I have set the password property True.
What else can I do to encrypt this password before writing it in my App.config file?
Did you just set the "Password"
attribute to "True"
for your control?
If that is the case, please note that setting that attribute will hide the password from the UI (e.g. using "*" instead of a normal character). However, when written in the config file, it will be written in plain text.
If you want to encrypt it, please proceed as it follows:
- go to "Install Parameters"
- under "Properties"
section, check the "Show properties with empty values or used in dialog controls"
- select the property assigned to your control and double click on it
- in the "Edit property"
dialog, check the "Secure Property"
option and add a "Comment"
