lookup on a big table

Discussion in 'ASP .Net' started by =?Utf-8?B?TmVkaW0=?=, Jan 29, 2007.

  1. does anyone have a suggestion how to make a lookup in a web form on a table
    with over 20 thousand records? the usual drop down list doesnt seem like a
    viable solution, i was hoping for something with autocomplete (i'm using
    asp.net ajax, atlas or how it's called now).

    going on a different page seems also like not the best solution, because
    then i would have to memorize the previous page content, and i would have to
    do that for each page that uses that lookup (i was planning on making this
    lookup a web control that would be included in a lot of pages).

  3. Both Microsoft AJAX and the free Anthem.Net AJAX framework offer an
    "autosuggest" or "autocomplete" control for this. All you need to do is look
    at the provided examples.
