AutoComplete Textbox in ASP.net MVC using Jquery.

Using MVC and jquery you can easily create an autocomplete textbox in Asp.net MVC.

Include JQuery reference and css on page.

     <script src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.11.1/jquery.min.js"></script>

    <link rel="stylesheet" href="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jqueryui/1.11.2/themes/smoothness/jquery-ui.css" />

    <script src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jqueryui/1.11.2/jquery-ui.min.js"></script>


Add textbox on View(Autocomplete.cshtml)

Product: @Html.TextBox("productName")


In Controller, Create a function that will return the list of autocomplete values in the JSON format.

public ActionResult Autocomplete()
            ViewBag.Message = "Your app description page.";

            return View();

        public JsonResult getData(string term)
            List<string> lst = new List<string>();
            lst.Add("IT Pathsala");
            lst.Add("Ravi Ranjan");

            List<string> getValues = lst.Where(item => item.ToLower().StartsWith(term.ToLower())).ToList();

            // Return the result set as JSON
            return Json(getValues, JsonRequestBehavior.AllowGet);

Add Script on View Page.

<script type="text/javascript">
        $(function ()
                source: function (request, response)
                    $.getJSON("/Home/getData?term=" + request.term, function (data)
                minLength: 1,
                delay: 100
