Is there any easy way to make it so that when people are typing a password into a text box, it only displays ***'s, because I know in html you only have to specify it's a password box and it does it automatically. Is that possible in vb? Or would I have to save each character as it's pressed and then display a * and put it all together when they hit enter?

(p.s. those stars (*) are actually supposed to be stars, not a blanked out word)

Yes, it's very easy, just look into the properties of a textbox, there is an option called passwordchar, just fill in whatever you want to be your replacement
