    there is a format mask property right-click the text-item, select propert palette and locate format mask - click help no the main menu and type 'format mask' in the seacrh index, many examples for different masks will appear

    From document A32505-1 (it's about Forms 4.5 but you will find the subsequent property even in Oracle9i Forms):

    "Hiding Text Item Values: You can hide the value stored in a single–line
    text item by designating the item as secure. For example, a password
    text item can be made secure so that operator input does not echo to
    the screen.
    To hide the value entered into a text item:
    1. In the Navigator, select the desired text item.
    2. In the Properties window, set the Secure property to True."

    I hope it's useful.
