TextBoxControl: Disable copy/cut when UseSystemPasswordChar is true

When UseSystemPasswordChar  is set to true, the copy/cut from the text field must be disabled. This includes both keyboard commands (Ctrl+C and Ctrl+X) and context menu on right click.

Hello, Damien,

The fix about this issue was introduced in our latest R3 2020 (version 2020.3.915). Could you please make sure that you refer to dlls from the latest version in your project. Sometimes, after an upgrade, the GAC folder may have more that one version. Please refer to the following help article on how to examine the GAC and ensure that there is just the latest version: https://docs.telerik.com/devtools/winforms/knowledge-base/examine-the-gac 

You should carefully check the references to all Telerik controls in your project and make sure that they are the same version considering the suffix as well (.20 or .40). Better yet, you can remove all references and add them anew by using the DLLs from your fresh installation. Delete the license.licx file. After that, you should rebuild your project, close Visual Studio, and open it again to make sure that no references are kept in the memory by Visual Studio.

I hope this information helps.

Regards,
Nadya

I have updated to R3 2020 this morning and have tested this with the UseSystemPasswordChar set to true, yet it allows the Ctrl+C to copy the hidden password. What am I missing?

Hello,

A workaround, until the issue is fixed, would be to disable the context menu in the text field and to clear the clipboard on KeyDown event, when Ctrl+X and Ctrl+C are used.
