How to keep data entered on Forms

  baldyx 17:54 11 Jan 2007

Please someone tell me how I can keep the data entered on form in web can be kept to avoid re-entering them,e.g. some competition forms where the name & address details have to be entered.

download the browser Opera , it can store details such as name address etc so you can enter them at the clickk of a mouse , it doesnt store passwords etc so yuor safe.

There are plenty of other tools available for IE just google it

I have installed RoboForm and used it o.k. for the purpose btu it is on a 30 day trial after that you have to buy or unistall .

I will also try 'Opera' .

But I thought there was an option in Tools>Internet Options in th IE browser (ver 7 currently used on my pc) which used to keep the entered data on a WEB form. May be it has been removed form this version of IE7.

Tools /Internet Options/Content/Autocomplete settings

Have you had a look at the autofill facility Google toolbar:
click here
I only use it for my email address but if memory serves me it can used to enter your complete address etc. at the click of a mouse.
Don't know if it is compatible with IE7 as I am still on IE6.

Skidzy - the 'inline autocomplete ' option was already checked when I installed IE7 sometime ago ,so it does not work for this purpose.

Will try Cocteau48's suggestion.

Google toolbar autofill works with IE7 - make sure you have the latest version though.

the Google toolbar autofill works but it does not have field for 'Date Of Birth'.
Is it possible to include it or any other extra fields ?
