Subject: Improving Tasks


/*
1. Provide for a masked input field so that it could be used to prompt for a password that
would remain   unreadable to anyone looking over the users shoulder. (I envision adding a
'mask="true"' parameter to make that possible with the default for 'mask' being 'false'.)

*/

There's already a task = Kasisoft.

"Task allowing to run a dialog within a build used to setup some properties. This way you
can fill a property with the input of a user."

The given url on Ant site 

http://www.kasisoft.de/build/ant/interactive/ 

is not working anymore (404), but i could mail it to you, if you're interested

It's easy to add a "masked" (******) password field.

/* 
2. I'm thinking about adding the capability of having a radio button group and/or drop down
lists so that there are some additional ways for users to provide input.

The problem here is that I haven't any real idea how to go about this.  
*/

Could possibly also be done with expanding the original kasisoft task ?

btw =

The license for the kasisoft task is given as LGPL.
I'm no specialist for license, does anyone know the details about LGPL :

May i give it to someone else, may i change it the way i like ?

Regards, Gilbert
