Accessing parameter for password_field

If I have a form in a view (below) shouldn't I be able to access the
password field in the corresponding controller with params
[:password] ? -RVince

<% title "Login" %>
<% form_for @associate_session do |f| %>
  <%= f.error_messages %>
  <p>
  <br/><br/>
    <%= f.label :username %><br />
    <%= f.text_field :username %>
  </p>
  <p>
    <%= f.label :password %><br />
    <%= f.password_field :password %>
  </p>
  <br />
  <%= f.check_box :remember_me %>
  <%= f.label :remember_me %><br />
  <br />
  <% session['fromlogin'] = 1 %>
  <p><%= f.submit "Submit" %></p>
<% end %>

no. it will be params[:something][:password]. Take a look at your
development log to see how parameters are being sent.
