Random password feature on Mac not working

On forgot password page of security assist, everything works except for random password generator. I follow the directions below and the random password is being thrown on the page as a line of text and viewable on the forgot password form. What am I doing wrong?

How do I make use of the random password feature of SecurityAssist?
From the bindings tab, choose Add > SecurityAssist > Random Password. This will add the binding to your list of available bindings. To apply this binding, drag and drop it onto your page. Once dragged to your page, the configuration screen will appear where you can set the parameters for the random password that is created.

you are adding the binding to the page, this is why it is showing on the page. adding the binding to the page tells it to show the random password where you place the bindings.

What is it you are trying to do with the random password?

I am trying to have the forgot password page change the password to something random and then email that to the user. I can not find instructions for the latest version and for mac.

after you add the random password binding, add a set session value behavior. from the Server behaviors panel, click the plus button and select WebAssist -> Cookies -> Set Session Value.

Set the trigger to Before page load, set the name to RandomPassword for the value, click the lightning bolt icon and select the random password binding.

no, you will need to add an update record behavior to the page, on the server behaviors panel, click the plus button and select webassist -> data Assist -> Update -> update single record.

for the key column, select the email address column and for the key value, click the lightning bolt and select the email address form element.

on the bindings tab, bind the password field to the random password session variable.

Now you will need to send the email.

Go to Webassist -> Create Email message.

For the To address, click the lightning bolt and select the Email address form element.

for the body of the email, uncheck the option to create a file for the email and click the DW edit icon, design your message using dreamweaver design view, add the Random Password session binding to the email message to show the new random password.
