How to Password Protect a Window


Within EasyBuilder Pro, you possess the capability to enhance security by applying password protection to a window. To achieve this protection, we will force the user to log in before accessing a window.

Software Version:

EasyBuilder Pro


  1. Within the home tab, select “System Parameters”:

  2. In the “System Parameters”, navigate to the “Security” tab. This is where you can configure the number of users you prefer by selecting the “enable” button next to a defined user name and password:

  3. Each enabled user may be assigned a set of security classes by selecting the corresponding “Class” check box in the user’s row. The “Class” is used to restrict access to certain objects, as objects can be modified to only allow action by users with certain class permissions:

  4. Create a “Function Key” object. This can be found within the “Object” tab. Then, within the “General” tab, select “Window” as the type. Select “Change full-screen window” as the “Function”. For this demonstration, I’m restricting access to a specific window, so I’ve selected it within the “Window no” box:

  5. Navigate to the “Security” tab, and within the “User Restriction” section, select the “Object class” requirement needed to access this object to change windows to the protected window. In the example below, a class requirement of class A is needed to access the protected window:

  6. For the user to log into a user account, we will create another “Function Key” object that will display the “Login” window.

  7. Within the “Function Key” object, opt for “Display Popup Window” as the designated function. Select “70. Login & Logout” as the “Window No.” This predefined login window is available within each project. Should you opt for a customized login page, create one and input its corresponding window number in the “Window No.” field:

  8. To access a protected window, the user must log in by using the “Login” window called by the function key object. If the user account meets the class requirements, they can interact with the protected function key object to change windows to the protected window:
    Note: Click the “Enter” key after you enter the password.
