Troubleshoot Web Service; Ajax AutoComplete events do not appear to not fire; Ajax web service appears to not work. .NET

Folks, I had the situation that Ajax AutoComplete events in the web service did not fire after I copied a project out of a folder, renamed it and moved it to a server. The fix was hard to find but easy to solve. I had some web service modules in an ASMX file that provided AutoComplete entries -- i.e., after the user keys in 2 or 3 characters, the list of possible entries with those leading characters is displayed for the user to select.

To solve the problem, look at the web service's directive, not the code-behind or the ASMX designer.

 Do a right-mouse-click on the web service, in my case named AutoComplete.asmx, and open with Notepad if nothing else.

It showed:

<%@ WebService Language="vb" CodeBehind="AutoComplete.asmx.vb" Class="FORMERPROJECTNAME.AutoComplete" %>

I changed 'FORMERPROJECTNAME' to 'CURRENTPROJECTNAME', and it once again worked like a champ.

Thanks so much!  I'm embarrassed to admit that I spent 3 hours trying (unsuccessfully) to debug this on my project.  You hit the nail on the head.  I had also copied a working AutoComplete from another project, and apparently messed up when I renamed it.  The error is never reported -- it just fails to work.  I changed the project name and it fired right up.

 Thanks again,

.NET web services Vs Java Web Services
Hello, does anyone know of a book or good source of information that compares .NET and Java Web Services? (I would like soemthing neutral if possible). I am thinking of approaching this subject for my dissertation? Many Thanks Rob Hi Rob, Last year I had to give a powepoint presentation on Web Services.

.Net Web Service with pure ajax
I am trying to get my .net web service on 1 of my live servers to work with pure javascript ajax (I do not like MS components so Atlas/ASP.NET ajax is not what I am trying to do).  It really doesnt matter I suppose because its not just gethttprequest that fails also whats interesting is that if I hit the web service interactively and click on invoke it renders properly, however, if I copy and paste that url that just worked into a new tab it fails with:  InvalidOperationException: Request format is unrecognized for URL unexpectedly ending in '/getName'.   I have bee...

Can you return .net web controls in a .net page from a web service?
I've got a problem with a project. I've got to compile an entire .net page and return it as part of a Web Service for display. The problem I have is that I need to add WebControls and functionality to the page so that not only the html content and images are displayed (which I've managed) but that textboxes, labels, buttons and datasets can be displayed also. Essentially I need to make a call from one site for a page, populate the page and return it in a state as though it resided on the same server/webspace as the calling page. Code is currently built as follows into a string: strOpenHT...

web service call failed: 500 using ajax hovermenu and web service with ascx file
I am using a hovermenu extender on an image button. The hovemenu extender calls a web service and returns back information that I write to the panel that displays. A portion of the code is below. This works when the Page is an aspx page but when I move it to an ascx page I get web service call failed.

Converting Web Site to Web Application (AJAX web service goes missing)
I have just completed (almost) an exercise to convert a web site to a web app (acedemic reasons - just to see the differences).A few bumps on the road such as copying class files to the new solution and wondering for a while why the classes did not show up.  It was because the properties for the class file were "content" rather than "compile".  Also copied all my images to a newly created image folder outside the IDE.  There is no context menu item to refresh a folder in the Web App so it was out of the car and back in to fix that.One problem remains. ...
