The DOM Input Text autocomplete Property in HTML DOM is used to set or return the value of the autocomplete attribute of an Input Text field. The autocomplete attribute is used to specify whether the autocomplete attribute has “on” or “off” value. When the autocomplete attribute is set to on the browser will automatically complete the values base on which the user entered before. 

Syntax: 

  • It returns the Input Text autocomplete property.
textObject.autocomplete
  • It is used to set the Input Text autocomplete property.
textObject.autocomplete = "on|off"

Property Values: It contains two values which are listed below:

  • on: It is the default value. It automatically completes the values.
  • off: It defines that the user should fill the values of the text input field. It does not automatically complete the values.

Return Value: It returns a string value which represents the state of autocomplete
