Is there a possibility to disable the autocomplete of Sitecore WFFM text box. We are using Sitecore 8.1

  • You mean Autofill? from browser cache? – Ahmed Okour Oct 2 '18 at 16:55

You may need to create custom SingleLineText field for this:

public class SingleLineText : Sitecore.Form.Web.UI.Controls.SingleLineText
    [VisualCategory("Custom Properties")]
    [VisualProperty("Autofill", 2)]
    public string Autofill { get; set; }

    protected override void OnInit(EventArgs e)
        // Set placeholder text, if present
        if (!string.IsNullOrEmpty(Autofill))
            textbox.Attributes["autocomplete"] = Autofill;


Then, You need to create field definition item under, Name it "Extended SingleLineText":

/sitecore/system/Modules/Web Forms for Marketers/Settings/Field Types/Custom/

Set the assembly name and class name to use the class you created for this field, Then you can use your new field which by default will disable autocomplete/autofill for you, since the autocomplete is set to "off".
