AutoCompleteExtender properties : CompletionInterval, CompletionListElementID, CompletionSetCount

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 22, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
Since ASP.NET AJAX 1.0 and I cannot find any documentation on the AutoCompleteExtender properties such as :

- CompletionInterval

- CompletionListElementID 

- CompletionSetCount

Please I would like to know what those properties do and how to use them !

If you google "CompletionListElementID", you'll get only 5 results, most of them are not very helpful.

I only found a tiny example (http://forums.asp.net/3/1458343/ShowThread.aspx) on how to format the list popping below the textbox using CompletionListElementID and a div but it seems like you can only reach the font-family and the font-size (neither the color nor the background-color for instance).

The dev team throws controls out there with no documentation and you're supposed to figure out on your own how they work ?!...

WCF Tip: Using Properties in Service Contracts

you'll notice all of the Service Contracts are implemented with interfaces containing only methods. For the longest time I thought that's all that was supported, until I thought about it a little more. In C# land, properties are simply wrappers around a get method and set method, so why wouldn't we be able to use properties in a service contract? Well the answer is we can.

Automatic vs Explicit Properties

If the reason that motivated the change from automatically implemented property to explicitly implemented property was to change the semantics of the property then you should evaluate whether the desired semantics when accessing the property from within the class are identical to or different from the desired semantics when accessing the property from outside the class.

Dependency Properties

When you begin to develop appliations with WPF, you will soon stumble across DependencyProperties. They look quite similar to normal .NET properties, but the concept behind is much more complex and powerful

Xml File Methods and Properties

Method and Properties of XmlTextWriter class:
The XmlWriter class is a base class that outputs an XML data structure. It has methods to sequentially write XML elements in a proper hierarchy to create an XML file or other types of output streams. The System.Xml namespace provides support for the XmlWriter. It must be imported to the ASP.NET page with the directive

<%@ Import Namespace="System.Xml" %>

The XmlTextWriter

XmlWriter is an abstract class that is implemented as an extended XMLTextWriter class. The XmlTextWriter writes a sequence of XML nodes one element at a time. Output can be written to an XML file, although other streams of output data can be produced. It can create a new file or overwrite an existing file. Its non-cached writing techniques provides very fast generation of an output stream.

C# conversion to VB and properties


I am trying to implement image caching for a web application and I found some code on the Internet that implements an HttpHandler that does this. The code was in C# and since my web app is written in VB, I decided to convert the code to VB. I managed to convert everything except the following code (in bold):

public class FileExtensionCollection : ConfigurationElementCollection
        public override ConfigurationElementCollectionType CollectionType
                return ConfigurationElementCollectionType.AddRemoveClearMap;

        public FileExtension this[int index]
            get { return (FileExtension)BaseGet(index); }

I've got a class

  public class Criminal

public HouseholdMember[] LiedAboutFSHousehold { get; set; }

      public HouseholdMember[] FoodstampTrafficingHousehold { get; set; }
HouseholdMember inherits Person, as do many other classes.  

  public class HouseholdMember: Person

Advanced Basics: Setting Word Document Properties the Office 2007 Way


The last time I wrote this column (March 2006), I shared an application that allows you to update all the Microsoft® Word documents in a folder and its subfolders. Each time the application finds a document in the specified path, it updates the document properties to match those you specified in the application.

Advanced Basics: Set Word Document Properties Programmatically


At the beginning of another lovely day of writing courseware in mad pursuit of unrealistic deadlines, I received a frantic call from a business partner. He was at the end of a long consulting project and had several hundred Microsoft® Word documents, all of which required their document properties to be set identically, except the Title property of the document, which was to be based on the document file name, minus the .

Deserializing nullable model properties


Hi everyone,

I'm posting Json data to an action that has a model class as a parameter using the JsonValueProviderFactory. Everything works except for any nullable properties in the model, such as double? and bool? - they always materialize as null, even if a value is posted.

I'm not sure if this issue is specific to the JsonValueProviderFactory, or MVC in general.

Being new to MVC I'd appreciate any help with this issue.


contextKey in AutoCompleteExtender

When I had a search, I got to know that using javascript we can fire the contextkey to the webservice. Could some one help me out in writing this script and how to use it in webservice ????

Using Ajax AutoCompleteExtender on dynamic fields



I have quite a problem with a form that contains an autocomplete function. The page is an aspx page with c# codebehind.

On the form there is an address field that the user can type in any string address. This field is using an Ajax autocomplete extender, which suggests roadnames to the user. This works fine.
Furthermore the user has the option to add multiple address fields when clicking a button. This works fine now with Jquery. Jquery copies the table which contains, besides other fields, the address field, and "paste" it underneath the existing adress field.

Problem is, how do I attach the Ajax autocomplete extender to the address fields that gets added? Or is there another workaround to make all these fields have this autocomplete function?

Here is my simplfied code:

aspx page:

<td width="200">
  <asp:TextBox ID="TextBoxStopRoadName" runat="server" Width="200"></asp:TextBox>
      <asp:AutoCompleteExtender runat="server"

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"

Personal view reverts back to default after updating properties of item


I am working with a company that has 1 site collection with several sub sites.  I have built 3 document libraries with workflow in 3 different sub sites and all behave as expected.  I have one site where ALL libraries do something perplexing;

If you are in a custom personal view and you go into the properties of a document and then exit (update or not, does not matter) it reverts back to the default view of that library. 

Has anyone seen this?  is there an option when creating an album that could cause this?

thanks in advance for any input on this odd issue.
