    you could use my password textbox available as a dll in the adicional libraries..
    It alows you to even scramble (simple way9) the text before returning it...or not(to scamble)...

    On the device only multiline textboxes support other text alignments. So when you set this property, the textbox first changes to be multiline.
    Unfortunately multiline textboxes do not support the password pattern.
    So you can't combine SetPasswordTextBox and TextAlignment.

    I do not perform alignment on this specific box.
    Changing the box to multiline didn't help.

    I think that because I have also Hebrew in my device, alignment is performed automatically and this is what "kills" the password function.

    Never mind :)

    Problems to run on the device

    I attach a small guessing game which runs nicely on the desktop but with strange behaviour on the device:
    The guessTB do not get the numbers which are sent by the Sender , and display of the results is only partial.

    Appreciate if someone will check it (may also enjoy the game...) and report if it runs on his device.
    I suspect something to do with the fact that I have Hebrew installed.


    The problem is solved by adding Formlib with these lines:

    but I still do not understand why it is necessary ...

    It works fine here (on a device).
    It is probably related to the Hebrew installation.
