CipherIS asked
Last Modified: 2016-01-14
Below is an example of an ASP.NET page I am working with.  I was looking at the jquery plugin typeahead.  Is it possible to integrate that to filter the dropdown box control?  I've been trying to find examples of how to integrate it but haven't found anything.  The example provided is using a hard coded list where I am pulling data from a database.


<%@ Page Title="Maintenance" Language="C#" MasterPageFile="~/baseFrame.master" AutoEventWireup="true" Inherits="Maint" Codebehind="Maint.aspx.cs" %>
<%@ MasterType VirtualPath="~/baseFrame.master" %>
<%@ Register TagPrefix="uc1" TagName="docFolder" Src="docFolder.ascx" %>
<asp:Content ID="Content1" ContentPlaceHolderID="cphHead" Runat="Server">
<asp:Content ID="Content2" ContentPlaceHolderID="cphBody" Runat="Server">
<table class="smallList" width="95%" border="0">
	<tr align="center">
		<td class="instruction"><asp:label id="lblMessage" runat="server" EnableViewState="False"></asp:label></td>
	<tr align="center">
			<table class="smallList" width="95%">
					<td vAlign="top" width="50%">
						<table width="100%">
								<td>Card Type</td>
								<td><asp:dropdownlist id="ddlcdType" runat="server"></asp:dropdownlist></td>
