I use AutoCompleteExtender control in an application. When user types an account name to pull a report, the auto complete control lists the top 40 account names from database, user is able to select an account name or type exact account name to pull a report.
It works fine on regular browsers. But the auto complete function does not work on blackberry browser. No error message either. If user types an exact account name, a report can still be pulled. But if a user does not know an exact account name, no data
will return because that wrongly typed account name does not exist.
Does somebody know how I can make auto complete work on blackberry or does somebody know any alternative method?
Thanks in advance.

I suggest to drag a textbox, a dropdownlist and a (search) button to the page. Set the visible property of the dropdownlist to false. When you type a text, and hit the button, hide the textbox, show the dropdownlist and fil it with the values filtered by
the the value of the textbox, if someone hits the button, hide the dropdownlist and show the textbox...

I have a textbox,a search button (since blackberry browser does not take auto postback), and a dropdownlist along with the Get Report button. when search button is clicked, the dropdownlist is poplulated with the records that start with the value entered
in the textbox. if only one record is returned, this record is selected; otherwise, user needs to select the correct one. then user may click Get Report to pull the report.
this solution is well received by users.
