I'm trying to accomplish this with Linq to Sql and Asp.Net MVC:
I have a Drop Down List with options Country, City and State. And beside it, there is a textbox. So, an user will, for instance, select City and will type "new york city" in the textbox and the application will show himm the results of his choice.
So, how can I make a dynamic query based on what the user selected in the drop down? I'm not trying to make something hardcoded, because I intend to use this query with some other things.
Thanks a lot!!
It sounds like you are looking for an AJAX enabled auto complete textbox. Something similar to Ben Scheirman's blog article http://flux88.com/blog/jquery-auto-complete-text-box-with-asp-net-mvc/ would do the trick.
From the Linq 2 SQL side of the application it is hard to give you specific guidance on how to accomplish this because we know nothing about the design of your database. But I would image the query would be fairly simple to write.
Does that answer your question?
