[feature-12872]Password Field autocomplete


We have been running into issues with the browsers autocomplete in password input component. If you have saved username and password for a site, the browser will autocomplete the input field if there is e.g. input field with type=password present.

In HTML you can disable this with something like:

<input type="password" autocomplete="off">

Is there a way to do the same thing in Perspective?

Not yet, but it’s an active feature on our backlog. I’ve added this forum thread to our internal ticket, so we’ll notify you here once it’s been completed.

The next Nightly will contain a change to the Text Field, Text Area, and Password Field components to allow access to the autocomplete HTML attribute. Unfortunately with Password Fields, most- if not all modern browsers ignore the “off” setting for password fields. A setting of “new-password” might work, but it will be dependent on the browser.

Please see The HTML autocomplete attribute - HTML: HyperText Markup Language | MDN

update: Autocomplete had to be backed out because having a <form> element on the page caused regression- Perspective Pages reloading when Button components were clicked. Though a solution was found, we decided to play it safe and roll the autocomplete effort into a larger Perspective Forms effort.
