Hi,

I have the following items on my web form:

1) TextBox
2) AutoCompleteExtender
3) Button

By default, if i type something in the "TextBox" then "AutoCompleteExtender" will show the suggestions. I want the suggestions list to show up when i clicked on "Button" not by default when i type in "TextBox". Can you please provide me the code for this functionality. Similary for closing the suggestion list also.

Thanks

Disable the AutoCompleteExtender by default and only enable it by setting the Enabled property when the button is clicked.

In your aspx for the AutoCompleteExtender tag:

Enabled="False"

and in your codebehind in the event from the button:

AutoCompleteExtender1.Enabled = true;

Or better said <ID of AutoCompleteExtender>.Enabled = true;
