SecureTextField   statement / function

Statement syntax
securetextfield tag, enabled, text, rect, wndTag

Function syntax
text = securetextfield(tag)

The securetextfield statement puts a new securetextfield in the current output window, or alters an existing securetextfield's characteristics. The securetextfield function returns the field's text as a CFStringRef and is equivalent to calling fn ControlStringValue.

tag A number (1 through 1000000) that you assign when you create the securetextfield and that you refer to when altering the field. The number you assign must be different from the tag value of all other existing widgets in the current window. A negative tag hides the securetextfield.
enabled A boolean value which specifies whether the securetextfield should be enabled or disabled.
text The text that initially appears inside the securetextfield.
rect The securetextfield's enclosing rectangle. This can be specified in either of two ways:
(i) (x,y,w,h) where x,y are the origin and w,h the size of the field.
(ii) A CGRect value
wndTag An optional parameter for when the securetextfield's window is not the current output window. Note specifying this parameter does not bring the window to the front or make it the output window.
