Can’t use TextBoxWatermarkExtender on Password Textbox in ASP.NET

On my new site I wanted to have the “fancy” text in the textbox that would clear once someone clicks in the box to start typing.


In ASP.NET there’s a nice AJAX extender called TextBoxWatermarkExtender that allows for this to happen, except if you set your textbox to type “password”, what ever work you add to the watermark shows as ********.

Thanks to this link: Display WaterMark text for Password TextBox in ASP.Net. I had my username and password up and showing in no time.
