Thanks for the reply,,, the reason I couldn't get it to work is that apparently Google Chrome is ignoring 

.autocomplete = 'off'

That code should work in other browsers.


A workaround that works, but affects performance, is to create an empty table to use as an AutoComplete lookup table.

autocomplete=”off” is not valid markup with XHTML Transitional, which is a common DOCTYPE.

I always have this code in web programming and it is working until now, you may try this and it might help.


if (document.getElementsByTagName) {

var inputElements = document.getElementsByTagName(“input”);

for (i=0; inputElements; i++) {

if (inputElements.className && (inputElements.className.indexOf(“disableAutoComplete”) != -1)) {

/* Turn autocomplete off  on form*/ 
document.getElementById("caspioform").setAttribute("autocomplete", "off"); 


/* Turn autocomplete off  on each input text element*/ 
if (document.getElementsByTagName("input").length > 0) {
  var inputElements = document.getElementsByTagName("input");
  for (i=0; i < inputElements.length ; i++) {
    if (inputElements[i].getAttribute("type") == "text") {
      var att = document.createAttribute("autocomplete");
      att.value = "off";
