Re: validating hidden field

        Reply to:   RE>>validating hidden fields

I know you can't validate password fields because it involves security
implications. It is my guess that Sun is waiting for the most of the security
issues to evolve before allowing this type of capability. The idea behind
type="password" is to not allow access to the value.
I hope this helps,

Also, if anyone knows, can I validate a password field? The first time I tried

to see if the password field contained numbers I couldn't get it to work since
the field return *'s as the value. Can anyone tell me if I did something
wrong or am I missing something obvioius?

Thanks in advance.
