Return Key/Value instead of just one single value using autocomplete ajaxtoolkit

Is it correct that there is no way to use the AutoComplete to get an ID value?

In otherwords, when they are done with the control, I  want the text in the textbox, and also I want the database ID value behind it,

Basically i want dropdown functionality in autocomplete textbox, where i can have two things text and value.

in Ajax Tool Kit source  files change the appropriate functions which manages AutoComplete functionality.In AutoCompleteBehavior.js and AutoCompleteExtender.cs files you must do some modifications. but you must be familiar with javascript.

Try to find another free autocomplete combobox. You can easily find and implement it. do some googling. For example search codeproject.com
