Hi Hi

Just wanna find out whether the following is possible:
to have a drop down list with populated values, but when the user wants to
select a value, he can either type in the first few letters or select it
with the mouse or both. example: a drop down list has 10 values. the user
clicks on the drop down and it allows him to type in the box or select the
value from the drop down, but if he type "A" it will just to all the values
starting with "A" and if he continues to type "Al" it will further goto all
the values that start with "Al" e.g. "Alex" and "Albert".

If this is possible, how do i go about doing this? Sorry i know my
explanation may have been confusing, but thanks!
Jason

There is no such control available in the HTML world.
So the only way to do it is to fake it with javascript & such.
Here's a free control that does exactly that:
