How to Create a Password Input Field with jQuery?

Estimated read time 2 min read

To create a password input field with jQuery, you can simply use the type="password" attribute on an HTML input element. Here’s an example:

<label for="password-input">Password:</label>
<input type="password" id="password-input">

In this example, we have a label element and an input element with the ID “password-input”. The type attribute of the input element is set to “password”, which tells the browser to mask the user’s input with asterisks or bullets.

If you want to add some additional features to your password input field, you can use jQuery to manipulate the DOM or add event listeners to the input field. For example, you could add a button that toggles the visibility of the password:

<label for="password-input">Password:</label>
<input type="password" id="password-input">
<button id="password-toggle">Show</button>

<script>
	$(document).ready(function(){
		var passwordInput = $("#password-input");
		var passwordToggle = $("#password-toggle");
		
		passwordToggle.click(function(){
			if(passwordInput.attr("type") == "password"){
				passwordInput.attr("type", "text");
				passwordToggle.text("Hide");
			}
			else{
				passwordInput.attr("type", "password");
				passwordToggle.text("Show");
			}
		});
	});
</script>

In this example, we have added a button element with the ID “password-toggle”. We use jQuery to listen for clicks on the button, and toggle the visibility of the password input field using the attr() method to change the type attribute of the input element.

When the button is clicked, we check the current value of the type attribute using the attr() method. If the value is “password”, we change it to “text” and update the text of the button to “Hide”. If the value is already “text”, we change it back to “password” and update the text of the button to “Show”.
