Description [src]

Prompts for password. Set the various properties on the prompt before calling this method to explain which password should be entered.

This method will block until the a response is returned from the prompter and will run a main loop similar to a gtk_dialog_run(). The application will remain responsive but care must be taken to handle reentrancy issues.

A password will be returned if the user enters a password successfully. The returned password is valid until the next time a method is called to display another prompt.

NULL will be returned if the user cancels or if an error occurs. Check the error argument to tell the difference.
