Button to change text input mode from password to single line

I have a value that is semi-sensitive, so we don't want it displayed by default. So I have set the text input mode to password. However, we may need to know what the value is, or change it.  Is there a way to change the field mode to single line via a button press? I can't seem to figure out how... I've been experimenting around TextInput1.Mode = SingleLine

Set your button to a variable:

UpdateContext(

     varInputMode, !varInputMode)

})

Set the Mode of the Text Input box to the following:

If(
varinputMode = true,
TextMode.Password,
TextMode.SingleLine)

Thank you! Minor syntax adjustments, but you got me there. I was clearly over thinking it. 🙂

 

In button OnSelect 

UpdateContext({varInputMode:!varInputMode})

 

Text Input Mode

If(varInputMode=true,TextMode.SingleLine,TextMode.Password)
