Problem setting text for a password asp.net textbox
This short article outlines a quirk of the textbox control in
Asp.Net, when set to password mode. If you try and use
myTextBox.Text = ….; it doesn't happen.
You might want to use something like this if you are presenting
users with the facility to change a password, and you want to give them
the option of changing their password, shown in stars, by simply
deleting the stars and typing in a new one. To accomplish this,
use the following syntax:
myTextBox.Attributes("Value") = someString;
I can't think of a good reason ms built it this way at all. oh for .net 2.0...
