Mask string inputs?


#1

Is there a way to mask input fields (strings in particular)? I want to mask the input and display of a string variable because it is a password. Is there a way to do this?

Not directly, but you could write a little code in your strategy (or Node-RED flow) to do something like this:

PINdemo

See what I mean, here?


#3

Kind of, but what gadget would I use? In order to write to my string variable I need to select a text box which in turn displays whatever was entered into that variable. It’s kind of a catch 22 here.

Can I add a mask option for the text box gadget to the wish list?
