how do we give the java script to prompt the text to be entered.
What I mean is that,I have a set of names and when I enter the first letter the names starting with that letter should be viewed and the second letter and so on..
If anybody knows how to do it please help...

It is normally call JavaScript autocomplete and is normally done with Ajax is the list of available options is very large.

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
