editBox = guiCreateEdit( 0.3, 0.1, 0.4, 0.1, "", true )
-- ensure that it is masked
guiEditSetMasked ( editBox, true )

-- set up our function to output the message to the chatbox
function checkPassword ()
        local text = guiGetText ( editBox )     -- get the text from the edit box
        if text == password then                -- if the text matches the password
                outputChatBox ( "Password Correct!" )
