    Re: jPasswordField ......Kent....



    I think that even though jPassword extends JTextField it seems that the methods
    setText have been deprecated or I don't know how to access them.

    Rob,

    Bizarre. I've used the setText() method several times on a JPasswordField
    in a project I'm currently working on and it works fine. What JDK / JRE version
    are you using? What does your API doco say about the setText() method? What
    compilation / runtime error are you receiving?

    Regards,
    Kent
