Secure TextField cannot read inputted text

    I have a TextField (txtPassword) and I have set the property to "Secure Text Mode" on the inspector so users can enter passwords.
    I am trying to read what the user has typed on this secured TextField by using the following:
    txtPassword.text and it gives me the actual dots that cover the entry ......
    txtPassword.rawText it gives me a null value

    Am I doing something wrong? How can i read the value of a Secured Text Field??

    Thanks !!

    @marco was this ever fixed? I'm running into the same issue. Secure text mode for a TextField returns ******** (dots) when you do TextField.text
