I want to prompt for a password using an editable-text-dialog-item
or the like, but I don't want the characters to be echoed.
Actually, the best would be if it could be like the Appleshare
prompt which uses blobs.
I've tried intercepting the key-event handler, but if I replace
the char I loose the text.
I've tried intercepting the draw-contents handler, but it
doesn't seem to be called char by char.
If you set the font type to :srcBic which makes the chars
invisible - this will work buth it's not very elegant...
