Trouble using AutoCompleteExt ender

hi

VS2008

I have trouble getting the AutoCompleteExt ender to work. I've seen the video
at
http://www.asp.net:80/learn/ajax-videos/video-122.aspx but don't understand
what I do wrong. I've even downloaded the source code next to the video and
cannot see what I do wrong here. When I run the .aspx webpage, I start
typing in the textbox but isn't called after I've typed in 3 chars. I know
that method isn't called as I've set a breakpoint in the start of the
GetCompletionLi st method.

In my datasource there is a name with the pattern "uuu", so if I start
typing "uuu" atleast that name shold be displayed...

*** markup in my .aspx webpage *************** **
<asp:ScriptMana ger ID="ScriptManag er1" runat="server">
<Services>
<asp:ServiceRef erence Path="~/Services/AutoCompleteNam e.asmx" />
</Services>
</asp:ScriptManag er>

Name: <asp:TextBox ID="txtName" runat="server"> </asp:TextBox>
<ajaxToolkit:Au toCompleteExten der ID="AutoComplet eExtender1"
runat="server"
TargetControlID ="txtName"
ServicePath="~/Services/AutoCompleteNam e.asmx"
ServiceMethod=" GetCompletionLi st"
MinimumPrefixLe ngth="3" CompletionSetCo unt="10" >
</ajaxToolkit:Aut oCompleteExtend er>

******* *************** *

[WebService(Name space = "http://tempuri.org/")]
[WebServiceBindi ng(ConformsTo = WsiProfiles.Bas icProfile1_1)]
// To allow this Web Service to be called from script, using ASP.NET AJAX,
uncomment the following line.
// [System.Web.Scri pt.Services.Scr iptService]
public class AutoCompleteNam e : System.Web.Serv ices.WebService {

public AutoCompleteNam e () {

//Uncomment the following line if using designed components
//InitializeCompo nent();
}

[WebMethod]
public string[] GetCompletionLi st(string prefixText, int count)
{
List<NamenameCo llection = Name.GetNames(p refixText, count);
List<stringname s = null;
foreach (Name name in nameCollection)
{
names.Add(name. surename);
}
return names.ToArray() ;
}

}

could it be caused by this: ServicePath="~/Services/AutoCompleteNam e.asmx"
in the video source code it is ServicePath="Au toCompleteName. asmx", but I've
created a subfolder for my .asmx files just in case my project will have
more .asmx files. I thought it was a nice way of keeping the project tidy,
not having everything in the root folder.....

any suggestions?

Don't you need to uncomment the ScriptService attribute?
