Hi there,

We're opening a website in our C# windows app by using EO.WebBrowser WebView. On start, it asks for username and password. It opened browser's dialog to ask user for credentials. Problem we are facing is, password field isn't working properly, behaving just like a normal input field. It's unmasking entered password, not replacing entered characters with bullets (‚óŹ) or asterisks (*). When we open the same site in a browser like Chrome or IE, it's working fine i.e. masking those entered characters with bullets.

It's not the case with every password field. We face this unmasking issue only with browser's dialog. I tried with opening few other sites with dedicated login page and it's working fine. Problem is with that popup opening within browser. We're using 20.0.53.0 version.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for posting in the forum. This is a bug on our end in the default login dialog. We will fix this on our side in our next build. In the mean time, you can handle the WebView's NeedCredentials event and display your own UI that asks user for user name and password:

https://www.essentialobjects.com/doc/eo.webbrowser.webview.needcredentials.aspx

Once you handle this event, the built-in UI will no longer be used. Inside your event handler you can display your own UI, then call e.Continue with the user name and password user entered when user clicks "OK" in your dialog and do nothing if user clicks "Cancel" in your dialog.

Hi,

Currently we do not have a set release date yet. If anything significant surface we may push the release early. However because we do release update regularly, I would expect to have an update at least within this month.

Thanks!
