autocomplete attribute | autocomplete property
AutoComplete is disabled.
AutoComplete is enabled. Any string other than off enables AutoComplete.
As of Internet Explorer 11, the autocomplete property is no longer supported for input type=password fields.
The AutoComplete feature is highlighted in the Using AutoComplete in HTML Forms overview.
When AutoComplete is enabled, suggestions are provided for the value of a text field. Suggested values are mapped values based on the name attribute or vCard schema specified by the vcard_name attribute.
If AutoComplete is disabled, values are not stored and suggested values are not presented.
Values in input type=password elements can be mapped for AutoComplete; however, the ability to store this information can be disabled in the browser, and the user is prompted for a confirmation before the value is stored.
Information provided by the AutoComplete feature is not exposed to the object model, and is not visible to a Web page until the user selects one of the suggestions as a value for the text field.
This attribute is not supported in HTML Applications (HTAs).
This example uses the autocomplete attribute to disable the AutoComplete feature.
