I am using Webfocus Developer Studio Version 7.1 and HTML Layout Painter.
the HTML Layout Painter contains a text box and a Listbox. when the user enters a value in the text box, all the data which contains that value should be fetched from the database or the FEX file and gets populated in the listbox which is present in the HTML Layout Painter.
i.e. for example when the user type "le"(employee name) in the text box the listBox should get populated with all those employee names that contains "le".

You can't link (within the layout tool) a text box and a list box. The way we had addressed this programmatically is that when a user enters data in the text box, they actually submit the job which runs a fex to gather the appropriate values for the list box and holds them in proper HTML format for list box contents. The same fex also contains a -HTMLFORM which then contains the HTML syntax to include the list box contents - !IBI.FIL.holdfilename
