Applies to Infiniti v8.0 or later
Note: From Infiniti v9 onwards User Prompt has been renamed Text Field.
Text Field now supports a new type - Password Data Type.
In DESIGN, open any project and add a Text Field. For passwords, it can be configured via the Data Type Pulldown:
Complete the remaining part of the Text Field as normal;
In PRODUCE, Setting a User Prompt as a Password will have the following effects:
When typing into the password field, the characters will be hidden
- When typing into the password field, the characters will be hidden
- When being redisplayed the password field will always show 6 characters, if there's more than one character typed in (they're #s behind the scenes). The value of the question will remain unchanged (whatever the user typed in). This is presently available in the Web version only.
- If you type into the field, and then leave it (resetting it to ######), the next time you type a character the field will be cleared (preventing people from pressing backspace and then typing something and ending up with their password being "####ri" or something similar). Again, this is presently in the web version only.
- The value of the password field will be encrypted in Answer Files, but if you put in a question reference the reference will be unencrypted (such as if you're passing the password to an Action).
