    PasswordChar Property (TextCellType)
    In This Topic
    Gets or sets the character for masking data in the text cell.
    Public Property PasswordChar As Char
    Dim instance As TextCellType
    Dim value As Char
    instance.PasswordChar = value
    value = instance.PasswordChar
    public char PasswordChar {get; set;}

    Property Value

    Character containing the character for masking the password

    This property lets you set which character to substitute in the display of the cell contents when a user types in a password. When this property is set, the display of the formatted data (Text property) appears to be replaced with the password character but the unformatted data (Value property) contains the actual text string.

    The PasswordChar property has no effect when the Multiline property is set to true. Refer to the TextBox.PasswordChar property in the .NET Framework Reference documentation for more information.

    This example specifies a password character that replaces all the text characters when displayed. The value of the cell is the text string, though it is not visible.
    FarPoint.Win.Spread.CellType.TextCellType txt = new FarPoint.Win.Spread.CellType.TextCellType();
    txt.PasswordChar = Convert.ToChar("+");
    fpSpread1.Sheets[0].Cells[0, 0].CellType = txt;
    fpSpread1.Sheets[0].Cells[0, 0].Text = "This is a text cell.";
    fpSpread1.Sheets[0].Columns[0].Width = 200; 
    Dim txt As New FarPoint.Win.Spread.CellType.TextCellType()
    txt.PasswordChar = "+"
    FpSpread1.Sheets(0).Cells(0, 0).CellType = txt
    FpSpread1.Sheets(0).Cells(0, 0).Text = "This is a text cell."
    FpSpread1.Sheets(0).Columns(0).Width = 200
