Frame 1: This is the frame in which the user can type the password.

On the scripts layer:

Put a stop action on your first frame: Open the Actions panel, (Windows > Actions) and enter the following script in the Frame Action panel.

stop ();

This will stop the movie so that the user can enter the password into the text field.

On the labels layer:

Create frame label: start

On the buttons layer:

Place a button.

On the text Layer:

:Click and drag with the text tool to draw a rectangle. This rectangle is a "text field".

Click Window>Panels>Text Options to open the Text Options panel.

With the text field selected, click on the down arrow in the Text Options panel to reveal a drop down menu. Choose "Input Text". An Input Text field allows the user to type text into that text field, in this case, a password.

A set of options appropriate to this kind of text will now appear on theText Option panel. Choose from "Single Line", "Multi Line" or "Password".

Choose Single Line to display the text as one line, or Password to display the text the user types in as asterisks instead of letters, to hide the password.

Check Border/Bg square if you wish your text field to appear as a visible square in your movie. This helps your user to know where to click in order to start entering their password.

In Variable, name the text field, for example, myInput1.

On the text layer:

Type an instruction next to the text field.

For example, "Enter your password here." This text should be set as static text on the Text Options panel, not Input text.
