It's little tricks like these...

Sometimes you stumble upon a hidden feature of software that just makes you smile. Someone thought about something before I knew I wanted it there!

Today I was creating a new Soap UI test project and I needed to put a password somewhere to use in an authentication request. I decided to create a new property in my test case, called "password". And just as I did, i thought "This means I'll have to display the password in plain text. Oh, well - that kind of sucks, but it's ok".
But, what happens?

The password is masked automatically, simply because the property is called "password". I know it's small and silly- but it is these things that make our lives easier!
