  1. Good working functionality using jquery to Searchable DropDownList

  2. This comment has been removed by the author.

  3. How do I use it with master pages?

  4. Its Not working with Master Content Page Please Solve.

  5. Thank you, It's working properly. But there is only one problem. I have done validation on text box using Jquery 3.3.1 in tool-tip. And know Jquery 3.3.1 and Jquery 1.8.3 has collision with each other, one of the two is working at a time. Can you please give me a solution on this.

  6. Fantastic product!
    If you style the div element the control is in to "display:inline-block;" the dropdown can be displayed on the same line as a label. Just a thought.

  7. I get this error:

    TypeError: this.size is not a function

    Does anyone know why?

  8. Will it work only with specific version jquery 1.8.3 or the later version like jquery-3.2.1.min.js, please respond
