--> right click on your edit control and set property 'Password" as true
--> you can use database or .txt file to validate the password
ie user entry in the edit controlis matching with the password/passwords given in .txt or databse
--> if you dont want user to close window ( using ctrl+alt+delete/ alt+F4 /esc ) , swap between applications ( using alt+tab ) then use "systemparameterinfo" API Smile | :)
