VS 2008 - AJAX extenders - eg AutoComplete - missing from toolbox

ASP.NET AJAX is built-into ASP.NET 3.5.
So I would expect to find the controls in the toolbox on Visual Studio 2008.Net
I am working through the Microsoft book ASP.NET 3.5 Step by Step and in an example it says (page 509) Pick up an AutoComplete extender from the AJAX Toolbox......
However, I can not find the AutoComplete Extender, and can not find it to add it to the toolkit.
Any ideas where I can find it ?
I am using the VS 2008 Professional 90 day trial version from Microsoft website.

ipaulino,
Thanks - I have downloaded the AJAX Control toolkit - and guessing the AjaxControlToolkit.dll was the file I needed, I have added it to the toolbox - and yes I have lots of new AJAX controls.

So does this mean that ASP 3.5 supports use of these AJAX controls, but Microsoft do not see fit to include them in Visual Studio 2008?

Ajax toolkit are just some extra controls, that's why (I guess) that they didn't include it on VS package.

Glad I could help!
