Is there really no style yet in FileMaker 16 to hide field input with dots or chosen character that is IWP compatible yet? Custom dialog is not IWP compatible. Without writing a complex script...
Select inspector / data / control style / conceal edit box
I apologize, FM uses the word "conceal" and I was searching for "hide".
FileMaker Pro 16 Help
I don't know anything about IWP but Concealed Edit Boxes were added in FM15. Are they not useable with IWP?
IWP has been removed since FMP 13 if I’m right. Do you mean WebDirect ?
WebD support custom dialog and "dots" on FMS16.
As a style or only in a custom dialog?
Wow, I hadn't used it. Concealed edit box is also supported.
I meant "Concealed edit box" as control style. Screenshot from Webd.
Now I found difference, on FMPro (Win7) the box shows 8 dots, then after entering into the field it become same number of field value. OTOH WebD shows always same number of characters as field value.
Yes, that is a known expected difference between Pro and WebDirect with respect to Concealed Edit Boxes. Pro always displays 8 obscured characters when not clicked into field (to reveal less information about password), whereas WebDirect displays the same number of obscured characters as the password actually contains. It's unfortunately a limitation of the HTML <input type="password"> tag that is used to implement this field type in WebDirect.
