After launching the setting page for an item of type CAknPasswordSettingItem, changes to the password are not visible in the settings list until UpdateListBoxTextL() is explicitly called on the setting item.


After calling CAknSettingItemList::EditItemL() to edit a CAknPasswordSettingItem object, call CAknSettingItem::UpdateListBoxTextL() to make any changes visible in the setting list.

void CMySettingItemList::EditCurrentItemL()
// open the setting page for the current item
EditItemL( ListBox()->CurrentItemIndex(), ETrue );
// Force update on CAknPasswordSettingItem
if( ListBox()->CurrentItemIndex() == KPasswordItemIndex )

This workaround is also implemented in the example application "S60 Platform: Settings Screen Example"
