 accept password without displaying input ?

Is there a way in .vbs to accept input string and hiding what is typed, such
as when accepting
a password ?. It can be text based or GUI based.

Thanks
Andres

"hiding" as in completely invisible, or "hiding" as in masked (covered by
stars etc)?

Hi

Assuming that WSH is the script host:

If all your target computers have IE installed, you can use IE from a VBScript
hosted by WSH to ask for a password, masking the input. When the user clicks the
OK button, the vbscript retrieves the password from IE. See the function
PasswordBox in this article:

<input type=password> instead of <input type=text>

Does that do what you're after?
