This example uses the VCARD_NAME attribute to map the value of the text field to the e-mail address specified by the Profile Assistant.

TYPE = text NAME= "CustomerEmail"
VCARD_NAME = "vCard.Email"



A vCard is a standards-based way to refer to common personal information about a user. When a VCARD_NAME attribute is specified, the AutoComplete box is populated with mapped values from the Profile Assistant and any other submitted values stored for that domain. For example, if a user enters an e-mail address into a text field that exposes a VCARD_NAME attribute set to vCard.Email, AutoComplete suggests any e-mail information provided in the Profile Assistant. If the user submits a different e-mail address, the new information becomes available on that domain for other text fields with the same VCARD_NAME value. If the VCARD_NAME attribute is not specified, the name of the text field is used to map the submitted information. However, information from the Profile Assistant is not used. You can disable the AutoComplete feature by specifying no to the AUTOCOMPLETE attribute. Even though you can map PASSWORD values for AutoComplete, the ability to store this information can be disabled. When this occurs, the user is prompted for a confirmation before storing the value. The object model and the document do not have access to information provided by the AutoComplete feature until the user selects one of the suggestions for the text field. This property is not supported in HTML Applications.
