The client needs to select a vendor from a drop down list (Select). The list is quite long, so it takes some time to load and scroll. It would be better if there was a way for the client to type in the first few letters of the name and press enter. This list would then filter only those vendor names starting with the typed value.
I am using a Select Tag for showing the drop down list. This, of course, is not supporting the requirement. Is there a way for select to act like what is required ? Like a drop-down combo instead of a drop-down list ?
I would prefer not to use any ActiveX controls as such, as some of the users have disabled ActiveX in their browsers and the page might fail.
