You will have to implement the autocomplete Idea on the field template.
That article should get you started!

I am currently trying to understand some of your hierarchical solutions. I have seen them and I am very pleased with the ChangingAware one. Nevertheless, I find difficult trying to do the cascading beyond the second level because I need
the second dropdownlist to be of two kinds at the same time: ChildChangingAwareFieldTemplate as to consume the event fired by its parent and also of the ParentChangeNotifyingFieldTemplate as to fire the event which should be consumed by the third dropdownlist.
Is there a way of making a single control both: parent and children at the same time Thank you

I would like to explain the reason why I like the ChangingAware version: I have understood how to make my own filtering inside
PopulateListControlt(DropDownList1) which is a quite simple than trying to understand more complex versions of cascading like “Part 3 – A Cascading Hierarchical Field Template & Filter for Dynamic Data (http://csharpbits.notaclue.net/2010/06/part-3-cascading-hierarchical-field.html)”

Yes, that is not used for that I use the cascading Filters and FieldTemplates see these articles I now prefer the second set of controls now in DD4

Thank you . If I have understood, “Communicating Between FieldTemplates in Dynamic Data (UPDATED) (http://csharpbits.notaclue.net/2009/05/communicating-between-fieldtemplates-in.html)”
has been superseded by “Cascading or Dependant Field Templates for ASP.Net 4.0 Preview (http://csharpbits.notaclue.net/2009/03/cascading-or-dependant-field-templates.html
)”. Is that correct? Thank you again.

Yes, it seems that the link has been substituted. I guess so……
