I'm unable to use for the moment ajaxtoolkit (for 2.0), so I need to implement jquery autocomplete functionality to filter my gridview data (using solution described here
Using code attached, the interface does not generate list values (although the data source is ok - stringbuilder contains data) and I don't how to capture the user selected value, in order to filter my gridview (a webservice perhaps?)
In Firebug, GET is ok, but in GETs' XML tab there is an error:"XML Parsing Error: no element found Location: moz-nullprincipal:{f199a471-4b31-4838-be33-e3ab76de4cee} Line Number 1, Column 1:"

Thanks

Usually, the XML Parse error is due to the Ajax request not returning xml and instead, returning an HTML error message. You say the GET is OK but verify the data returned. Go to the Ajax request from your browser to view the xml returned is as expected (view source if necessary) and not and error page.

I looked at it again - your sb variable is built up but not returned to the caller of the ashx.

    public void ProcessRequest

You need to return this data in the format needed by the autocomplete.

I'm trying to implement it as attached, but the error is:

Error      7      'Baza' does not implement interface member 'System.Web.IHttpHandler.ProcessRequest(System.Web.HttpContext)'. 'Baza.ProcessRequest(System.Web.HttpContext)' is either static, not public, or has the wrong return type.      

public string ProcessRequest (HttpContext context) 
    {
        string searchText = context.Request.QueryString["q"];
        StringBuilder sb = new StringBuilder();
        if (HttpContext.Current.Session["BaseCustomerList"] != null)
        {
            DataTable dt = (DataTable)HttpContext.Current.Session["BaseCustomerList"];
            foreach (DataRow dr in dt.Select("Company_Name LIKE '" + searchText + "%'"))
            { 
            sb.Append(dr["Company_Name"])
                .Append(Environment.NewLine);
            }
        }
        return sb.ToString();
    }

got it, it was missing "context.Response.Write(sb.ToString());"
now, after selecting an item from autocomplete list, how should I use it to filter the gridview?

I just need the jquery script/function that can pass the selected result to server, in order to filter the gridview's datatable source
