If you have ever tried loading a large number of records into a drop down box you know that this can significantly slow downrepparttar page. A great solution is DbCombo ( DbCombo is a managed ASP.Net control that uses a datasource to auto complete and display matching results in a drop-down box without using a page postback.

The data is provided fromrepparttar 133388 datasource dynamically so you can virtually have an unlimited number of results returned. This is all done without sacrificingrepparttar 133389 speed of your application. Can you imagine loading 100,000 records into a standard box? It is virtually impossible but DbCombo can easily handle this and it's literally done in a matter of seconds.

If you have visitors that use your site with older browsers there is no need to be concerned about compatibility. DbCombo gracefully degrades to HTML 3.2 on older browsers without losing any functionality. Inrepparttar 133390 degraded state a postback is necessary but it all happens dynamically without having to write additional code.

Forrepparttar 133391 advanced developer DbCombo contains over 40 properties. There are also numerous JavaScript functions that allow you to interact with DbCombo on your page and do things like easily getrepparttar 133392 selected text or resetrepparttar 133393 control. These properties and functions allowrepparttar 133394 component to be easily customized for a variety of needs.

DbCombo is easy enough to use that even casual developers can incorporate it into their site and it only takes a small amount of code to get it working. Here's a simple example of how to include this powerful control in your page.

First you need to create a file called DbComboServer.aspx and place it inrepparttar 133395 root of your site or application. This file is needed in order for DbCombo to work properly and is in addition torepparttar 133396 page(s) that you are going to actually use DbCombo on. Delete anything fromrepparttar 133397 file that might have been automatically generated from your editor and replace it withrepparttar 133398 following:

<%@ Page AutoEventWireup="false" Inherits="Cambro.Web.DbCombo.ServerPage" %>

Important: The above line isrepparttar 133399 only thing that should be in that file. If your editor created a code behind page for DbComboServer.aspx you can also delete that. It isn't used or needed.

Next you need to ensure that DbCombo will work onrepparttar 133400 production server. Addrepparttar 133401 following insiderepparttar 133402 tag of your web.config and replace REGISTRATION KEY withrepparttar 133403 one you were provided. If you are testing locally on your development machine you can leave this as is or leaverepparttar 133404 registration key blank.

If you happen to have a hosting provider that providesrepparttar 133405 license key already, you don't need to add this to web.config. ORCS Web ( provides dbcombo at no charge for all shared hosting accounts so it isn't necessary to add this to your web.config. The component along withrepparttar 133406 .xml file also needs to be uploaded torepparttar 133407 /bin folder ofrepparttar 133408 site. If your site is hosted with a hosting company they can place these files into your /bin folder for you.
