Can you show me how to do that?  I am very new in jquery, and my website currently have no jquery things installed.

Thanks

        public static string[] GetBrand(string prefixText, int count)
        {
            ServiceContract.Service serviceClient = new ServiceContract.Service();
            List<string> productList = serviceClient.GetProductListByKeyword(prefixText, count);
            var list = from p in productList
                       where p.Contains(prefixText)
                       select p;
            string[] prefixTextArray = list.ToArray<string>();
            return prefixTextArray;
        }

just reference jquery files.
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jqueryui/1/themes/redmond/jquery-ui.css" />
  <script src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1/jquery.min.js"></script>
<script src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jqueryui/1/jquery-ui.min.js"></script>

Open in new window

or your can download from http://jquery.com/download/ and http://jqueryui.com/
then call the autocomplete function inside script tags
<script type="text/javascript">
$(function() {
    
            $("#<%=searchpart.ClientID%>").autocomplete({
                source: "youraspxfilename.aspx" //aspx or ashx file where you have the webmethod
           });
});
</script>

Open in new window

you can find more examples in the web.

        {
            ServiceContract.Service serviceClient = new ServiceContract.Service();
            List<string> productList = serviceClient.GetProductListByKeyword(prefixText, count);
            var list = from p in productList
                       where p.Contains(prefixText)
                       select p;
            string[] prefixTextArray = list.ToArray<string>();

i am not sure about having the webmethod inside the ascx. you can put your method in any page, it can be a separate wsmx/ashx/aspx file. And just give the correct path in the Source: parameter.
