Where is IE's persistent storage and how do I delete the storage from my form.

I have

   // Get the version from the persisten storage on the client pc (cookie like)
   persistVersion = formObject.getAttribute("version");

and I want to DELETE this if the version I have is too old.

I only found save and load. No delete.

A good example or a link to a good example is enough answer

IE supports what is called persistent forms.


and I can only seem to load and save, not delete.
Perhaps it is like cookies, to delete one sets something empty

i think you have answered this your self.

I was at the msdn site, and could not find anything about how delete a persitant form.

I would say you were right to delete it is to set it to empty field.

No points for me, i am not 100% sure, but i have read thru the msdn crap that they provide and cannot find anything. I will continue to look
