How can I add autocomplete="off" to a form field?

$fields->push( new TextField( "Your Phone") );

Afaik the only way to do that is extending the (Text)Field. Something like

class MyAutocompleteTextField extends TextField {

   function Field() {
      $attributes = array(
         'type' => 'text',
         'class' => 'text' . ($this->extraClass() ? $this->extraClass() : ''),
         'id' => $this->id(),
         'name' => $this->Name(),
         'value' => $this->Value(),
         'tabindex' => $this->getTabIndex(),
         'maxlength' => ($this->maxLength) ? $this->maxLength : null,
         'size' => ($this->maxLength) ? min( $this->maxLength, 30 ) : null
      );

      if($this->disabled) $attributes['disabled'] = 'disabled';

      // add the new attribute here: <==========
      $attributes['autocomplete'] = 'off';

      return $this->createTag('input', $attributes);
   }

}

Then

$fields->push( new MyAutocompleteTextField( "Your Phone") );

On a similar topic, what's the best way to add autocomplete = "off" to the password field on the Login page?

Or all password fields for that matter.

I don't want to hack the core.

This is how I've done it, not the greatest but works...

_config.php

Object::useCustomClass('MemberLoginForm','CustomLoginForm');

CustomLoginForm.php

class CustomLoginForm extends MemberLoginForm {
   public function __construct($controller, $name, $fields = null, $actions = null, $checkCurrentUser = true) {
      parent::__construct($controller, $name, $fields, $actions);
      Requirements::customScript(<<<JS
         jQuery(document).ready(function(){
            jQuery('#CustomLoginForm_LoginForm_Password').attr('autocomplete','off');
         });
JS
);
   }
}
