# Password cell type

# Overview

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 event HTML. Note that you can't change the symbol used by the input field due to browser limitations.
