Password entry field for web direct

Does anyone have a good workaround for a password-type entry field that works in web direct?

 

I worked out a rather nice one (if I do say so myself) that works in FMP, but then at the very last minute found the note in help that says Get ( ActiveSelectionSize ) doesn't work on web direct ( ) so I'm back to square one.

 

Working on a change password layout, and also trying to create a layout for login, but also with the expected "forgot password" and "create new account" screens. I have the scripts and so forth for validating, creating and modifying the (real, FM) accounts, but I need the user to enter a password (or desired new password) in a global to pass to my scripts, without someone watching over their shoulder and seeing the pw in plain text.

 

Happy to share my widget if anyone needs it in something other than web direct, but hoping someone else can save me starting over on this for a wd-compatible one.
