    I have a form that redirects to another payment system and I have the form set to encrypt the data once the submit button is clicked.  One of our people who keeps a look out for security issues said he found that the text changing to the encrypted text in the form, may look like someone is trying to change the information.  I informed him that it is making the data more secure, but that I would ask is there a way to hide the fields changing when the submit for is clicked or do it behind the scenes?

    Hello, I'm assuming you're referring to the behavior of the form fields where it changes the actual value and replaces them with the encrypted form data right at the moment a user hits the Submit button. To better confirm, here's a short clip:

    If so, I'm afraid there's no way to hide the fields value upon form submission.

    If it's something that is really important for the guy in charge of security, the only workaround I can think of is for you to use your form's Full Source Code then have your designer/developer craft their own logic on hiding the fields programmatically using JS/CSS.
