Use the password cell type to mask confidential values by rendering entered characters as symbols.
In this article
The password cell type behaves like a text cell, the only difference being that it masks its value using asterisks in the cell renderer. An
<input type="password"> field is used for the cell editor. Data is stored in the data source as plain text.
Fixed hash length
By default, every hash has a length equal to the length of its corresponding value. Use option
hashLength to set a fixed hash length.
Custom hash symbol
By default, every hash consists of asterisks
*. Use the option
hashSymbol to set a custom hash symbol. You can use any character, entity, or even HTML. Note that you can't change the symbol used by the input field due to browser limitations.
