cs file

private void Image_Tapped(object sender, TappedRoutedEventArgs e)

BitmapImage bitcurrentimage = showimg.Source as BitmapImage;
//if (showimg.Source == new BitmapImage(new Uri("ms-appx:///Assets/show_pass.png", UriKind.RelativeOrAbsolute)))
if (bitcurrentimage.UriSource.AbsoluteUri == "ms-appx:///Assets/show_pass.png")
//passBox.PasswordRevealMode = PasswordRevealMode.Visible;
txtBoxPassw.Visibility = Visibility.Visible;
showPass.Text = "Hide Password";
//passBox.PasswordRevealMode = PasswordRevealMode.Hidden;
txtBoxPassw.Visibility = Visibility.Visible.Equals(false);
showPass.Text = "Show Password";



actually i want to put validation(if (Utility.isEmptyString(txtBoxPassw.Text)) on the string typed in passwordbox, but when i am trying it is giving error "'PasswordBox' does not contain a definition for 'Text' and no extension method 'Text' accepting a first argument of type 'PasswordBox' could be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)"

This is your last comment, and from this comment I assume that you accept the method to use the built-in control PasswordBox instead of creating your own one.

Then you can refer to PasswordBox class, unlike a TextBox or a TextBlock, PasswordBox does not have a property named "Text". I think what you need is the PasswordBox.Password property.

For example:

<PasswordBox x:Name="passwb" Height="30" IsPasswordRevealButtonEnabled="True" />
<Button Content="click" VerticalAlignment="Bottom" Click="Button_Click"  />

Code behind:

private void Button_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e)
    var pass = passwb.Password;

The pass here indicate the password currently held by the PasswordBox which named "passwb".
