I am using visual studio 2015 to develop a web application which would be having a search box whereupon it would return results while typing ( something similar to the site like ) . I am really confused with the versions of because i am using visual studio 2015 and most of the resultant projects (after googling them) are done in earlier versions. I tried using ajaxcontroltoolkit but failed ( )
Please help me to complete this with the codes
Thank you

The above were designed in previous versions of, so i don't know weather this should work in visual studio 2015
I really want a very simple way of solving it

I would suggest you forget about the AjaxControlToolkit and look at using the jQuery UI Autocomplete. It is much simpler to work with.

jQuery UI Autocomplete - Autocomplete | jQuery UI[^]

Using the jQuery UI Autocomplete with ASP.Net Webforms - Implement jQuery AutoComplete TextBox from database using AJAX PageMethods in ASP.Net[^]

It's hard to tell without your code. I would recommend create a new question and posting your code.
