autocomplete textbox like google

P: n/a
nil
Hello all,

It's urgent...

i want to add autocomplete textbox facility in my application like
google. as you type it suggests option to the user..i want the same
kind of facility...i know i can do only with ajax(xml and javascript)
but i want to fetch possible values from database and want to show as
the user types in text box.

i've searched on the net and i found some articles but i don't want to
use any dll file they provide but i want to use simple code and
javascript...if anyone has any idea then please provide me code
snippet or provide some link that do not contains the component
like .dll file and only simple code..
the help will be appreciated...

Thanks & Regards,
Nil

Look into DojoToolkit (www.dojotoolkit.org).
Look at the widget "ComboBox". It's a good one... can be used with anything
on the server side, including ASP.Net :)

hello
yes but in that they are using dll file that i can't use in my
application as my company is not allowing me to use dll file so i
prefer only code and javascript and i've one javascript but problem is
that it uses static array and i want to fetch data from db and then
want to assign to the array..with static array it works fine...here's
my code

this all code works fine...but i want to to fetch data and want to
assign to javascript array so i can display them when user type in
textbox...do you know how to pass array from code behind to javascript
and assign it to javascript array.

I AM USING VB.NET2003 OR FRAMEWORK 1.1...

I think it's not possible to pass array to javascript so i tried to
fetch value from db and assign it to string like

dim str as string
dim i as integer

for i=0 to ds.tables("txt").rows.count-1 step 1
str += " ' " & ds.tables("txt").rows(i).item("vname")
& " ' "
next 1

but how can i split this thing in javascript and assign it to
array....

you can see the above article at http://www.codeproject.com/jscript/jsactb.asp

if you can help me then please...and if possible then provide some
code snippet if possible....my mail id is ni*********@yahoo.com and my
gmail id is ni**************@gmail.com

Thanks & Regards,
Nil
