Secure TextBox Updated
There has been quite some interest in my SecureTextBox control that I developed. Basically it offers textual entry via a standard textbox, but uses the SecureString as its internal storage. Typically aimed at entering passwords and similar secure information on a windows form.
Domink Zemp recently downloaded the control and has been using it with good success. He was also nice enough to forward some changes and improvements to the control to better handle the TAB, ENTER and ESCAPE keys. The new code has been posted on my site here. (http://www.theglavs.com/DownloadItem.aspx?FileID=46).
Incidentally, its been one of my more popular downloads. Its now clocked in at around 2500 downloads and steadily climbing.
It had a good plug from one of the Microsoft guys over in Hong Kong too. You can read about it here. It was used as collateral for a security presentation that was being delivered. Pretty cool.
Anyway, special thanks to Dominik who was nice enough to send through the changes to improve the control. Its always nice to hear from the community, how something is going, after you've let something loose in the community.
Update: I have recently
updated this control based on "Wout's" bug fixes and changes and also
added a new feature to confirm clearing the clipboard when you paste in
some text. (Note: See comments below). Thanks Wout!
