setting autocompolete to OFF

Hi, i use AW.UI.Input to generate an input box. I'd also like to be able to turn the autocomplete feature of this box off. If I call obj.setAttribute("autocomplete","off"), it is obj's outmost <SPAN> tag that gets the autocomplete attribute set, not the <INPUT> tag.

How can I do this properly?

I never heard about an attribute called autocomplete, what does this do?

it works in FF also. In fact, when autocomplete is on in FF (which it is by default), I get a lot of nasty exceptions when working with selectins and text ranges.

If you want to turn it off you have to access the box/text part of the Input and turn it off there.

var obj = new AW.UI.Input;
obj.getContent('box/text').setAttribute('autocomplete', 'off');

FireFox does support it but in a different way then IE does:

Yep, that's what I ended up doing. But thanks for the FF reference. It looks very interesting. I'm implementing a Google Suggest type input box and this will come very handy.
