Hello,

I am wondering if I can use the UseSystemPasswordChar property with the Radtextbox. It works with the traditional texbox but does not seem to work with the radtexbox. 

For the moment, I am using an alternative solution which is:
radTextBoxNewPass.PasswordChar = '*';

Thank you,
LB

Hello Ludovic,

Thank you for contacting us.

I was not able to replicate the issue you experience. The PasswordChar property of RadTextBox seems to be working properly on my side. Would you please have a look at the attached project and let me know what I should modify in order to reproduce the issue.

In case you are using RadTextBoxControl, the PasswordChar property has already been suggested as a feature request. Feel free to vote for it here: http://www.telerik.com/support/pits.aspx#/details/Issue=12265

I am looking forward to your reply.

Dear Boryana,

As I wrote in my previous message PasswordChar works fine and I use it as alternative but I would like to use UseSystemPasswordChar property with the RadTextBox like this:

radTextBoxNewPass.UseSystemPasswordChar = true;

It works with the normal TextBox but not with the RadTextBox.

Best regards,
LB

Hello Ludovic,

Thank you for writing back.

You can set the UseSystemPasswordChar property of the hosted TextBox item. Here is a sample snippet:
((TextBox)this.radTextBox1.TextBoxElement.TextBoxItem.HostedControl).UseSystemPasswordChar = true;

I hope this addresses your question. Let me know if you encounter further issues.

Kind regards,
Boryana

Thank you for this, it helped me as well. 

I just wanted to chime in and say thanks and say that this seems rather unintuitive, and seeing as how you guys expose most of the other native "HostedControl" properties, it just seems natural to expose this one, too.  Just my $0.02. =)

If you think it makes sense, please vote for this feature request to add the property to the RadTextBox object:
