Hi there,

I have a question around writing a login script. I hope someone can tell me what I should be 'googling' or point me in the direction of a solution.

I would like the textboxes in my login form NOT to display any previous logged in details, i.e. username and password. I realise this can be turned off at the browser level, however the system I am building will be for multiple users on multiple machines, so I would like to remove the capability at the server side.

An example of what I'm talking about would be any one of a number of major Bank login screens. No matter what your browser settings are - they seems to have been able to prevent the textboxes or forms remembering previously entered details.

Many thanks for any help!

Alk...

Alk3m1st,

The "remembering" feature you are referring to is called autocomplete. It can be turned off in the html code of your form(s) as follows:

For a single form field:
Code:
<form>
<input type="text" name="field1" AUTOCOMPLETE="OFF">
</form>

For multiple form fields:
Code:
<form AUTOCOMPLETE="OFF">
<input type="text" name="field1">
<input type="text" name="field2">
<input type="text" name="field3">
</form>
