Need 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 from the drop down list 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".
Browsers already support that, unless you actually want an Ajaxified version that pulls data from the server side while typing.

Thanks for the update.
So, i need an example for this (not the browser supporting feature).
