JComboBox that reduces list with typing

I need an editable JComboBox that reduces its list of options as a user types in text. If you type "blah" into the textfield of the JComboBox, it will drop down its list and display only those list items that begin with "blah". I want something that works like the Address (URL) textfield in Internet Explorer.
Does anyone know where I can find code that does this?
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
