  Sample input:
Mask ( theText )
  Sample output:
(where theText = "password")

  Function definition: (Copy & paste into FileMaker's Edit Custom Function window)

Replaces a text string with a string of asterisks of the same length.

Use to mask value in a displayed text field, similar to the Use Password Character Input Field option in the Show Custom Dialog Script Step.

Use this only for display, such as in a custom dialog; the actual text should exist elsewhere.
