Drop down boxes

Recommended Posts

Can anyone help?I'm fairly new to html, I know how to construct select boxes (or drop down menus) but am trying to have it so its user interactive - for instance if in my very long list i have some of following words:AntApeApple . . . .orangepainpalacepartridgepearplantIf the user wanted to select "partridge", but rather than scrolling through the whole list typed "p" to bring to the first entry (pain), and then commenced to type type in the rest of the word, so next "a" and then "l" - how do i do this to prevent it from going back to selecting "Ant" when "a" is typed?Would be very grateful for any ideas?

I don't think you can't prevent that...I have just been trying your combo box : - If you type one letter after the other ('p' then 'a' then 'r' then 't'...) then you are linked to the letter 'p', then 'a', then 'r',...- Now if you write quickly 'partridge' it will link you to the word 'partridge'So just write it quickly :)

Hiya Thanks for your reply, i've tried this and it doesn't seem to work- whatever letter i type, no matter how fast, it automaticaly takes me to the first word in the list that starts with that letter......i remember seeing it somewhere before on a website (a long time ago) but unfortunately cant remember it.... any other suggestions?Vin

What exactly is the code you used? You probably have some mistake or a missing thing somewhere but I don't think anyone(especially I) would be able to assist you without you providing that code.I have wanted to make such a menu myself, so any suggestions would come in handy :) .
