19.1. WML Password Input Fields

Preferences - Do not show ads

The type attribute is another useful attribute of the <input> element. Its value can be either text (default value) or password. If the value of the type attribute is text, the characters in the input field will be visible; if you change it to password, all characters in the input field will be displayed as asterisks (*). Note that data in password input fields will not be transmitted in a more secure way than that in ordinary input fields. The following WML example demonstrates how to create a password input field:


<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE wml PUBLIC "-//WAPFORUM//DTD WML 1.3//EN" "http://www.wapforum.org/DTD/wml13.dtd">

  <card id="card1" title="Password Input Fields">
      Please login before reading our WML tutorial.<br/><br/>
      User Name:
      <input type="text" name="name" maxlength="16" value="Jack"/><br/>
      <input type="password" name="passwd" maxlength="10" value="abc"/>

The result of the above WML example in WAP browsers is shown below:
