Hi micah,

Check you didn't assign WebMethod attribute to the method in code behind. Your code should be like below.

[System.Web.Services.WebMethod]
public static string[] GetNames(string prefix)
{
}

Also You need to assign the ServiceMethod to the AutoCompleteExtender.

Change like this.

<asp:AutoCompleteExtender runat="server" ServiceMethod="GetNames" DelimiterCharacters="" Enabled="True" TargetControlID="txtSearch" ID="txtSearch_AutoCompleteExtender"></asp:AutoCompleteExtender>
