browser's textbox auto complete not working

TS
I am using IE 7. I have a website running on my local machine (localhost)
and auto complete doesnt work for any of the textboxes, but going to web
sites on the internet does support this so i know the browser has this
config turned on.

any ideas why it doesnt work on my local web application (.net 2)?

thanks

Hi TS,

As for IE AutoComplete settings, you can check through the following
configuration to see whether all those corresponding cache options as been
selected.

Tools-->options-->Content tab --"AutoComplete settings"

Also, you can open "tools-options--general tab---browser history" and use
the "Delete" button to try deleting all those cached data in IE to see
whether this will help.

So far based on myresearch, only find the following reference about IE
autocomplete issue:

#Internet Explorer 7 AutoComplete
http://www.maximumpcguides.com/inter...-autocomplete/

#The AutoComplete feature does not work in Windows Internet Explorer 7
http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx/kb/942090

BTW, since the problem occurs for your local asp.net web application, does
it occurs for every page or if you create a new web application hosted on
local host?

Sincerely,

Steven Cheng

New web applications dont seem to have the issue, looks like its just this
existing application.

My application uses custom server controls but i have created this new
application and have referenced the project containing custom server
controls and i used the textbox control on the page and it has auto complete
so that proves its not the custom server controls

Thanks for your reply TS,

So the problem has been confirmed to be web application specific. Is the
web application hosted in IIS or just a simply directory run by VS test
server? If it is not necessary to keep the original folder name or place, I
suggest you try creating a new web site and move the original page or other
files into the new website application to see whether the problem will go
away.
