I'm looking for a way to store sensitive data in odoo. eg. vpn key's etc. I would like to use a 'password reveal button' that shows a password for a couple of seconds. The passwords are stored in a field, the fields are in a tree view.
(Yes I know that storing such data is questinable, but imo it is better to do it this way than putting it in an excel file)

I guess this will be some javascript. Can anyone help me with this onse, or give me some clues?

Do it like this:


By passing in numbers to .show() and .hide(), jQuery will take those methods into its internal fx queue (even if the number is zero). Since .delay() only works within a queue, you need that little workaround.
