Search Auto complete box

Hi,

We are planning to improve the present search (Product DB search). Is there
any way on ASP script to make an auto complete text box, loaded with the
product names (like in google suggest). I hear AJAX, can that be used with
ASP scripts?

This is more of a client-side scripting question, since ASP (server-side
technology) does not know what a textbox is. Try
microsoft.public.scripting.jscript
with the product names (like in google suggest). I hear AJAX, can
that be used with ASP scripts?

AJAX is for ASP.Net. It uses the XMLHTTPRequest object, which can be used in
html pages. Do a google groups search for that term, using the advanced
search features to limit your search to .scripting.jscript.

Yes, I find AJAX is not for ASP and supported only in .NET

Many thanks

Huh?

You can absolutely use remote scripting in ASP. I do it all the time.

See google for

XMLHttpRequest

Absolutely.

All "ajax" is is remote scripting. See
