    Default Combine JFormattedTextField with JPassword functionality?

    Seem to be doing a LOT of work trying to extend JFormattedTextField to add JPassword-like functionality.....
    Anyone ever do this before?
    Any thoughts on a simple approach? My particular use case is entry of a SSN in a non-secure (prying eyes watching the screen) environment.

    What type of formatting are you using? Are you just trying to validate that the characters entered are numeric? If so, then use a JPasswordTextField and use a DocumentFilter to validate the character as they are entered.

    What are your reasons for not using JPasswordField?

    Customer wants the automatic and untouchable 'dashes' in the SSN field element...so the need for both JFormattedTextField coexists with the JPassword field.
    :(
