Instance Property


Identifies whether the text object should disable text copying and in some cases hide the text being entered.


@property(nonatomic, getter=isSecureTextEntry) BOOL secureTextEntry;


This property is set to NO by default. Setting this property to YES in any view that conforms to UITextInputTraits disables the user’s ability to copy the text in the view. Setting this property to YES in a UITextField object additionally enables a password-style experience, in which the text being entered is obscured.
