How to retrieve a Password from the eBook?

Carlos Passwords have an ID that are related to the Predefined variable {p}.

How can I get and display, in the eBook, the Password of a specific ID from the eBook's password list? (not from an external list).

I think this is possible as the eBooks that are password protected have the passwords list inside them.

EBookCompiler In the Edit Security screen there are options to save the passwords into various files, like JavaScript etc.

You could copy this file into the source, editing if necessary, and write code to display it

Something like, in JavaScript

var passwordnumber = ParseInt( window.external.ActivGet('{p}') ) ;

then use passwordnumber as a reference into the array of passwords

Does that help?

Carlos Yes it helps,

But just to understand the process eBook checks for the correct password...

Aren't the passwords list stored in the eBook when we create them?

EBookCompiler The password list is in the e-book, but at present their is no way to get info out of it programmatically

Pretty much all you can do is
1. Ask the user to enter the password if it's not been entered yet
2. Tell if the user has entered the correct password yet.
