Hi,

If you don't want to use autocompleted you can use textfield instead of path field.

Pathfield internally uses autocompleted to create list if you want to make changes in OOTB functionality, overlay is the solution.

There is no property called autocomplete="false".

Hi Arun Patidar,

I know. But based on the requirement, that field's using to put an internal or an external link. So, cannot change to textfield.

Can you give me more detail (the syntax function) on the overlay solution?  it's rendering by coralui3 js. Thanks

Yes, you can put internal/external links in text field also if you don't want selection and autocompleted list.

Agree with Arun - In that reference doc - i am not seeing an auto complete field. Therefore - looks like there is no way using props in the dialog that you can turn this off.

You cannot use props on granite types that do not exist.
