Auto fill in form element

P: n/a

Hi,

I was wondering if someone can point me to a site with form elements where
I might find something that would autofill in a text box or a drop dropdown
menu. My issue is lists of names, sometimes almost 2,000. We are looking
for a shortcut to a traditional dropdown which only allows us to enter the
first letter and then we have to scroll. I need to quicken the process by
allowing the data entry person to start entering letters until they get the
name they wanted.

Regards,
Fox

Autocomplete select box ("dropdown menu")
Note that 2000+ entries in a select box is pretty awkward and may lead to
performance issues and/or browser crashes. Here are some pointers:
