Make the AutoCompleteExtender more like the Netflix search textbox

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 23, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net

I am using the autocompleteextender control in a project I am working on for a client, but I would like to be able to match words in the middle of the data I am searching. Controls such as the search textbox on sites like Netflix do this. For example, if I go to Netflix and search for 'wolfman' I get results like:

The Wolfman

The Real Wolfman

House of the Wolfman

With the extender I would only get results beginning with 'wolfman'. If my stored procedure in my webservice is written to do search the text as I want, nothing shows in the extender (I'm guessing because so many top results don't begin with the entered text). Is there a way to get the autocompleteextender to behave more like this?

Passing Textbox Value to ContextKey in AutoCompleteExtender



I'm trying to use the contextKey in the AJAX AutoComplete tool but there is a problem with regards to passing the contextKey value to the method located in the web service file.

Let me describe how my web form is organised.

There are two textboxes. One of them has the AutoComplete tool. The user enters a word in Textbox1 (which does not have the AutoComplete tool). Afterwards, when he clicks in TextBox2 (which has the AutoComplete tool) and starts to type, the AutoComplete tool will show him the close matches. Now, the items in the AutoComplete menu are retrieved from a SQL database. The Select command (of the AutoComplete which is in the web service file) returns values based on the the value of TextBox1 in the main forum.

This is the client-code of AutoComplete 1:

<cc1:AutoCompleteExtender ID="AutoCompleteExtender1" 

gridview filtering using a codebehind (textbox + search button)

i am trying to replicate the following sequence: input text into text box > press search button > search a database using LIKE operator > display using a gridview or listview. this sequence is fairly easy to do using the drag and drop then sqldatasource options, but i am trying to do the same result using a codebehind.  here is my code:   ____________________________________________________________________________________________________________ SqlConnection myConn; myConn = new SqlConnection(@"Data Source=.\SQLEXPRESS; AttachDbFilename=|DataDirectory|\projectDB.mdf; Integrated Security=True;User Instance=True"); myConn.Open(); string strSQL; strSQL = "SELECT * FROM Message";       //strSQL = "SELECT * FROM Message WHERE Message LIKE '" + txtSearch.Text + "'"; SqlDataAdapter da = new SqlDataAdapter(strSQL, myConn); DataSet ds = new DataSet(); da.Fill(ds, "Message"); GridView1.DataSource = ds; GridView1.DataBind(); myConn.Close(); _____________________________________________________________________________________________________________  now, if I use this code inside a page_load event, it does work. if I put it inside a button_click event i get nothing. i am mystified by this.. any help? why can't i use a button to display my gridview1 when i'm using a code behind.  

Is there a way to make SPS 2003 search fields search the MOSS indexes?

Here's my situation: We're doing a gradual migration from SPS to MOSS. Can anyone tell me if there's an easy way to make the SPS search fields search the MOSS indexes? The easiest way I can think of is to great a web part for SPS which will gather the scope and search param and redirect the user to the MOSS search result page. If there's an easier way. I'm all ears.

How to search a bound ListBox from a TextBox



I am just starting out with WPF and so please pardon me if I ask very ignorant questions but I'm finding WPF quite an up-hill struggle! 

I have created a fairly simple app that has a Listbox to the left that is bound to a DataTable to an OLEDB datasource. Above this Listbox there is a Textbox. What I am trying to do is use the Texbox as search/filter on the bound Listbox. Currently I can click inside the Listbox and start typing and it works perfectly well in finding the most appropriate Item with the IsTextSearchEnabled=True. I want to mimic this functionality but in the Textbox. Is this possible? Here is the xmal:

<Window x:Class="Test.WPF.BasicContactSearch1.ContactWindow"
    Title="Contact Window" Height="480" Width="640"
    xmlns:local="clr-namespace:Test.WPF.BasicContactSearch1" Loaded="Window_Loaded">
  <DockPanel Width="auto" Height="auto" Margin="8 8 8 8">
    <Border Height="56" HorizontalAlignment="Stretch" VerticalAlignment="Top" BorderThickness="1" CornerRadius="8" DockPanel.Dock="Top" Backgroun

How do I make it so when I user pressing return, it goes to the next line in a textbox?

I've got a textbox control on a WPF 4.0 app I've written.  This control allows for multiple lines, and that works fine.  However, my users like to be able to type something, hit the enter/return key which they're used to having it go to the next line in the textbox, where they then continue typing whatever it is they want to type.  Well, it's not doing that.  How do I make it do that?
