Using SPAutocomplete with a custom web service

Dec 13, 2011 at 7:37 PM

Hello,

We developed a web service to provide autocomplete results to the Ajax Toolkit control "AutoCompleteExtender" (http://www.asp.net/ajaxLibrary/AjaxControlToolkitSampleSite/AutoComplete/AutoComplete.aspx) that we use on a .NET project. This web service queries a SQL database to provide the suggestions.

Is it possible to hook the SPAutocomplete to that web service instead of fetching the suggestions from another SharePoint list?

Thank you.

Why not just use jQueryUI's autocomplete function?
