[Solved] Hide password in Thunkable?

Hi all. I’ve recently made a sign in page for my app using two TextInput components (one for their email and one for their password). I was wondering if there was a way to make the password hidden when the user types in the password input box?
Thanks.

Yes it’s easy, just go to password text box property and choose advanced, in there secure text entry as enabled.

Enjoy…

Unfortunately, secureText entry option does not work in web app. I wish it does. Any plan to implement for web app?

Hi @Patrick_Elisha, @domhnallohanlon

I created a sample screen as a workaround for password entry for web apps. See the link Web Login Example

Hello, and thanks for asking. I am making an app which requires signing in. So for the password text box, I wanted the text input to hide the characters.

In the advanced tab of the password [input_text] switch the [SecureTextEntry] to True

That’s exactly what I have done but it doesn’t work

It doesn’t work in the web but it works in the live testing app, the companion app and the downloaded app.

I have tried live-testing the app, but it still doesn’t work. I can provide screenshots for proof.Secure Text Entry Proof
But, even when I am doing the live test, even then:
text field proof
The text is visible as shown above… I think that Thunkable has a bug to solve… I hope they do the debugging of this error soon… Highly unexpected… :-1:

Buying the membership for Thunkable PRO, turned out to be a waste of time and money, after all. There are a few more bugs in Thunkable, and I have done exactly what is told in the tutorials, by community members, and some of these community members who have tried to solve my problems were Beta Testers, Power Thunkers etc. I mean, who else could know more about Thunkable than these people? And their advice itself didn’t work.

Highly unexpected (:-1:

@thecodingmasterabeer,

The password feature only works on the app. If you are testing using the web or the option in the menu then it will not work.

Use the Thunkable app and you will see it working as expected.

You don’t need to buy the PRO for this feature.

Happy Thunking :grin:
