[izpack-users] How to use Password field in the UserInputPanel?

Welcome !
Here it is, it's pretty simple.
In userinput.xml add this:

<field type="password" variable="PWD">
   <description align="left" txt="" id="description11.text"/>
    <pwd txt="-> Type the password for the connection:" id="pwd.label" size="10" set=""/>
    <pwd txt="-> Retype the password for the connection:" id="pwd.label2" size="10" set=""/>
   <validator class="com.izforge.izpack.sample.PWDValidator" txt="Both versions of the password must match" id="error.label"/>

This will show two password fields with stars as you enter the text...
You can see that there's a validator which will check that both password matches. If you want to use that you need to add a jar to the install.xml as follows:

<jar src="pwdcheck.jar" stage="install" />

this pwdcheck.jar can be obtained by a simple jar command from the izpack-src\src\lib folder.
Use the bat or sh file depending on your OS as follows:
createPWD.bat pwdcheck.jar

Then copy this jar to the root of your installation folder or to any relativepath which means that you should change 
<jar src="pwdcheck.jar" stage="install" />
into this:
<jar src="yourpath/pwdcheck.jar" stage="install" />

I can also send you the jar if needed... but it's really easy to do ;-)

Hope this helps,
