Have to you had a look at the "Linked List" example jslinkedlist.lbs in the
I think that does what you are looking for.

Kind regards

Subject: O$: JS client: Combo box keypress events

Hi all,

Doing some JavaScript client development and I want to have an entry field
that when you type characters, populates a list with possible matches. This
would appear to be an ideal candidate for a combo box, however that control
doesn't have keypress events so you are constrained to waiting for the user
to leave the field?

I've got a solution of sorts using a combination of an entry field and
separate list field, but surely this should be easier to do?
