I am creating an asp.net application in VB.net I have a database connected to it. The database contains a lot of information for example users, vendors etc. Currently I have a dropdown menu which is just too long to be doing through it just to find the vendor you want. Now I want to create a search box so that when I want to get a specific vendor (I already have all the vendors details on the database such as address and contacts) I want to start typing the vendors name and I want it to look in the database then start giving me matching data to what I m typing to what already exists.
For example, when you do a search on google, normally it will start giving you matches to what you typing in or something similar to what you have already searched for. I wonder if anyone knows how to do it in VB.net and MySQL that would be helpful.
Thanks in advance!
