Hi Guys,

I have a dropdownlist that is being populated with entries from an sql database, the dropdownlist has about 50 entries already. What i aim to do is allow the users to type within the dropdownlist and it generates from that list a smaller subset of items based on what was typed by the user.

I need this because to scroll through a dropdownlist has become a pain staking task for users.

If anyone has a simple solution i would welcome it thank you.

Try a jQuery auto-complete dropdown ... easy to setup and works pretty good.

Here's an example, but there are many others: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/josephkiran
