Subject New Feature Request - passwordChar on <input> task
Date Thu, 05 May 2005 19:31:49 GMT
Hello all,
I have created some targets that run <sql> tasks and for determing the user name &
password information to use (for the DB login) I use the <input> task, i.e.
<target name="update_build">
     <input addproperty="" message="What is your database name"/>
     <input addproperty="db.password" message="What is your database password"/>
It would be great to have an optional attribute of the <input> task, let's say called
passwordChar, that if set would control which character(s) to display instead of echoing the
keyboard input.  So you could use
     <input addproperty="db.password" passwordChar="*" message="What is your database password"/>
and all that would show up as the user types would a series of * (astericks)...
What do you guys think??
