Hiding text of a string (like passwords) - not logindlg function

I need to set an "Edit Text" as a password input area, and I want the text entered by users is not visible, but replaced by symbols.
I'd like to have some indication to create my function. I already saw the video by Doug Hull about how to crypt the pwd, but I have to create a function because I already have a gui structure, and I have to set it after
function PWD_Callback(hObject, eventdata, handles)
Do you have any idea on how to set up work?
Thanks in advance!

Have you searched in this forum and found this:
? I assume one of these submissions contains enough useful code to be copied to your project.

The very first one in Jan's list, "passcode', displays the symbol to a different area than where the text is entered, and thus would never be displaying the character entered.

Did you see the File Exchange submissions on passwords. Most or all of those have a function that pops up a small gui and asks for, and masks, the username and password. http://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/fileexchange/?term=password
