    hi,

    encase anyone else ever need an answer to only enable form input if password strength if met

    Index

        <script src="js/complexityCheck.js?version=1.0.05"></script>
        <script src="_content/Smart.Blazor/js/smart.blazor.js"></script>
        <script src="_content/Smart.Blazor/js/smart.elements.js"></script>
    

    the input password feild

    <label for="password">Password</label>
    <template id="tooltip-password">
    	<span style="font-weight:bold; color:red">{{value}}</span>
    </template>
    <PasswordTextBox Required Class="form-control" id="password" TooltipTemplate="tooltip-password" Placeholder="Enter password" @bind-Value="user.Password" ShowPasswordIcon ShowPasswordStrength Name="password"></PasswordTextBox>
    <ValidationMessage For="@(() => user.Password)" />
    

    the form submit button

    <button type="submit" id="submit" disabled="@(!isComplexityValid)" class="btn btn-primary">
    	<span class="sr-only">Register</span>
    </button>
    

    using customStrength

    script: js/complexityCheck.js

    const symbols = /['<>@!#$%^&*()_+\]\[\{}?:;|'"\\,.\/~`\-=']+/;
    const numerical = /.*[0-9].*/;
    const upperCase = /.*[A-Z].*/;
    const lowerCase = /.*[a-z].*/;
    
    (function (global) {
        global.customStrength = function (dotNetObject) {
            setTimeout(function () {
                document.querySelector("smart-password-text-box").passwordStrength = function (password, allowedSymbols) {
                    const passwordLength = password.length;
                    let message = null;
                    // debugger;
                    if (passwordLength < 3) {
                        message = 'short';
                    } else if (passwordLength < 7) {
                        message = 'weak';
                    } else if (!new RegExp(symbols).exec(password)) {
                        message = 'complexity week - missing at least 1 symbol, ' + allowedSymbols;
                    } else if (!new RegExp(numerical).exec(password)) {
                        message = 'complexity week - missing at least 1 numerical value, 0 - 9';
                    } else if (!new RegExp(upperCase).exec(password)) {
                        message = 'complexity week - missing at least 1 upper case character;
                    } else if (!new RegExp(lowerCase).exec(password)) {
                        message = 'complexity week - missing at least 1 lower case character';
                    }
                    if (message) {
                        dotNetObject.invokeMethodAsync('CallbackComplexityCheck', false)
                        return message;
                    }
                    dotNetObject.invokeMethodAsync('CallbackComplexityCheck', true)
                    return 'strong';
                }
            }, 0);
            return true;
        }
    })(window);
    
     protected override async Task OnAfterRenderAsync(bool firstRender)
        {
            if (firstRender)
            {
                await JSRuntime.InvokeAsync<bool>("customStrength", DotNetObjectReference.Create(this));
            }
            await base.OnAfterRenderAsync(firstRender);
        }
    

    the @code block

        private bool isComplexityValid = false;
        [JSInvokable, EditorBrowsable(EditorBrowsableState.Never)]
        public void CallbackComplexityCheck(bool valid)
        {
            if (isComplexityValid != valid)
            {
                isComplexityValid = valid;
                StateHasChanged();
            }
        }
    

    the css to change input fields outline colour based on strength

    smart-password-text-box {
        background-clip: content-box;
        box-sizing: border-box;
    }
    
    smart-password-text-box[show-password-strength] .smart-password-short  {
          border: red solid 3px;
    }
    
    smart-password-text-box[show-password-strength] .smart-password-weak  {
        border: orange solid 3px;
    }
    
    smart-password-text-box[show-password-strength] .smart-password-far  {
        border: yellow solid 3px;
    }
    
    smart-password-text-box[show-password-strength] .smart-password-good {
        border: deepskyblue solid 3px;
    }
    
    smart-password-text-box[show-password-strength] .smart-password-strong  {
        border: green solid 3px;
    }
    
    smart-password-text-box smart-tooltip .smart-tooltip-content {
        border-radius: 3px;
    }
    

    I hope this helps someone one day the effort of working this out themselves like I had to

    seams i got the cass wrong to make that work poperly –

    smart-password-text-box {
        background-clip: content-box;
        box-sizing: border-box;
    }
    
        smart-password-text-box[show-password-strength] {
            border: red solid 3px;
        }
    
            smart-password-text-box[show-password-strength] .smart-password-short {
                border: red solid 3px;
            }
    
            smart-password-text-box[show-password-strength] .smart-password-weak {
                border: #C27BA0 solid 3px;
            }
    
            smart-password-text-box[show-password-strength] .smart-password-far {
                border: orange solid 3px;
            }
    
            smart-password-text-box[show-password-strength] .smart-password-better {
                border: yellow solid 3px;
            }
    
            smart-password-text-box[show-password-strength] .smart-password-good {
                border: deepskyblue solid 3px;
            }
    
            smart-password-text-box[show-password-strength] .smart-password-strong {
                border: green solid 3px;
            }
    
        smart-password-text-box smart-tooltip .smart-tooltip-content {
            border-radius: 3px;
        }
    

    then the js file needs to be

    (function (global) {
        global.customStrength = function (dotNetObject) {
            let allowedSymbols = '<>@!#$%^&*()_+[]{}?:;|\'"\\,./~`-=';
            const passwordTextBox = document.querySelector("smart-password-text-box").messages = {
                'en': {
                    'passwordStrength': 'Password strength',
                    'short': 'Short',
                    'weak': 'complexity Week - missing art least 1 symbol, ' + allowedSymbols,
                    'far': 'complexity Fair - missing at least 1 numerical value, 0 - 9',
                    'better': 'complexity Better - missing at least 1 upper case characture, A- Z',
                    'good': 'complexity Good - missing at least 1 lower case characture, a - z',
                    'strong': 'Strong =)',
                    'showPassword': 'Show password'
                }
            };
            setTimeout(function () {
                passwordTextBox.passwordStrength = function (password, allowedSymbols) {
                    const passwordLength = password.length;
                    let message = null;
                    // debugger;
                    if (passwordLength < 7) {
                        message = 'short';
                    } else if (!new RegExp(symbols).exec(password)) {
                        message = 'weak';
                    } else if (!new RegExp(numerical).exec(password)) {
                        message = 'far';
                    } else if (!new RegExp(upperCase).exec(password)) {
                        message = 'better';
                    } else if (!new RegExp(lowerCase).exec(password)) {
                        message = 'good';
                    }
                    if (message) {
                        dotNetObject.invokeMethodAsync('CallbackComplexityCheck', false)
                        return message;
                    }
                    dotNetObject.invokeMethodAsync('CallbackComplexityCheck', true)
                    return 'strong';
                }
            }, 0);
            return true;
        }
    })(window);
    

    This will allow one to customise the message in the tooltip template whilst still applying styling the the input

    I thought I would update this with a complete solution with a few weeks for a better UXI experience.

    This ensures the password field is not red on page load, then if the user types in it and then deletes its contents it will then appear red to indicate that it is required the same behaviour as other required fields, also fix the styling so that the password *’s are indented and appears the same as the default blazor form-control class, also adds the field highlight when password field is selected. The submit button is only enabled when the complexity is ‘Strong’, and when the submit is clicked it displays a spinning bootstrap icon on the submit button and disables it to prevent re-clicking. Assumes the submit action will call a service that returns a result object or response, this can then be used to display the smart blazor badge to give feedback on the Ui to the user.

    I hope this helps someone one day

    complexityCheck.js

    const symbols = /['<>@!#$%^&*()_+\]\[\{}?:;|'"\\,.\/~`\-=']+/;
    const numerical = /.*[0-9].*/;
    const upperCase = /.*[A-Z].*/;
    const lowerCase = /.*[a-z].*/;
    
    (function (global) {

            // Set the border to red if the field is cleared and outline green if the field has a value
