Mac Form: Adding Hidden Text Feature to Fields
Article ID: Q102423
In addition to a familiar design interface, the HyperCard program includes a powerful scripting language. When a form is compiled and installed, however, common HyperCard scripts are ignored.
You can add "compile" scripts to a form to add complex features. When you choose the Compile button, it sends out a Compile command.
To customize a form, you can add code to the Compile command to tell the compiling script to set certain attributes for a particular object.
NOTE: The text will display as bullets on the Send screen but will be visible on the Read screen. This feature is useful for entering confidential information, such as passwords.
