View Full Version : Stop Form Field History

Is there a way to stop a Text Box from showing the form field history drop down box?

I figured it might be a javascript trick.

Any help would be appreciated.

It could the AutoComplete settings of your browser (if IE).

You can configure AutoComplete to save and suggest only the information you want. You can choose whether to use AutoComplete for Web addresses, forms, and passwords, or not use it all. You can also clear the history for any of these.

In Internet Explorer, on the Tools menu, click Internet Options.
Click the Content tab.
Under Personal information, click AutoComplete.
Select the check boxes for the AutoComplete options you want to use.

Thanks for the info.

I was actually looking for a way to do this on a web page so that the drop down box doesn't show up on teh customers browser. I thought maybe Javascript could do this?

I just found it.

<form id="formSignOn" autocomplete="off" method="post" runat="server">

Sorry, I thought you meant via your browser :)

But what you have posted should do it

I have been wondering how to make the history of the form fields showing up when customers
use the form for inputs.
