Hey all,

I'm looking at binding a DataTable to the drop down.  There are 2 columns (Code and Name) in the DataTable and 1,400+ rows.

Ideally, I want to be able to search as you type.  But it seems to take forever to do it.  I am binding in code to do this when the page is loaded using the following simple 3 lines:

WebDropDown1.DataSource = ds.Tables(0)
WebDropDown1.TextField =
WebDropDown1.DataKeyFields = "Code"

Is there a fast way to do this when running (or any suggestions) ?

Can you display Code and Name in the dropdown portion?  I've looked at the WebCombo which pretty much displays what I want but is slow also - and I can't see how to implment search as you type.

Any pointers would be good thanks.
