UI Component Proposal

Formal proposal -Add UI component to use an icon for show/hide

My pitch for a show/hide toggle functionality to display or not-display field content. Also known as password "masking," the functionality replaces characters with ••••. This would replace a similar function which uses text for Show/Hide. The problem with text for show/hide is that, when it is translated to other languages; while, in English the words are only a few characters long, in other languages (ex: German), it can be quite lengthy.

By adding to the PayPal corporate pattern library, I helped improve overall usability and design at the company.
