[SOLVED] positioning in dropdownlist with entered characters

When typing a character, a dropdown will position on the first item which is starting with this character.

Is it also possible to position on more then one character.
F.e. Typing "at", should go to items starting with "at", instead of (my current result) positioning on the first items starting with a "t"

Not by default - this is a limitation of browser functionality and connot be controlled using WebFOCUS. The answer may lay by using JavaScript, but then that question is for another forum.

This is a question that has been asked many times about browsers, there is a solution, as Tony eludes to with javascript.

The general process is to have your dropdown list and an input box. Javascript is used to check the list for the characters types into the input box and position the list.

I would suggest looking for this in google, there are many examples.

I find it strange to add a javascript!

Just discovered that it works (without any mod's) in Mozilla Firefox,
a pitty that IE6 is our "company-standard" browser.
