I have been writing an Atlas Extender control using the Atlas control toolkit in my spare time lately, and I thought I'd share its progress with everyone so far. It's certainly not complete and is a bit raw, but it does display the strength of the password you are entering into a textbox interactively.
Note: Apologies for the ugliness of the page, but its only a test bed, so bear with me.
Any suggestions would be welcome but bear in mind, its early days with it, and I'll update it as I get time. I intend to provide other display types instead of just a texual dsplay, such as a bar inicator, perhaps some other graphical thingo. Opacity is always a crowd pleaser, I am sure I can find a cool way to utilise that in there somewhere. Not sure yet.
It will be provided with full source code once complete, and I think I'll provide a step by step tutorial on how its implemented too. I will say the Atlas control toolkit does make things a lot easier. Kudos to Shawn Burke and his team for a job well done.
