    Resolved [RESOLVED] login form from another function

    guys,
    I can easily use the input box method for taking the PIN. But that is not helping as INPUT method does not support password masking. So here it is:

    Code:
    Public Sub checkCard()
         Public Function Authenticate() As Integer
              If (pinVerification(userPIN)) Then
                    Return 1
              Else
              end if
    
    end Sub
    
    Public Function pinVerification(ByVal pin As String) As Boolean
    Dim message, title, defaultValue As String
            Dim passCode As Object
            ' Set prompt.
            message = "Enter the PIN code"
            ' Set title.
            title = "Authentication"
            defaultValue = ""   ' Set default value.
            ' Display message, title, and default value.
            passCode = InputBox(message, title, defaultValue) ---> This is where I want to make the change
            ' If user has clicked Cancel, set myValue to defaultValue 
            If passCode Like "" Then
                passCode = defaultValue
            End If
            'If passCode Like defaultValue Then
            'MsgBox("Wrong Passcode", MsgBoxStyle.OkOnly, "Alert!")
            'End If
            If (String.Compare(passCode, pin) = 0 And isLockeddown = False) Then
                Return True
            Else
                Return False
            End If
    end sub
    so, the function call and returns are the things that i want, but this should be also via a std form for password masking.

    any ideas??

    For me to provide you with a direct link, I would have to click the aforementioned CodeBank link in my signature and then look down the list of threads until I found the right one. Why are you any less able to do that than I am?

    Then you probably didn't do something right. But since you didn't show us the code you DID try, it would be foolish for us to try and help.
