RE: [Clip] Re: Masking text.
I didn't have any use for this information last year, but I do now. I have
read your e-mail and looked at your clip code. I have also read through the
NoteTab Clip Help, but I cannot figure out how to as you say, hide "your
password while it's being typed into a box."
Can you give me an example of how to do that?

Subject: [Clip] Re: Masking text.
By coincidence I had written a short clip for myself just a couple
days ago that used a mask so my feeble brain cells are still somewhat
refreshed on the subject.
You can use a mask for pretty much anything you want with clip
wizards including hiding your password while it's being typed into a
box. Below is the clip I wrote to put text in a set width format,
the masks were used to limit the input to only numbers not exceeding
three digits in width, but I could have used the mask in other ways
as well. For example, to mask the typing of three characters while
accepting any of the keyboard keys I could just change 999 in the
clip below to ccc
; THIS CLIP FORMATS TEXT TO A SET WIDTH
; LAST MODIFIED: THURSDAY, JANUARY 8, 2004
^!Set %left%=^?[(S=3;M="999;0;?") Enter left margin =010]
^!Set %right%=^?[(S=3;M="999;0;?") Enter width of text =080]
^!Set %justify%=^?[(T=L;H=5) Justify Text?=_No^=0|Yes^=1]
^!Set %all%=^?[(T=L;H=5) =_All Text in Document^=0|Selected Text
^!If "^%all%" = "0" ^!Select All
