Hi Rajesh,

Hi Rajesh,
You can put a look up filter into the Contact Look up field of your object for which you are implementing the Visualforce page like that,

Please keep in mind you need a look up field with relation to Account Object proior to develop this filter into your Contact look up field.

Now your visualforce page will be like this ,
<apex:page standardController="Custom_Object__c">
    <apex:form >
        <apex:inputField value="{!Custom_Object__c.Account__c}"/>
        <apex:inputField value="{!Custom_Object__c.Contact__c}"/>

And it is done. :)

<apex:form >
   <apex:inputtext id="Project1" value="{!accText }" onblur="functionvalidateProject();" >
                                    <c:autocompletecomp1 objectname="Apple__c"  searchField="Name" autocomplete_textbox="{!$Component.Project1}" />
                                    <apex:inputhidden value="{!acc.account_c}" id="Project1_lkid">
                                    <apex:actionSupport event="onchange" action="{!passProjectId}">
                                    <apex:param name="proId" value="{!}"/>
<apex:inputfield value="{!apple.Contact__c}"/>
</apex:form>   </apex:page>

public class Autopopulation {

 public apple__c apple{ get; set; }
    public String accText { get; set; }
        public Autopopulation(ApexPages.StandardController controller) { (apple) controller.getRecord();
         if( != NULL)
         apple=[SELECT id,Account__c,Contact__c FROM apple__c WHERE id = :apple.Id ];
         accText =apple.Id;           

     public PageReference passProjectId()
            String projectId = ApexPages.currentPage().getParameters().get('proId');
            return null;

Account and contacts are lookup in apple__c object.When i populate account through autocomplete how to populate account related contacts in contact lookup?

How can you auto populate contacts ? If an account has more than one Contact then which will be autopupolated ? However, your extension class has some compiler errors. It can't be save into system.
