Scrolling directly to record in my Portal List using the first few letters
In a previous post, i was shown how to create a Listbox using a Portal. By selecting an item in the list, I am now able to display values associated with that selected item.
This list contains thousands of records.
Suppose my listbox contains a list of every name in the world. How can I type the frst few letters of a name that i am searching for and be able to scroll to the first occorrence of that name. At that point, I would retrieve the values of that record.
For example, I start typing M and the fisrt name beginning with M will be the currently selected item. If I then type i, the first name beginning with Mi will be slected and so on.
