The PasswordChar property lets you get or set the character used to mask the text entered in the component. This property has effect only if the EchoMode property is “eemPassword”.

The PasswordChar property only affects how the text is displayed. The actual value of the Text property is not modified.

Property Value

A one-symbol string which contains the masking character. If PasswordChar holds a null character (the character with the zero decimal code -- #0 in DelphiScript, Chr (0) in VBScript, "\0" in JavaScript, JScript, Python, C++Script and C#Script), then the component uses the default masking character, usually "*".
