    Cool Using a password field

    I tried to use one, but I can't figure out how to set one up.

    Do you add it to a separate JFrame?

    I'm gonna try this(though where do I put it in the Window Listener? I'm thinking windowOpened()).

    public JPasswordFrame extends JFrame()
    private JPasswordField field;
    private JLabel label;
    private JButton ok;
    public JPasswordFrame()
    setTitle("Enter password");
    label = new JLabel("Enter password here.");
    field = new JPasswordField();
    ok = new JButton("Ok");
    public String getPasswordText()
    return field.getText();

    Now what?

    I'd like it to work inside a JFrame and have JPasswordFrame come up and not go away or let the user into the JFrame until they get it right.
