Password field in Uniface?
Author: email@example.com (sochaz)
Hello, I'm trying to make our application in Uniface looks a bit better. For password fields we used editbox with NDI syntax and NoDisplayCharacter set to 42 (an asterix). But it does not look great nowadays, so I wanted to change it to a bullet or something more common. According to Uniface Library "The default value is a bullet (decimal 165)." But that's not true... the decimal 165 is the yen symbol, not a bullet. I have tried to enter a 149, which should be a bullet character, but this results in very strange behaviour (nothing is shown at all). Real bullet character seems to be U+2022, which is a hex value, so this should be 8226 in decimal. So I have tried to enter 8226 as No Display Character, but Uniface changed it to 255. So it seems it is not possible to use any character with ASCII code greater than 255. I just wonder, what do you use as No Display Character for password field (editbox) in Uniface? Is there any way to use a standard bullet as seen in www browsers, MS Windows 7 logon etc? Kind regards, Zdeněk Socha
