Worth reading

I was trying to look for code that allows you to type in a dropdown menu and as you type the correct item is listed. The typical dropdown allows you to type the first character (I am in Minnesota and I have to hit 'M' 5 times to get to my state) and repeat it until you get to the name on the list you want. I couldn't find any code that allow you to type in the name you want and have it show in the drop down (for Minnesota you would type 'M' and Maine would come up. Then you type 'I' and Michigan would come up. Then when you type 'N' Minnesota would come up). I know some fat clients do this, but I have never seen it on a browser. Since I didn't find code on your site, I made my own code to do this. The reason I am writing is if you do not have code to do this, I would like to send you mine and don't know how to submit it. We have these things called RoutingID's and there can be as many as 100 or more in a drop down. We wanted to make it so a user can just type the name if they know it and it will scroll to the name as they type the characters. An array is created when the page loads and is kept on the client side. This way we don't have to access the database searching for 100 or more RoutingID's each time a user wants to use them. Anyway, let me know if you are interested and let me know how people send you code.

Thank You,
