I'm using ASP.NET, VB , Visual Studio 2010 and SQL Server.
I'm using the jQuery Autocomplete widget
I already know how to use the Autocomplete widget by using a Web Service that queries a Sql Server table and returns json data which is the data source for the Autocomplete widget.
I'm not an expert with the Autocomplete widget so I just had a question about the functionality of it.
My question pertains to an autocomplete that looks like the image below
If I have my autocomplete widget that returns 9 digit userids that are integer type like the image above.
When one of the userids are chosen from the autocomplete.
Then the selected 9 digit userid is placed in the autocomplete widget textbox.
Also I have three blank asp textboxes sitting there on the page.
When I select a userid from the autocomplete,
the first 3 digits of my selected userid are placed in textbox1
, and digits 4,5 and 6 from my selected userid are placed in textbox2
and digits 7,8,9 are placed in textbox3
Is it possible to do something like this with the autocomplete widget?
If not, do you know if it's possible to do it with the AutoComplete and the AutoCompleteExtender control that comes with ASP.NET AJAX Control Toolkit?
Does anyone know a link to an example on the web for something similar to what I described above for either using either of these two methods?
