hi friends,

I have the textbox ,i am trying to enter the data.If i type first letter it should pulldown the data starting with that letter,so that i can select the particuler one in that list with out typing all the word.

Example one is like yahoo,

while sending the mail to our freind,in TO filed if we type letter 'r' it shows all the mails which starts with the letter 'r'.Then we can select the particuler mail id and send the mail to our friend.


like that i want to implement .Anybody can give idea to me to implement that type of facility for my application.

regards,
babu.

Called typeahead or autocompete. Search the inernet and you will find JavaScript or Ajax based solutions. (Yahoo offers a toolkit online with the control in it.)
