ES_PASSWORD - totally useless, don't know why it exists.
</rant>

I had this same problem until I found (after much digging) the easy way. Check out: CEdit::SetPasswordChar[^]

From the documentation:

Parameters

ch

Specifies the character to be displayed in place of the character typed by the user. If ch is 0, the actual characters typed by the user are displayed.


Apparently if an Edit control has ES_PASSWORD set when it is created (or subclassed or... lordy, who knows exactly when), MFC calls SetPasswordChar() with a value of '*'. ES_PASSWORD does not seem to be a true window style attribute, but can the documentation point that out in an obvious manner? Nooooo! Mad | :mad:

Anyway, see if that won't give you a cleaner solution. It's working well for us in our shop.

Just remember... Offer void where prohibited. Your mileage may vary.

Later,
Dan

Don't try this at home!
