Hi all,
My application interface uses Apache Cocoon , XML, XSL. (J2EE on server side) . I have a pull down menu which presents a long list of items, where, as usual, a user clicks on a character and the focus goes to the first word that begins with that letter. My user now put in a requirement where he wants to enter 2 characters and the focus would go to the first word with that begins with those 2 letters. Anyone knows of a script, or xsl kind of ready made component that would help me achieve this functionality?

thx

No replies to my post ...
I wonder if my question is really stupid and out of scope or it�s just in the wrong forum...

You might want to ask the question in the HTML/JavaScript forum (assuming that your Cocoon components are eventually generating web pages).

Oh, and I would not mention anything about Cocoon since your need is not really Cocoon-specific.
 
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
