    Is there a way to hold off on querying the server until the user has, for example, typed at least 3 or 4 characters? If you have a large resultset to query against, and the user types several characters, won't the control try to make a round trip to the server on each key stroke?

    Hi Darren,

    You can handle the  OnClientRequesting event as is described in this help article.
