Here's how to create a html password field input.


Masked text field is used for passwords. What user typed won't be shown.

<label for="passwordBox29732">password:</label>
<input id="passwordBox29732" type="password" size="30" maxlength="30" name="password">

<span id="showBox13293"></span></p>
const passwordBox29732 = document. getElementById ('passwordBox29732');
const showBox13293 = document. getElementById ('showBox13293');

const f_update = (() => { showBox13293 .textContent = showBox13293.value; });

passwordBox29732.addEventListener ('input', f_update, false);
