Declaration [src]

gtk_entry_set_visibility (
  GtkEntry* entry,
  gboolean visible

Description [src]

Sets whether the contents of the entry are visible or not. When visibility is set to FALSE, characters are displayed as the invisible char, and will also appear that way when the text in the entry widget is copied elsewhere.

By default, GTK+ picks the best invisible character available in the current font, but it can be changed with gtk_entry_set_invisible_char().

Note that you probably want to set GtkEntry:input-purpose to GTK_INPUT_PURPOSE_PASSWORD or GTK_INPUT_PURPOSE_PIN to inform input methods about the purpose of this entry, in addition to setting visibility to FALSE.

Sets propertyGtk.Entry:visibility



Type: gboolean

TRUE if the contents of the entry are displayed as plaintext.
