jQuery to show hide password characters in asp.net textbox on checkbox check uncheck

Description:  Here I have demonstrated the feature to show the password typed in the textbox so that user can verify the password entered while making login or getting registered on any website.

Implementation: Let’s create a sample page from demonstration purpose.

HTML Source Code
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head runat="server">
    <script src="http://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.11.3.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript">
        function ShowHidePassword() {
            var txt = $('#<%=txtPassword.ClientID%>');
            if (txt.prop("type") == "password") {
                txt.prop("type", "text");
                $("label[for='cbShowHidePassword']").text("Hide Password");
            else {
                txt.prop("type", "password");
                $("label[for='cbShowHidePassword']").text("Show Password");
    <form id="form1" runat="server">
            <fieldset style="height: 100px; width: 280px;">
                <legend>Show/Hide Password text in textbox</legend>
                        <td>User Name</td>
                            <asp:TextBox ID="txtUserName" runat="server"></asp:TextBox></td>
                            <asp:TextBox ID="txtPassword" autocomplete="off" TextMode="Password" runat="server"></asp:TextBox>

                            <asp:Button ID="btnLogin" runat="server" Text="Login" />
                            <input id="cbShowHidePassword" type="checkbox" onclick="ShowHidePassword();" />
                            <label class="form-control" for='cbShowHidePassword'>Show Password</label>
