AutocompleteExtender Completion Question

AutocompleteExtender Completion Question

AutocompleteExtender Completion Question

I've finally figured out how to make an AJAX AutocompleteExtender work with a static method, but there's more I'd like to do with the input TextBox...

What I'd like to have happen, when an empty completion list is returned, is to turn the textbox's background red to let the user know that their entry is invalid.

Is that possible? What new technology do I get to learn in order to make it happen?!

Yes, use JS to change the css style of the textbox. Something like:

textboxObject.style.backgroundColor = "#dd0000";
