Autocomplete with VB.NET and ASP.NET?

Posted on 2005-04-11
Last Modified: 2008-03-03
Hey, I'm using VB.NET and learning ASP.NET right now.

I learned VB a few years back (VB6) and LOVED the fact that you could type part of the command, and when you hit the period it'd give a little dropdown of all your options.

I'm just wondering if there's a way to get VB.NET to do this while programming ASP.NET webpages?

Thanks for any help!

    Not with VB.NET no...

    Javascript you can hack something out that might kind of resemble it.

    if you're using web matrix then unfortunately the autocomplete doesn't exist. if you're using visual studio though, the feature is known as Intelli-Sense and autocompletes words as well as giving parameter information and more. here's the lowdown from msdn:

    hope this helps,
