How to verify the password entered in the JavaFX password field?

Object Oriented ProgrammingProgrammingJavaFX

The text field accepts and displays the text. In the latest versions of JavaFX, it accepts only a single line.

Similar to the text field a password field accepts text but instead of displaying the given text, it hides the typed characters by displaying an echo string.

In JavaFX the javafx.scene.control.PasswordField represents a password field and it inherits the Text class. To create a password field you need to instantiate this class.

This class inherits a property named text from its superclass TextInputControl. This property holds the contents of the current password field. You can retrieve this data using the getText() method.

Password typed − mypassword
