Using ECML 1.1 to Make Website Forms Compatible with Google Toolbar AutoFill and WAND

HTML5, CSS3 and JavaScript

The Fine Art of Web Development by Martin Ivanov

Recently, I was asked how it is possible to make website forms compatible with Google Toolbar Auto Fill, Wand and other auto fill or wallet software. The answer is quite obvious – the form fields “name” attributes should comply to certain rules and naming conventions, but the problem is that it is hard to find information about that specification.

For those who are interested in making their website forms compatible with third party auto fill and wallet software, here is a link to ECML 1.1 (Electronic Commerce Modeling Language) – Field Specifications for E-Commerce. Optionally, you can download the specification from this link.
