Helping people with computers... one answer at a time.

  • Why does AutoComplete work in some forms and not others?
  • Can I extract more information from a DLL to see what it's about?

Why does AutoComplete work in some forms and not others? Probably because the author of the web page disabled it for one form and not the other. It's possible to include AUTOCOMPLETE = "off" in the FORM definition to do that. MSDN has a good overview of autocomplete in their online library.

Can I extract more information from a DLL to see what it's about? In What's this DLL I discussed several techniques to explore what application a DLL might be part of. An additional trick I did not mention there is to look for all the text strings in the DLL using a utility such as strings from SysInternals. Be sure to run it twice: once for ASCII strings, and again for UNICODE strings.

Hi Leo!
As I research or surf on the web, I often get this box that asks for a user name and password.
This box always looks the same. I've tried some passwords but it doesn't recognize me or won't let me in.
I've looked around to see if I could find an answer to this, but I have not come across it.
Do you think you could help me? Or tell me what or where to look?
I'd really apprieciate it.
Thanks

Those are restricted access sites. If you are supposed to be able to see the pages, you'll need to get a username and password from each site owner. In general I wouldn't expect them to respond since these sites are usually not meant for the general public.

Just a note to say, thank you Leo!

That of course makes sense, I was gettin' alittle worried when I started add my personal numbers too.

I thought it had something to do with my PC.
