disable autofill in WebControls.TextBox control

P: n/a
I'm retouching our corporate web site that, among other things, allows
customers to log in and pay their invoices online. I noticed that on the
checkout page, the credit card number textbox autofills with past entries for
that textbox. My development workstation has the Google Toolbar installed;
I'm not sure whether the autofill functionality is native to the browser or
coming from the Google Toolbar.

In either case, is there any way of disabling autofill for a particular
textbox regardless of browser or third-party toolbar? If I can't disable
autofill for an individual control, can I disable it for the whole page?

Thanks,

Andre Ranieri

Andre,

I believe that the behaviour you describe is due to the google toolbar. I
don't use it's autofill feature and don't experience the behaviour on my
company's sites (or any others). I don't know of any way to disable this
behaviour. It would be up to each individual user.

Yes, I think you are correct. The autofill/Complete feature must be under
the control of the user ( or administrator ) as far as I am aware it is not
possible to prevent or enable this using Meta tags for example as this would
constitute a security breach.

I may be wrong, but I doubt it.
