Events Yes

The Credentials element is a form input element, and can be added using New-PodeWebCredential. This will automatically add a username and password input fields to your form:

New-PodeWebCard -Content @(
    New-PodeWebForm -Name 'Example' -ScriptBlock {
        $username = $WebEvent.Data['Creds_Username']
        $password = $WebEvent.Data['Creds_Password']
    } -Content @(
        New-PodeWebCredential -Name 'Creds'

Which looks like below:



By default both the Username and Password fields are displayed, but you can control which ones are displayed by using the -Type parameter:

# both (this is the default)
New-PodeWebCredential -Name 'Example' -Type Username, Password

# just username
New-PodeWebCredential -Name 'Example' -Type Username

# just password
New-PodeWebCredential -Name 'Example' -Type Password

Display Name

By default the label displays the -Name of the element. You can change the value displayed by also supplying an optional -DisplayName value; this value is purely visual, when the user submits the form the value of the element is still retrieved using the -Name from $WebEvent.Data.
