public unowned string password_run (Cancellable? cancellable = null) throws Error

Set the various properties on the prompt before calling this method to explain which password should be entered.

This method will block until the a response is returned from the prompter and will run a main loop similar to a gtk_dialog_run. The application will remain responsive but care must be taken to handle reentrancy issues.

null will be returned if the user cancels or if an error occurs. Check the throws argument to tell the difference.
