Password field in start page settings


What we need is for site admin to be able to setup an SMTP server's credentials on the site's start page. In that case the admin will need to provide server's address, username and password. Is there a way to flag a start page's property as a password so when the field is created in the editor it is of type "password"?

You Could try to set ClientEditor and use ValidationTextBox as class

namespace Alloy.Models.Pages
    public class TestPage : SitePageData
        [ClientEditor(ClientEditingClass = "dijit.form.ValidationTextBox", EditorConfiguration = "{type: 'password'}")]
        public virtual string Pwd { get; set; }

Thanks for posting the answer. This made it a whole lot simpler and faster to mask password fields. But, this worked for me with forward slashes in the ClientEditingClass. So, instead of dijit.form.ValidationTextBox, I had to use dijit/form/ValidationTextBox.

That worked as a charm. Thank you!
