Strong password validator?

While working on a sign up form I would like to add a "strong password" validator to my password field. In addition it would be nice to show the strength of the password you currently have typed in visually.

I see this as a typical general component that you normally would like to apply to signup forms to make your users choose better passwords and even reject bad password from being registered in the first place. Any opinions or code samples would be really helpful :)

You may give a try to create one? ;)

Hi Knut,

i recently saw that there are some jQuery plugins doing exactly this. Maybe you find something useful:


Thanks Mike, I’ll give it a try :)
