Subject Re: How to set "autocomplete" attribute in <html:form>
Date Wed, 22 Jun 2005 13:02:27 GMT
Néstor,

Wow, I didn't know that existed, thanks for the link. Since it's not a
standard Struts attribute, here's a couple of ideas:
- creating a custom tag library that extends the standard HTML tag lib
and tld, but this seems like overkill.
- If you want to turn autocomplete on for every text field, you could
create a filter that added the attribute for every page that's sent
too, but it sounds like a lot of work and there could be performance
problems.
- You could create a javascript function that would go through a
page's DOM, getting all elements of type text and loop through them,
enabling this attribute for each one. You could then call this
function in the <body onload=> attribute.

These are just off the top of my head, there's probably better and/or
more efficient ways of doing this.
