AutoCompleteSaveForm method (external)
Stores the values and names of the named input:password and input:text elements in the specified form for autocompletion.
This method stores the name/value pairs only if Autocomplete windows are enable in Internet Explorer (Tools / Internet Options / Content / Autocomplete - Settings). If Autocomplete is enabled, the AutoCompleteSaveForm method stores the name/value pairs on the local machine of the user. The next time when the user starts to type in a named input:password or input:text field, the browser displays suggestions based on the values stored for the name of the field. The stored data is independent of the location of the document, only the values and names of the named elements are stored.
When the user submits a form, the values and names of the named input:password and input:text elements are stored for autocompletion similarly to the AutoCompleteSaveForm method, although it can be turned off by the autocomplete property. The AutoCompleteSaveForm can be used to save the name/value pairs without sending a form.
