Filtered ValueList Based on Characters Typed

I'm working on a solution that is deployed via WebDirect. There is no way around that. The functionality I want is similar to something seen frequently in mobile apps.

 

What I want: You know how in Instagram (maybe other tools as well) when you start typing a hashtag, it gives you a filtered list of hashtags to select from? That's the type of functionality I am looking to create.

 

I have a list of "keywords" and I'm populating a join table via a portal and related records.  What I'd like is, as a person begins to type in the field Session_Keyword: Keyword, they get a valueless that filters based on the characters entered.

 

Is this just a matter of employing Type Ahead, or other FMPro tool? I found this discussion in my searching: https://community.filemaker.com/thread/107393. So, maybe e this is all I need to do, but thought I'd ask before I dug in.
