Password Item

Having a report with a form contains a password item. Since this is a password item, the content of the item is displayed with stars.

In the automatic row fetch, the password item is retrieved but not displayed in the form. When the password item is a required item and immediately submit is entered, an error is generated that the item is null

If the password item is changed to be a text field instead, no error occurs.
