I did this with something much more complicated - storing the test in a
custom property as it is typed. Your way is better.

You'll need to make your own window, as the dialog presented by "ask
password" is not customizable beyond the prompt text. But, there is no
built-in "Password" style for fields.
Here is what I thought was a very simple solution to that:
1) Include a tiny image (such as a 10x10 pixel padlock) in your stack. I
named mine "tinyPadlock."
2) Attach this script to the field used for password entry:
-- enable masking of password during entry
repeat with i = 1 to the number of characters in me
if the imagesource of char i of me is not "tinyPadlock" then
set the imagesource char i of me to "tinyPadlock"
This handles whatever someone might do in the field, masks their input,
still allows you to access the content of the field as if the password
masking was not used.
I put a small sample file up on Rev Online so you can see how it works.
