How to handle JQuery Ajax Results

Posted on 2009-05-08

Hi to all,

I am trying to use the JQuery Plugin found here:

I am new to JavaScript so I am not sure how to handle the data returned by my Ajax request. The code below is what I think it should be, but the response is not populating the auto complete drop down. That is the only part that I am not sure of and I am pretty sure that is the part that is wrong, but again... I am new to this so I can't be sure where I am going wrong.

Any Help would be appretiated.

Members.aspx.vb Page:
Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
Dim AllMembers As DataTable = LoadMembers()
Dim WholeAddress As String = Nothing
For Each member In AllMembers.Rows
Dim MemberName As String = member("Member Name").ToString()
Response.Write("Name:" & MemberName & Environment.NewLine)
End Sub
$().ready(function() {
        // Give each example an anchor tag
        var count = 1;
        $.each($('.demo'), function() {
            var $example = $(this);
            $example.before('<a name="demo' + count++ + '" />');
        // Set up our example table of contents
        count = 1; // reset our counter
        var $toc = $('#toc');
        $.each($('.example > td'), function() {
            var $td = $(this);
            var anchor = $(document.createElement('a')).attr('href', '#demo' + count++);
            // Create link back to top (floated right)
                .html('<a href="#toc">Top</a>')
                .css('float', 'right')
<form id="form1" runat="server">
<div style="height:18px"></div>
<div id="ffb2"></div>

I tried what you said: Sample one first and that also did not work. Maybe it is something I am doing. I looked at the other post and that also did not work.
Any help further would be appreciated.

{"results":[  ...... And end with : ]}
