Create a password entry dialog for entering a password that is visibly hidden. Java must be enabled for this function to work properly.
It has only been tested on the Windows platform in MATLAB R2008a. It should work in R2007a or later.
The password box is created using the Java Swing component JPasswordField.
NOTE: The password is only visibly hidden and can be accessed in memory.
