I am trying to design a service that works with the onkeyup instead of the regular asp.textbox changed event.  the following is what I have but I do not know how to conenct the javascript function to the service and get the textbox information.
<asp:Content ID="Content1" ContentPlaceHolderID="HeadContent" Runat="Server">
    <script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
        function getnames() {
            var theName = document.getElementById("txtadmin")
        }
    </script>
</asp:Content>
<asp:Content ID="Content2" ContentPlaceHolderID="BodyContent" Runat="Server">
   
    <table width="100%">
        <tr>
            <td style="height:20px"></td>
        </tr>
        <tr>
            <td align="center">Add Admin:&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<asp:TextBox ID="txtAdmin" runat="server" Width="260" AutoPostBack="true" 
            AutoCompleteType="DisplayName" onkeyup="javascript:getNames();" />
            <asp:AutoCompleteExtender ID="txtAdmin_AutoCompleteExtender" runat="server" Enabled="True" TargetControlID="txtAdmin" 
            ServiceMethod="FindName" MinimumPrefixLength="0" />
            <asp:TextBoxWatermarkExtender ID="txtAdmin_TextBoxWatermarkExtender" runat="server" Enabled="True" TargetControlID="txtAdmin" 
            WatermarkText="Enter LastName First"/>
            </td>
        </tr>
    </table>
   
</asp:Content>



Partial Class Admin_test
    Inherits System.Web.UI.Page
    <System.Web.Services.WebMethod()> _
    <System.Web.Script.Services.ScriptMethod()> _
    Public Shared Function Findname(ByVal prefixText As String, ByVal count As String) As String()
        Return New AutoComplete().FindName(prefixText, count)
    End Function

    Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
        txtAdmin.Attributes.Add("onKeyup", "javascript(getnames();")
    End Sub
End Class

Change:
txtAdmin.Attributes.Add("onKeyup", "javascript(getnames();"
to
txtAdmin.Attributes.Add("onKeyup", "getnames()")

Note: Your javascript code is not fully implemented yet, but I suppose you want the above part working.

Hi,

It throws an error when i start to type in the textbox and gives me
Object expected and it highlights the SendRequest of the onkeyup

this is my code behind
 Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
        txtAdmin.Attributes.Add("onKeyup", "SendRequest()")
    End Sub


HTML
<asp:Content ID="Content1" ContentPlaceHolderID="HeadContent" Runat="Server">
    <script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
        function SendRequest() {
            AutoComplete.FindName('<%=txtAdmin.ClientID%>').value

        function OnComplete(arg) {
            alert(arg)
        }
    </script>
</asp:Content>
<asp:Content ID="Content2" ContentPlaceHolderID="BodyContent" Runat="Server">
   
    <table width="100%">
        <tr>
            <td style="height:20px"></td>
        </tr>
        <tr>
            <td align="center">Add Admin:&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;<asp:TextBox ID="txtAdmin" runat="server" Width="260" AutoPostBack="true"
            AutoCompleteType="DisplayName" />
            <asp:AutoCompleteExtender ID="txtAdmin_AutoCompleteExtender" runat="server" Enabled="True" TargetControlID="txtAdmin"
            ServiceMethod="FindName" MinimumPrefixLength="0" />
            <asp:TextBoxWatermarkExtender ID="txtAdmin_TextBoxWatermarkExtender" runat="server" Enabled="True" TargetControlID="txtAdmin"
            WatermarkText="Enter LastName First"/>
            </td>
        </tr>
    </table>
   
</asp:Content>

The service sits on a code behind page in my APp_code folder called autoComplete.vb which goes through a autocomplete.asmx file.

Imports System.Web
Imports System.Web.Services
Imports System.Web.Services.Protocols
Imports ReadinessCommon
Imports System.Data
Imports System.Data.SqlClient


' To allow this Web Service to be called from script, using ASP.NET AJAX, uncomment the following line.
<System.Web.Script.Services.ScriptService()> _
<WebService(Namespace:="http://tempuri.org/")> _
<WebServiceBinding(ConformsTo:=WsiProfiles.BasicProfile1_1)> _
<Global.Microsoft.VisualBasic.CompilerServices.DesignerGenerated()> _
Public Class AutoComplete
    Inherits System.Web.Services.WebService

    <WebMethod()> _
    Public Function FindName(ByVal prefixText As String, ByVal count As String) As String()
        Dim items As New List(Of String)

        sql = "SELECT strFullname FROM WorsDotNet.dbo.tblUser WHERE strFullName like '%" & prefixText & "%' ORDER BY strFullName ASC"

        myDataTable = New DataTable
        myDataTable = getData(sql)

        If myDataTable.Rows.Count > 0 Then
            For Each dRow As DataRow In myDataTable.Rows
                items.Add(dRow(0).ToString)
            Next
        End If

        Return items.ToArray
    End Function

Uhmm, I will change code as follows:
Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load
        txtAdmin.Attributes.Add("onKeyup", "SendRequest(this)")
    End Sub


HTML
<asp:Content ID="Content1" ContentPlaceHolderID="HeadContent" Runat="Server">
    <script language="javascript" type="text/javascript">
        function SendRequest(txtObj) {
           var results = AutoComplete.FindName(txtObj.id);
//Consume results if (results != null) then use it.
        }
    </script>
</asp:Content>
//All other code remain the same

Note: I notice that you are missing the scriptmanager in your html markup
<asp:ScriptManager ID="ScriptManager1" runat="server"
EnablePageMethods = "true">
Any AJAX page requires it, otherwise js may not work properly.

mas_oz2003:

The script manager sits in my sitemaster along with all the service requests, its easier than to put on every page.

Ok getting a bunch more errors, but the errors are ones I think I can handle.
