether the Input Password widget is presented or not to the end-user by setting the Visible property. How?

You can also specify whether this widget is enabled or disabled by setting the Enabled property. How? The layout of this widget is the same, regardless of this property. The difference is that, when this property is false, the end-user will not be able to change the value of the variable associated with this widget.

At development time, the Input Password widget is displayed on the Content Canvas as an empty box.
