Scroll List Layout by Keystroke

I have a typical list layout, showing many records, and I'd like to be able to jump to a point in the list by tapping that record's first letter. This seems like a common feature request.


In MS Access, I would turn on KeyPreview for the form and hook into the form's KeyPress event, scrolling the list. So here's my 2 questions:


1: How can I accomplish this in FMP? (note, there are no actual fields on this list layout to land on, just <<fields>>)


2: If I can do this, how would I scroll to that letter in the list without necessarily making the first record of that letter the active record? I know I can scroll window to the active record, but is there any way to scroll the window to the desired record WITHOUT making it active? ** This question is of lesser importance, as I will make that record active if necessary **
