Hi I'm a bit new to Compact Framework development and I stumbled into a problem
I’m developing an application for win mobile 6.1
The first form is a login form that has 2 text boxes obviously – user and password
In the password field I set the passwordchar and as expected when you press a key it masks the real char.
The problem is that the application is for Hebrew users.
It the user field (without the passwordchar) without setting any default or language for the field the field starts with the cursor from right to left and key strokes are Hebrew characters as expected but when I Tab to the password field the cursor jumps to the left and when I check the text value of the textbox I see that the English chars were in English instead of Hebrew
There is no difference in the textbox properties between the user and the password fields except for the password char.
Is there any way to set the password field to behave like the user field (except for the password mask obviously) and accept Hebrew char’s?


sorry for the late response and thak you for the answer
problem solved.
it was f using the virtual keyboard instead of the physical one on the mobile solved the issue

try 2 textboxes.

don't set the 2nd to PasswordChar.

in turn - on the txt change event pop it into a global string and replace the last char with '*'

When you want to run comparisons /validations - make sure the last '*' isnt part fo the string.
