I have a textbox that uses an autocomplete extender to get suggestions from a database table. When I run the website from visual studio 2008, the text box autocompletes perfectly, however, after publishing the website and viewing the page from my laptop,
I get no autocomplete suggestions when I type into the text box.
I am viewing the website with IE7.
Has anyone seen this behaviour before and what can I do to get it working on my published website?

"Visual Studio 2008"

From the description its seems that webservice is not returning any data. Is the web service (.asmx) is part of the same website? if the web site is hosted in some other location this will not fetch any data.

The webservice is part of the same website, in fact the website is published on the same machine as the dev environment.
If I access the .asmx from the IE7 browser, I see what i'd expect, a list of supported operations including the getSearchTerm.

We can retrieve the data via web service when we test it from IE. This indicates that we deploy it correctly, including database connection string.
Did you get any error message? We can view logs in Windows Event Viewer.
We can use Visual Studio debugger to attach to the process (such as aspnet_wp) where your application is running to investigate this issue. We can insert Breakpoint in the web service code to make sure this service is been called. For more information about
attaching to process, see
I look forward to hearing from you.

No error message and nothing in the logs. You can type in the text box, but the autocomplete does not display the suggestions.

Still no joy finding a solution to this problem ... Could it be an IE7 settings issue or an IIS issue (as it works within the visual studio environment)? Has no-one else seen this problem?

I have had no issues using AutoComplete within IE7.
Could you post your relevant code for us to view?

Here's the code (or at least the relevant snippets ...) As I say, it works fine when run from visual studio, but once the website is published it doesn't work ...
