JQuery Autocomplete "Internal Server Error"


This is something that is very common for all of us to encounter. I encountered this N no. of times during my work and most of the times for all new reasons then before.

Here are a few things that you could look out for:

This error clearly mentions that it is a "Server Error" which means we could not get a proper response back from the server. So chk for these....

1. Make sure you are calling to the correct WebService and correct Method of the webservice.

2. The make sure you pass the correct name of the parameter as requested by the WebMethod.

3. The method should be marked as WebMethod in the WebService.

4. Debug through your Webmethod to see if it fails somewhere.

5. If you are not at all getting the Webmethod to hit (Which was precisely my case), then look for the
tag above your asmx.

To allow this Web Service to be called from script, using ASP.NET AJAX, you need to have the  following line on top of your WebService declaration


Hope this helps...

Could not find any resources appropriate for the specified culture or the neutral culture. Make sure "AjaxControlToolkit.Properties.Resources.NET4.resources" was correctly embedded or linked into assembly "AjaxControlToolkit" at compile time, or that all the satellite assemblies required are loadable and fully signed.

Thats the Error: 

Reason:  AjaxControlToolkit’s control load reference refers to the base System.Web.UI.Control method which is present as a part of the ASP.NET AJAX Libraries and those libraries are referenced only when the ScriptManager is referenced in the page.

Solution: - Add a ScriptManager control to your page.

<asp:ScriptManager ID="ScriptManager1" runat="server">

The Controls collection cannot be modified because the control contains code blocks

The above error is very common when we try to access server side values on client side using Javascript.

The solution to this problem is simple.

1. The Server Tag to get values of any variable or property is as below
var propVal = '<%= ServerSideProperty %>';
This is also particulartly helpful when accessing Web.Config values in Javascript as:
var configVal = '<%= ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["ConfigPropName"] %>';

This would raise the above error. And the solution to it, "Replace the "=" with a "#""
So now your properties would be something like
var propVal = '<%= ServerSideProperty %>';
var configVal = '<%= ConfigurationManager.AppSettings["ConfigPropName"] %>';

Now, if you are accessing any Data bound values, such as in a grid view etc, then this would work good for you but for accessing properties or other variables, here is another small piece of code required.

On Page Load, we need to Bind these together using
Unless you do this, you would not be able to access these values and they would return a BLANK.
