ToolBook's built-in Password feature is intended to protect your Native ToolBook file (your Book) from being accessed. The Password feature does not have any effect on a DHTML published lesson being viewed in a Web Browser.
Since ToolBook does not have a built-in way to password protect your DHTML lesson, you will need to add your own Password protection feature. There is no one way or right way to implement a password protection feature.
The following is our recommendation
- Use page 1 of your lesson as the Password entry page
- On this password entry page, add a Password text field (you'll find this in the Text Fields category of the catalog)
- Add a generic button to use as a submit button, giving it an appropriate caption such as OK or Submit
- Add some text to explain why this is being shown to the user
- Add other graphical effects (such as a rounded rectangle) to encompass all of this
- The password field catalog object will automatically mask the characters typed by the user.
- You can use the Actions Editor to analyze what the user typed, in order to determine if they typed the correct password.
- The Actions Editor logic (for the Submit Button) needed, in order to determine if the user typed the correct password, is:
