disable the text and insert some * instead in input/output field

Hi Everyone,

In my pop-up screen, I have a input/output field which is say password. Now if the user enters the text in this field,

for eg say tiger, then I don't want to show this text but instead ***** the text which is typed must not be visible.

Is it possible to implement this. Is there any parametes in screen painter wherein I can set this up for this field.

It would be great if anyone can help me on this.

Thanks,

Prabs.

    In screen painter, highlight the I/O box (which you wish to change) and press F2.

    This will display a property window for the screen object.

    Go to the second tab (if you are using the graphical screen painter) and find the option labeled "* Entry"

    Set this property to true (checked).

    Hi Prabhakaran,

    In SE51 , in element list goto Display Attributes tab. Set the invisible check box. This will do the trick for you.

    Cheers.

    Hi,

    or try this:

     LOOP AT SCREEN.
        IF screen-group1 = 1.
          screen-invisible = 1.
          MODIFY SCREEN.
        ENDIF.
      ENDLOOP.

    The above 2 methods will do for you.

    Since it is a password field it is better to mark the checkbox in attrributes as it will be static throughout the program
