password_field(object_name, method, options = {}) public

Returns an input tag of the “password” type tailored for accessing a specified attribute (identified by method) on an object assigned to the template (identified by object). Additional options on the input tag can be passed as a hash with options. These options will be tagged onto the HTML as an HTML element attribute as in the example shown. For security reasons this field is blank by default; pass in a value via options if this is not desired.
