|Disabling form auto-filling|
Is it possible to disable auto-filling forms by including some hints in the HTML? Can't find any standard way to do that...
Will having a unique for each session "action" attribute in the <FORM> element do the trick?
You can do it on a form-level or on individual input elements:
To block auto-fill for the whole form:
<form action="" [b]autocomplete="off"[/b]>
or for one element:
<input type="text" name="login" [b]autocomplete="off"[/b]>
autocomplete="off" attribute is supported in IE, Safari/Konqueror (I think) and Mozilla/Firefox, but not in Opera (a deliberate policy on their part). It does not, however, validate.
Thanx, that's what I was looking for.
