PassWord 4.x applet

How do I get an encrypt password?

This already was a frequently asked question for the previous versions.
So I expect it to be the same for this version.
I'm going to answer this here.

In very short you should add this tag:
<PARAM NAME="is_password_calculator"VALUE="true">
And you should omit this one:
<PARAM NAME="password_echo_character" VALUE="x">

TIP: you can use the windows clipboard to get the result.
This way you don't have to retype the result.
This is how it works.

  1. enter the user name
  2. enter the filename
  3. Ther is an enter button op the applet, click on it
    The applet will convert the filename into an encrypted string.
    (If not: did you add /omitted the above tags?)
  4. select the encrypted text.
    This can be done with the mouse drag or the arrow keys while holding down shift.
    Press ctrl and c simultaneously; now the string is copied to your clipboard.
  5. You can now paste this text by pressing ctrl and v simultaneously into another application.
    You can also paste it with the edit menu of your application.
    So open notepad select edit menu then the paste item.
    You can also paste in Ms Outlook or any other Windows application.
    Great tip isn't it.
For the non-experts I'll explain how you add an applet to an html page.

An applet is added to an html page by inserting the applet tags.
(Between the <body> and </body> tags.)
There are three kinds of applet tags.
  1. The applet starting tag
    <APPLET CODE="FileName.class" WIDTH="123" HEIGHT "345">
  2. The applet parameter tags <PARAM NAME="x" VALUE="1">
  3. The applet ending tag </APPLET>
The applet starting tag:
<APPLET CODE="FileName.class" WIDTH="123" HEIGHT="123">
CODE tells the browser what the main class file of the applet is.
Files with class extensions are compiled Java programs.
Width and height are the applet size.
There is also a third attribute CODEBASE.
You shouldn't use codebase with this applet!
CODEBASE tells the browser the path to the main applet class file.
(Don't add a path with the code attribute)

The applet's parameter tags:
<PARAM NAME="x" VALUE="1">
There could be several parameter tags.
The values are read by the applet as plain text.
It's to the applet programmer to convert them to the right type.
Parameter tags are used to convert the applet to the whishes of the page designer.

The applet ending tag
</APPLET>
This closes the applet tags.
No more parameter tags should follow now.

Object tags ?
There is also another way to add an applet to an html page.
This is whit the <OBJECT> TAG.
The object tag is quite complex and you don't need it.
The object tag is used to load an applet with the java plug-in
It's possible to install a higher Java version on your browser.
This is called a Java plug-in
This applet doesn't require a high Java version.

The object tag also forces people to download an 8Mb Java plug-in.
This I consider a bad idea for an html page.
