I'm attempting to implement a set of javascript functions that produce type ahead functionality for a .net dropdown list box as found at:
http://aspalliance.com/articleViewer.aspx?aId=775&pId=-1

Alas, that solution assumes .net 2.0 where the code-behind rests on using the block below. I _think this is doing nothing more complicated  than assigning a javascript function to an event on the rendered web control...can that be achieved in the 1.1 framework?

{
  Type typ = GetType();
  if (!Page.ClientScript.IsClientScriptIncludeRegistered(typ, js))
  Page.ClientScript.RegisterClientScriptInclude(typ, js, js);
  ddlTest.Attributes.Add("onKeyDown", "TADD_OnKeyDown(this);");
}

thx

Thankx...I've been able to get basic functionality working by using:

        Dim scriptString As String
        scriptString = "<script language=JavaScript>"
        scriptString = scriptString & "TADD_OnKeyDown(this);"
        scriptString = scriptString & "</script>"

        If (Not IsStartupScriptRegistered("ddFindUser")) Then
            RegisterStartupScript("ddFindUser", scriptString.ToString)
        End If

        ddFindUser.Attributes.Add("onKeyDown", "TADD_OnKeyDown(this);")

Where I'm populating a dropdown thusly:
        ddFindUser.DataSource = ds.Tables(0).DefaultView
        ddFindUser.DataTextField = "strUName"
        ddFindUser.DataValueField = "UserIdentity"
        ddFindUser.Items.Insert(0, "All")
        ddFindUser.DataBind()

That produces this line in the rendered control:
<select name="ddFindUser" id="ddFindUser" onKeyDown="TADD_OnKeyDown(this);">
(Since I don't have any 2.0 projects setup i can't run a test against the original code to see how _it renders the HTML control, but this certainly _looks like it should look....

And the type ahead functionality _does, in fact, work. However...after IE has loaded the page it reports a javascript error occurred at this point in one of the js functions that, to all outward appearances, is working correctly:

function TADD_OnKeyDown(tb)
{
  if (event.ctrlKey) //this line reports error: 'Object required'
  return;
 
NOTE: the error is reported via the status bar page load indicator...not a popup dialog explicitly presented to the user.

it appears that the only thing I need to do is:
        ddFindUser.Attributes.Add("onKeyDown", "TADD_OnKeyDown(this);")


The RegisterStartupScript block is not needed. It appears that block had been adding an addtional line at the page level causeing the error.
