Turning Off AutoComplete

Hello,

does anybody know how to turn off the autocomplete feature for a certain
text field?

I am aware of the "autocomple te" attribute, but I have seen other
implementions achieving it without any such attribute and am wondering
whether there is another way to do it .... like via CSS or a naming
convention or .......

Thanks,
Alex

Isn't this the same discussion that is running since 24 hours in alt.html?

Like others will say, autocomplete is a feature of the user's browser,
not a feature of your site.

Yes, but as was said, AutoComplete is a function of the user's
browser, not your site.

These are no answers to my questions.

Anyway, I asked for an answer and not for a senseless discussion. If you
have an answer to my question, then please let me know. Otherwise, whats
the purpose?

People trying to think with you to solve your problem is a senseless
discussion? How about saying that to the person who just posted a new
message to your thread in alt.html? I'd bet he would stop thinking for
you.

If all you want is an answer to the question, this should suffice:

Yes.

I suspect that isn't the response you want, so to second guess you:

Yes, the browser programmers.

Does having an answer to your question, rather than a discussion, help
you at all? No, I didn't think so.

To be slightly more helpful, you certainly can't do it with html or css.
As to whether some operating system component offers a suitable api, I
have no idea & that wouldn't be a matter for ciwa* in any case.

We have a web application developed using IBuySpy. In older versions, Autocomplete on all web forms works. In our latest version, it stopped working on all clients. I have gone through all the groups and tried a bunch of things. Two main areas I keep seeing are, 1. Browser Settings not set correctly. 2. Ability to turn off Autocomplete for a control and a form.
