Hi everyone,
I have been trying to make the plug-in work ... it works fine when I fetched some prefill data (using Javascript object)... However when I made it fetch the data from a web url: when an item exist, nothing happens, however when I typed in something that does not exist, it shows popup that says "No results found"...

This is my calling function:
$(document).ready(function() {

            $(function() {
            $("input[id=test]").autoSuggest("../QueryUserInfo.ashx", { minChars: 2, selectedItemProp: "value", searchObjProps: "name" )});});

and here is the data returned:

[{value:"test", name:"Test Users"},{value:"testing", name:"Still Testing"}]

Did anyone see this kind of situation before ?

    What's the problem you are facing ? You need to make sure that the JSON data you output is in correct format .... Check the example prefill data posted on the homepage, you might find something :)

    I'm really new to ASP.NET so trying to write the .ashx file is confusing me. Would anyone be willing to post or email me an example .ashx file? Thanks for you help!
