hi,

I create the password fields this way:

$password_field = new ConfirmedPasswordField('Password','Password',NULL,NULL,NULL,'Password');

If I insert different values to both fields, I get the error that the fields dont match, thats ok so far.
But after submit in the second password field is the same value as in the first field ... and the user
can just submit again and the both pwds match ...

why that?

how to clear password fields after submit?

If you are writing straight into a member object, you can use SetPassword as the field name instead of Password.

hi pigeon,

sorry, I dont understand what you mean.
I submit my form and there are errors on the form because I typed in 2 different passwords - they dont match.

Password: john
Password again: john123

After submit my form is populated again with all the values I entered the first time. Also the 2 password fields are
populated again, but with this values:

Password: john
Password again: john

How I can avoid this? Or how can I clear the password fields after an error?

I mean, try this:

$password_field = new ConfirmedPasswordField('SetPassword','Password',NULL,NULL,NULL,'Password');
