Guys, is it possible to create a fields which will not display characters while typing ?

Password like field. Dots or something instead ?

It seems that it is just impossible right ?

Must create a widget or something i guess.

If this is the answer it means that I'm s.........omehow blind :) Tried all other like type="password", widget="password" :)

Thank you Ray :)

Up vote for you :)

Where have you seen a place in Odoo where you type something in and see ****** ?

Perhaps the login page, the email server configuration page, payment acquirers etc?

Each uses the password attribute to mask passwords entered by users.

<field name"sensitive_field" password="True" >
