I've been looking for a solution using coolite to get a 6000+ item combobox to work without clogging my page with json code. I looked at the custom search but the control example has changed since it was posted as an example and I also need it to go against a sql datasource to get my items. I also thought about using a pop-up, but I need to get the json off of the main page so I would need to build a seperate page for my look-up.

Any suggestions?
