Please see http://www.experts-exchange.com/Web_Development/Software/Visual_Interdev/Q_21735952.html
Is there something similar for ASP.Net 2.0 as I think the syntax may not be valid any more.
Can I use the text changed event as onkeydown doesn't exist (at least in visual studio 2005 web forms)?

You can achieve this using "AutoCompleteExtender" of AJAX Control Toolkit. Cool one....

I have visual studio 2005 and ASP.NET 2.0, so I don't think the AJAX control toolkit is available.
What does it mean to be "Always On"?

I'm not sure we're allowed to download this software in our company.  Is there a way of doing this without AJAX?

I got round this by having a drop down box and a textbox.  Users can select what they want in the drop down box and it goes into the text box.  Otherwise they can type what they want in the text box.

The Ajax control toolkit is a MICROSORT addin to Visual Studio. You unzip the download and import it into the toolkit. No installing software

A fudge, but it achieves what I want.
