Implementing Search as we type on a Textbox in .Net (For Address search)

I am using .Net and want to implement a textbox that searches addresses and displays suggestions on a textbox.

The  user should be able to select a relevant address from the suggestions displayed and then use this address for some query further.

We have a table called "ADDRESSES" in the back end on SQL Server (We have 2008-R2 and 2016 available for use)
I think there can be caching or database based method..........

What is the best way to do this?

Hello SHANCHAT972,

Other way could be using JQuery  and a webservice to get the values from the database.

This is a good resource to return and select the ID of the selected information in the Textbox.
