password

Arguments: editable-text

Returns the value of the password property of its argument, which must be an editable-text control. This property may be used to prevent others from seeing what the end user is typing into an editable-text control, by displaying an asterisk or other special character for each character that the user actually enters. The real characters are still stored in the string value of the control as usual. Password masking can be switched on and off for an existing editable-text by calling the setf of this function.

The value may be either nil (the default) for ordinary text display without password masking, t to display an asterisk for each real character, or a Lisp character to display that character for each real character.

password is a property of the editable-text class. (In the documentation for some earlier releases, password was incorrectly said to be a property of multi-line-editable-text class as well.)
