please read the Code Project Quick Answers FAQ[^]
Have you searched or Googled for a solution?

A simple Google search query would have returned the answer, which would be that "you can use jQuery UI for this". jQuery UI has a set of functions that are used for creating dynamic web pages. Autocomplete is a feature where you provide the user with a set of possible results depending on his current input value.

Go to this[^] page and test the code from the jQuery UI. You will be able to view the source code of the sample too.

already i have used this code , but instead of hard coded , i need to get the string values from database.(value field and text field)

You can for that get the hardcoded string from a variable that takes the values from database. Simple!

That is because you're not passing the values in the JavaScript, you need to be using an assignment operator to transfer the data returned by the ASP.NET code to the JS code.

For example,

success: function (data) {
// assign it to the variable which would contain
// the list for the AutoComplete list.
autoCompleteList = data;
