Thread: Password Generator

    Password Generator

    I wrote this Java applet for a class, I was hoping I could get some feedback, I think I want to continue it's development, either for others use, or just for programming experience. Its a password generator, but it's used to make passwords that are easier to type out, for lazy people. Give me some feedback if you feel like. Included in the .zip are a html, a .class, and a readme.

    How does it work? I chose a hand and clicked generate and nothing happened. I don't get it. And why no source?

    edit
    I tried it in IE CXG and it didn't seem to work, it loaded but the generate button wouldn't do anything.

    Ahh, I forgot to say, you gotta type a number into that field on the right. That gives the length you want the password to be.

    Also, that applet works on the computer I made it on, but not this computer. If theres any problems with it, maybe you have to have java installed, or i'm just a sucky programmer. Ive seen it work on other machines, though... so maybe its just not compatible.

    Heres the source- check it out..

    Has anyone had any success getting this to work? Any suggestions to improve it?

    One suggestion: Make another box to input the password length. It confused me the first time.

    Works on my PC at home, for some reason it wouldn't work at school. Both i was using internet explorer. Also, the add security doesn't seem to do anything special. You should have it add any of these at random, @#$%&. All it seems to do is add an extra character. Still for what it is designed for, it seems to work. I don't know if I would use it but still a nice thing and a good example program for anyone looking to do something like this. Thank you for sharing.

    great ideas- that add security thing was really just to fulfill a requirement on a rubric. I'm gonna change it to add the !@#$ like h3r3tic said, and maybe a copy to clipboard feature so a keylogger wont pick it up. Or would it? When you paste, does a keylogger pick up a cntrl v, or does it pick up cntrl v, plus what you are pasting? Whatever, its off subject. Thanks for the input!

    now that I think of it, i installed java through a cd that came with my class's book. Would that do anything that could screw up compatibility? I use commandline javac to compile my programs. ???
