AutoCompleteExtender doesn't work

Why does the following does not work?


<asp:ScriptManager ID="ScriptManager1" runat="server" />
   
<asp:TextBox ID="txt" runat="server"></asp:TextBox>
<ajaxToolkit:AutoCompleteExtender ID="ace1" runat="server" TargetControlID="txt"
  ServicePath="test.asmx" ServiceMethod="GetCompletionList"
  MinimumPrefixLength="1"
  CompletionInterval="1000"></ajaxToolkit:AutoCompleteExtender>


I have a test.asmx with the following code:

[WebMethod]
        public string[] GetCompletionList(string prefixText, int count)
        {
            if (count == 0)
            {
                count = 10;
            }

            if (prefixText.Equals("xyz"))
            {
                return new string[0];
            }

            Random random = new Random();
            List<string> items = new List<string>(count);
            for (int i = 0; i < count; i++)
            {
                char c1 = (char)random.Next(65, 90);
                char c2 = (char)random.Next(97, 122);
                char c3 = (char)random.Next(97, 122);

                items.Add(prefixText + c1 + c2 + c3);
            }

            return items.ToArray();
        }


When debugging, the debugger never stops at the WebMethod.

What could be the reason for that?

Thanks

hi Relegence,

                    There is a tutorial , which will guide you to proceed further.

Use the ASP.NET AJAX AutoComplete Control:
