I am making a binding which allows you to create users as things. Therefore, one can set the name and password as the thing’s configuration parameters. I am currently using a text input but obviously, passing a password as plain text is unsecure on multiple levels.
My questions are:
- Is it possible to make the input invisible/unreadable?
- Is it possible to handle the input like a GuardedString
Basically, I am trying to achieve a similar behavior as textBox.PasswordChar from C#
I looked into the available parameter/item types, but it seems like a similar functionality does not exist.
Any help or ideas on how to implement such a functionality are highly appreciated.
