    In the ASP.NET version of your components the RadTextBox also contains a password strength bar (depending on the password strength the bar colors green/yellow/red. 

    Is there a possibility to have the same functionality in the Winforms version of the components?

    Thank you

    Hello Bernd,

    Thank you for writing.

    Currently, we do not offer such functionality for our RadTextBox. However, you can easily achieve this scenario with our controls without much trouble. I have attached a sample project with two password strength indicators. One uses the RadProgressBar and the second one the RadLabel for indication. They both use the same algorithm to calculate the password strength which you should change, so it would comply to your requirements. In addition, you should be able to easily change the visual indication of the password strength.

    I hope you will find this useful. If you need further assistance I would be glad to provide it. 

    All the best,
