While entering the characters in password field, the characters are not displayed...

Hi All,

I am facing a problem with ITextCtl when using Password mode. I am not able to see the entered character once it goes beyong the textbox rectangle. Just '*' is displayed as I press key. It should display character for a while before it becomes '*'. charcters can be seen before typed characters reach the rectangle but not after that.

1. Set the text entry mode of textcontrol as Password.
2. Receive the characters.
3. Initially character that is being typed can be seen before it becomes '*' (i.e. asterisk).
4. Once the character goes beyond the textcontrol rectangle(i.e. Password textbox),typed characters cant be seen at all. Just '*' is displayed as the key is pressed. e.g If we are pressing AVK_9 key, it should displaye 'w' first,when again pressed it should display 'y' and so on. But this is not the case. So we are not able to see entered characters before they convert to '*' (i.e. asterisk).
5. This is observed on Simulator as well as on device. I am using Motorola V3C(BREW Version 3.1.2 and s/w version: GATW218_04.02.00P). I have also observed the same behavior on Motorola L7C (BREW Version 3.1.2 and s/w version: 2408_01.08.00)

Have anyone faced such problem before? I need argent solution for this.
I have tried all combinations of TP_FRAME, TP_MULTILINE, TP_PASSWORD, TP_FIXSETRECT etc. but of no use :mad: . Can anyone please reply fast?

Thanks in Advance.

I faced the same issue, and I did not find any solution for this, I guess it should be a known issue.

I feel u will not face this problem once u implement multiline or scroll uor data to left once screen is finished .
Only problem i think is u r not able to see text as it is going beyond screen width.
else i understood it wrong.

Hi Ashutosh,
The problem is different. I can see the entered text as it goes beyond the rectangle as it is being scrolled horizontally. What I mean from cant see characters is that while entering password, character should be displayed for some time before it gets converted to "*" (asterisk) but when I go beyond the rectangle directly "*" is displayed instead of charatcer for some time.
I hope now you will get idea about the issue.
Thanks!
