Easy is subjective to your skill set.
the second link will require less code and therefor shouldn't get into more client complications (still that depends on your skill set specially in javascript and understanding of json)

good luck

hi.. I have following example for that

 Write the following code in your aspx page

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head id="Head1" runat="server">
<title>AutoComplete Box with jQuery</title>
<link href="css/ui-lightness/jquery-ui-1.8.21.custom.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" />
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.4.2/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jqueryui/1.8.1/jquery-ui.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">
$(document).ready(function() {
SearchText();
});
function SearchText() {
$("#txtSearch").autocomplete({
source: function(request, response) {
$.ajax({
type: "POST",
contentType: "application/json; charset=utf-8",
url: "Default.aspx/GetAutoCompleteData",
data: "{'username':'" + extractLast(request.term) + "'}",
dataType: "json",
success: function(data) {
response(data.d);
},
error: function(result) {
alert("Error");
}
});
},
focus: function() {
// prevent value inserted on focus
return false;
},
select: function(event, ui) {
var terms = split(this.value);
// remove the current input
terms.pop();
// add the selected item
terms.push(ui.item.value);
// add placeholder to get the comma-and-space at the end
terms.push("");
this.value = terms.join(", ");
return false;
}
});
$("#txtSearch").bind("keydown", function(event) {
if (event.keyCode === $.ui.keyCode.TAB &&
$(this).data("autocomplete").menu.active) {
event.preventDefault();
}
})
function split(val) {
return val.split(/,\s*/);
}
function extractLast(term) {
return split(term).pop();
}
}
</script>
</head>
<body>
<form id="form1" runat="server">
<div class="demo">
<div class="ui-widget">
<label for="tbAuto">Enter UserName: </label>
<asp:TextBox ID="txtSearch" runat="server" Width="300px"></asp:TextBox>
</div>
</form>
</body>
</html>


 Another thing here we need to know is script functions in header section

$("#txtSearch").autocomplete({
source: function(request, response) {
$.ajax({
type: "POST",
contentType: "application/json; charset=utf-8",
url: "Default.aspx/GetAutoCompleteData",
data: "{'username':'" + extractLast(request.term) + "'}",
dataType: "json",
success: function(data) {
response(data.d);
},
error: function(result) {
alert("Error");
}
});

This is the function declaration of JSON format we are using this JSON function to call web methods using JQuery $.ajax() whenever we need to make Ajax call with JQuery then we will use JSON functions like as we mentioned in above format.

for vb.net

 Imports System.Collections.Generic
Imports System.Data.SqlClient
Imports System.Web.Services

Partial Class Default
Inherits System.Web.UI.Page
Protected Sub Page_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs) Handles Me.Load

End Sub

<WebMethod()> _
Public Shared Function GetAutoCompleteData(ByVal username As String) As List(Of String)
Dim result As New List(Of String)()
Using con As New SqlConnection("Data Source=SureshDasari;Integrated Security=true;Initial Catalog=MySampleDB")
Using cmd As New SqlCommand("select DISTINCT UserName from UserInformation where UserName LIKE '%'+@SearchText+'%'", con)
con.Open()
cmd.Parameters.AddWithValue("@SearchText", username)
Dim dr As SqlDataReader = cmd.ExecuteReader()
While dr.Read()
result.Add(dr("UserName").ToString())
End While
Return result
End Using
End Using
End Function
End Class
