PasswordBox with Number only keyboard
it would be helpfull to have a passwordBox like control which supports Number only keyboard. Numeric only passwords makes more sense for Smartphone world as its fast, convenient and easy to type.
Thank you for the suggestion. We are not adding this capability in the 8.0 release, but know that it is high on the consideration list for future Windows Phone releases.
Keep those suggestions and votes coming!

This is pretty common request, for example for PIN enterance
Here's a posible workaround in the meantime: http://www.developer.nokia.com/Community/Wiki/index.php?title=How_to_create_a_PasswordBox_with_numeric_Input_Scope_on_Windows_Phone&diff=188042&oldid=188039
Even better MSFT, please update the PasswordBox control to inherit from TextBox so we can use InputScope on a PasswordBox. Changing the keyboard for this control is a must as it can be used for entering any private info, not just a password, and we need to give users the easiest input method possible. Having to make our own custom TextBox kid of defeats the purpose of build in controls.
