Hi All,

I have a radTextBox whose "PasswordChar" property is set to  and asterik "*".
When i run the application and bring the cursor to the text box, the cursor disappears which really confuses the user.
Can you please tell me the reason behind this and what can be done to make the cursor blink in the text box while the focus is on it?

Thanks
barkha

Oh Well the cursor also disappears when the PasswordChar property is not set.
PS: The text property of the radTexBox is set blank.

Thanks

Hello Barkha,

Cursor hiding is actually a feature. The idea is that the mouse cursor will disturb the user when he enters text.
Microsoft's implementation is the same - you can see that in the attached movie. You can also check how Microsoft Word behaves.
