How can I force a password prompt in Workflow?

I have a form on which I have a button to approve a document in a Workflow context. To meet some demands regarding security in the approval process, the user shall be forced to type in her password and the password should be validated. I have not found appropriate functions to help me accomplish this.

The button is programmed in LotusScript. I have tried to make a call to ToolsUserLogoff but notes doesn't care -- I open the database, save a document etc. and I'm still not prompted for a password. Can you help?

The following is the code bit that tries to prompt for a password without any effect:

'check if possible prompt is
 wanted - look in config. 

 logoff = Evaluate("@Command

The @Command doesn't work in an Evaluate call. You may have to code your action button in macro language, as follows:
@Command([ToolsUserLogoff]); @Command([ToolsRunMacro]; " your agent")
and create a run-once LotusScript agent that the action calls, containing the rest of your code.
