ASP.NET AJAX autocomplete textbox for suggestion

Posted on 2009-12-23
Last Modified: 2013-11-08
My autocomplete suggestion is working fine in my web app. But the issue is that when the suggestion list goes behind other controls. When I view my page in  google chrome I have no problem, but when I view in IE 8 the suggestion box goes behind other controls.

Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    work around suggestion:
    in the IE8.0 setting give IE ie8 compatibility mode, then it work fine.
    Upgrade IE8.0 Version

    I am not sure about IE8 compatibility try that too.

    If not, then try setting Z-Index of the DIV which gets displayed for the suggested values. This DIV z-index should be higher than all control in page so that any control after overlapping will not hide it.
