When I develope a web application, in a html page all the text boxes are having old values whatever i entered when I double click. That is history is maintained.. I see some of the sited dont have history of values in text boxes when double click inside the text box or auto populating as we type values. How to restrict this? Is this some browser or server setting? Thanks in advance.
Thanks Eric. Even I thought browser should control that.. But I don't see values in text boxes when I access some particular sites.. I have autocomplete on in my browser setting. In that case, that should affect all websites. right? how come some websites are not having that feature when I access in my same machine? Thanks for your time.

I have no idea why, could be the foms are not coded correctly, tags are not right, the browser developers hate the site, etc. Maybe security levels, certificates, etc. I have no clue, just know I like the feature. LOL

ok. Thanks.. Definitely it may not be the issue with form not being coded properly. Same code when it deployed and access in my machine autocomplete runs well. When I deployed the same code/ear in our common organization webserver and access the application that feature doesnt work. It is the same browser & browser settings.. Something is turning that feature off. As you said may be that has to do some thing with certificate,etc.. I like that feature to be on as I dont have to rememebr lot of values which I need during my testing!
