TP4 password protection


So this may be a dumb question, but I am attempting to add password protection to some buttons using TP4, and I see the password protection option under the general tab, but I can't find where to set the 4 available passwords. I've looked through all of the options and help, I've searched on here but couldn't find anything.

Any help would be appreciated.

    These are managed within the panel itself. The modero X panel at my desk sequece was: SETTINGS > CONFIGURATION>ADMIN>PASSWORDS

    You can set passwords in the touch panel's setup page. Or you could do it from code which is actually more secure in that all one would need to do to get around your protected button is do a simple "push" from NS by "Emulating" a device or even reassigning another touch panel to that device id.

    Or, set the passwords with NetLinx code, ie like this:
    //panel passwords
    PASSWORD_1 = '1234'
    PASSWORD_2 = '3456'
    PASSWORD_3 = '5678'
    DATA_EVENT [dvaTP]
      { [INDENT]   //set panel passwords[/INDENT]
      [INDENT]    SEND_COMMAND dvaTP[nPanel],"'^PWD-1,',PASSWORD_1"
        SEND_COMMAND dvaTP[nPanel],"'^PWD-2,',PASSWORD_2"
        SEND_COMMAND dvaTP[nPanel],"'^PWD-3,',PASSWORD_3"[/INDENT]
