Auto-complete extender and default button of a panel - Enter key issues


Hi. I have a text box with an auto-complete extender attached to it. This is in a panel. Now, I have set the default button of the panel to the submit button of the panel.


      <text box/>




Now, I find that when the auto-complete options show up and I try to select an option using the enter key, the button is pressed (triggering a postback) due to it being the defaultbutton of the panel.

I want to be able to select an aut-complete option using the enter key and yet not post back. Therefore, the enter key (when the text box is in focus) should not trigger a postback. How can I achieve this?

Auto Complete Extender key value pair in Listview



I'm pretty new to ASP.Net and I came across a problem using Ajax AutocompleteExtender. Currently I'm trying to update the database table through ListView. More precisely - I'm trying to update foreign key (PARTNER_ID). Basically I need the DropDown functionality out of a Autocomplete Extender because I have a very long list of partners. I managed to get key/value pairs back to Autocomplete Extender but I can't insert the value into a hidden filed that I use to update the table. This is as far as I got - the error I get from compiler is:

Compiler Error Message: CS0103: The name 'ACEValueEdit' does not exist in the current context

Here is the code:


Page Title="" Language="C#" MasterPageFile="~/Site.Master" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeBehind="OdgovorneOsobe.aspx.cs" Inherits="Farmex_CRM.WebForm3" %>

auto complete extender


I'm new-ish to asp.net/vb...and just now trying to implement the ajax autocompleteextender & using web services for the first time,...So please understand if my question is vague...

I’m trying to implement the ajax autocompleteextender onto an existing page I have…

 It’s not working…I think I’m probably not creating the web service correctly???  As of now, I have a “dummy” web service…it should just return “hello world” as an option when the user types anything into the test textbox.  I don’t see that it’s calling the web service at all.  Nothing happens when I type in the testAutoComplete textbox.  No errors.  Is there a way to test if it’s even calling the web service?  Or, run the web service by itself, to see if that is created OK?  This might be the first ajax thing I have in my website…so maybe the site is not “ajax-enabled” or something?  But, the “<asp:AutoCompleteExtender>” does not error, so I kinda don’t think so?


Here’s my aspx page with the autocompleteextender (/ProductMaintenance/Main/ProductSearch.aspx):

 <asp:TextBox ID="testAutoComplete" runat="server"></asp:TextBox>

How do I label my AJAX Slider Extender?

Ajax Calendar Extender Within Gridview

I'm tasked with creating an editable gridview which contains several columns for input including a Start Date and End Date column. All columns are created dynamically at runtime based on a user's selection in a dropdown list. I would like to have an Ajax Calendar Extender attached to all text boxes in the Start and End Date Columns but since the table is made dynamically I need to add it in code behind. Most examples I've seen add ajax calendars to a gridview using template columns but i can not do this in my case. The following is my handling of the rowdatabound event - How do i edit this to attach a calendar extender to columns 1 and 2?1 protected void GridView1_RowDataBound(Object sender, GridViewRowEventArgs e) 2 { 3 TextBox txt; 4 if (e.Row.RowType == DataControlRowType.DataRow) 5 { 6 for(int i = 0; i < e.Row.Cells.Count; i++) 7 { 8 for (int j = 0; j < e.Row.Cells[i].Controls.Count; j++) 9 { 10 if (e.Row.Cells[i].Controls[j] is TextBox) 11 { 12 txt = (TextBox)e.Row.Cells[i].Controls[j]; 13 if (txt != null && Page.IsPostBack) 14 { 15 txt.Text = Request.Form[txt.UniqueID]; 16
