Here is the answer to THAT question(;-)

local Pword = "FrogLog"
local Pnum = 0

while Pnum <3 do
local Panswer = wx.wxGetPasswordFromUser("What is the Password ? ")
if Panswer == Pword then
            wx.wxMessageBox("The Password is " ..Panswer)
else
            wx.wxMessageBox("Wrong Password")
            Pnum =(Pnum+1)
    end

 end
wx.wxMessageBox(" Call YOUR Supervisor for HELP! ")

Edit the screen set and click on the top item in the tree.  Then click on the event icon in the properties.  It will let you edit the PLC script.

re: PLC Script
thanks again for the hint. 
i owe you and many others here a big 'Thank You'

Say . . .if someone was so dumb , that they saved a PLC script with a bug in it  (lets say an endless loop with a wxMessageBox command)
of course i  know the program would lock up , and the backups would not work for some reason.
how would they locate that file to destroy it , or edit it.

of course that person would have looked everywhere and opened everything with no luck  . .  .
would that dummy have any way to stop the PLC script ?

but you might also try a adding a     -e   to the end of the autoload  it goes into the edit mode first.

C:\Mach4Hobby1953\Mach4GUI.exe /p Mach4Mill -e

That is truly the definition of getting stuck between a rock and a hard place.  :)

Start Mach4GUI in edit mode.  Mach4GUI /p <ProfileName> /e

Replace ProfileName with the name of your profile.
