Problem with Asp.Net AJAX AutocompleteExtender

Posted on 2009-02-08

I'm having an awful time get the Autocomplete extender working for a site.  I've got the webservice set it, it gets called and returns the list of suggestions, but it's not showing the list of suggestions on the page.  Could there be a setting I'm missing on the textbox?

Also, if I don't specify at the creation of the web site that it needs to be AJAX-enabled, what's the easiest way to change it?

<%@ Page Language="C#" AutoEventWireup="true" CodeFile="Default.aspx.cs" Inherits="_Default" %>

<%@ Register Assembly="AjaxControlToolkit" Namespace="AjaxControlToolkit" TagPrefix="cc1" %>

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "">

<html xmlns="" >

<head runat="server">

    <title>Untitled Page</title>




    <form id="form1" runat="server">

     <asp:ScriptManager ID="ScriptManager1" runat="server">



        <asp:TextBox ID="TextBox1" runat="server" ></asp:TextBox>

        <cc1:AutoCompleteExtender runat="server"
