Hello all ๐Ÿ‘‹ Apologies if this has been asked an answered. I couldn't find any conversations via search.
We'd like to disable autocomplete for an input field in our doc, but not sure how to enable in the schema. Example with html in vid below.

I think the only way to do this interesting enough is to create a custom field component using sanitys official component lib https://www.sanity.io/ui/docs/primitive/text-input in here you can set the change event to return nothing. should block autocomplete I think.

User @ Sanity support recommended this approach, seems to work as designed:
import { useEffect, useRef } from "react";
import { InputProps, isStringInputProps } from "sanity";
 * Disable autocomplete in all string inputs
 * If necessary, customize to target other form inputs
 * Used in `sanity.config.ts` as:
 * ```ts
 * form: {
 *   components: {
 *     input: FormInput
 *   }
 * }
export function FormInput(props: InputProps) {
* Pass a reference to the input
* @see
https://react.dev/learn/manipulating-the-dom-with-refs */
const ref = useRef<HTMLInputElement>(null);
props.elementProps.ref = ref;
useEffect(() => {
* After rendering, update the input's
attribute * NOTE: this assertion will match both
typed fields */
if (
&& ref.current.autocomplete != "off"
&& isStringInputProps(props)
) {
ref.current.autocomplete = "off"
}, [props, ref.current?.autocomplete])
return props.renderDefault(props);
