Thread: getPassword()?

Threaded View

    I'm having a bit of a problem trying to check if a given password is present in an array of password strings:

    for(int a=0; a<passwords.length; a++)
    if(passwords[a].equals(tfPassword.getPassword())) {

    System.out.println("pass match ok");

    The same code (using int i instead of int a) is working fine for checking the username, so I'm wondering if this is because the getPassword() method returns a char instead of a string. If that's the case, I've got a problem casting the char to a string, but this must be something that's done all the time, so any answers would be greatly appreciated

    <edit> Yup, must be what I thought, because it works if you take the echo character out and set the password field as a standard textfield. Still grateful for any solutions
