At least for this one, Bruce, quite spontaneously: There is 
TextBox.Password which can be activated by setting it to True. Setting 
it back to False should make the contents visible. Or doesn't it have an 
effect during runtime?

The other question is that of a button which stays activated during 
mouse key press only. Maybe this could be solved by a timer, with a 
certain time lapse, but there might be more direct ways via Mouse events...
