HTML | DOM Textarea autocomplete Property
  • Last Updated : 17 Dec, 2019

The textarea autocomplete property in HTML DOM is used to set or return the value of the autocomplete attribute of a textarea 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 based on which the user entered before.

Syntax:

  • It returns the textarea autocomplete property.
    TextareaObject.autocomplete
  • It is used to set the textarea autocomplete property.
    TextareaObject.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 URL input field. It does not automatically complete the values.

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