    I have a few RadTextBoxes in the settings area of my app, and I need one of them to be a password entry box.  There's no RadPasswordBox though, and no TextMode property like in ASP.NET,  so how could I achieve this?  Do I need to go back to a regular PasswordBox control for this?

    Hi Mat,

    Thank you for your question.

    RadTextBox doesn't provide such functionality out of the box and since you ask, we think that a control that provides such a functionality could be a nice addition to our suite. However, it will be included in our next release, which is coming in about three months. If you can't wait till then, you can have a look at our examples solution where there is a field that requires a password and see how we have done it by using both PasswordBox and RadTextBox.

    Let me know if you have further questions.

    Kind regards,

    Hi Eugeniy,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    I am happy to confirm that RadPasswordBox is coming in mid-October as part of our next official release. As to the Mask, such a control is not included in our plans for the next release. If you want a similar behavior, you can use the RadTextBox and define an appropriate InputScope. You can also define EventHandlers for the KeyDown and KeyUp events if you want to dismiss some symbols or if you want to limit the length of the text.

    Let me know if I can assist you furtherer.

    All the best,

    Thank you a lot!
    I will do it as you say: by handling events
    + templating allows to inject suffix and prefix in to RadTextBox

    It would be great if RadPasswordBox supported input scope. I would like a password control that only allows input of numbers (similar to some online banking sites like ingdirect).  I think the larger hit area of number input makes for a better user experience.

    Thanks,
    Mike

    Hello Mike,

    Thank you for contacting us.

    The only way to change the on screen keyboard is by setting the TextBox's InputScope. However, this property is not present in the native PasswordBox and we have no way to implement it for RadPasswordBox because the Windows Phone framework doesn't provide an API for choosing what keyboard to show.
