Crypt control

This control provides methods for encryption and decryption.


Some controls use the same methods.
For examples of the same methods look here.

Method Description
Crypt.Decrypt( text,password )
Crypt.Encrypt( text,password )
Crypt.Hash( text,mode )

Sample code

The code samples available from the IDE include a Security Encryption sample which demonstrates the use of this control.

Password check

The following code demonstrates the use of an md5 hash to check a password.

The first time a password is entered, its hash is saved. Every subsequent time, the password's hash is compared against the saved version.

If it does not match, the app does not continue.

//Called when application is started.
function OnStart()
    var chk = app.LoadText("hash","unset");
    var pass = prompt("Please enter password","");
    if (pass==null) app.Exit();
    var crypt = app.CreateCrypt();
    var md5 = crypt.Hash( pass, "MD5" );
    md5 = md5.substr(0,22);
    if (chk == "unset") app.SaveText("hash", md5)
    else if(chk != md5)
        app.ShowPopup("Incorrect password");
    //Create a layout with objects vertically centered.
    lay = app.CreateLayout( "linear", "VCenter,FillXY" );    
    //Create a text label and add it to layout.
    txt = app.CreateText( "Welcome" );
    txt.SetTextSize( 32 );
    lay.AddChild( txt );
    //Add layout to app.    
    app.AddLayout( lay );
