The password field in a form is the designated field for users to enter a password in your form. It is a field that doesn’t display what the user types. Each keystroke is represented on the field by a placeholder bullet, so that someone looking over the user’s shoulder can’t see what they type.
In this entry, we’ll show you all the options available for the text field with Nelio Forms.
Adding a Password Field to Your Form
When creating a new form or editing an existing one, adding an additional password field is as easy as adding a new Password field block in the block editor. You can use the Block Inserter + icon, or a shortcut slash command or use the More options on any of the block’s toolbar to insert a block.
You may change its descriptive label (the default label is “Password”) and you have the option to have this label displayed or not on the form.
You can also type a placeholder in the field, which is especially recommended if don’t display the label of the password field in the form.
Password Field Settings
In the sidebar, you can set the the following password field properties:
- Limit the minimum number of characters the user should type on the field,
- Limit the maximum text length,
- Set whether the field must be filled in the form to be submitted,
- Set whether the field label should be shown or hidden.
Moreover, as any other block, you can add additional CSS classes to change the styling of the block.
