KeyStrokes searching combobox

This is probably very easy.  I prepopulate a combox of values.  The user can select the value that they want.  Is it possible to make the combobox behave like an html combobox?  What i mean is when I hit a key while the combobox has focus it finds the first value in the combobox?

Example:
Values prepopulated of states combobox
AK
AZ
CA
CO
DE

when the user hits the key 'A' it highlights 'AK', then if they hit 'A' again it highlights 'AZ'.

Does this make sense?

Change the style to "2-Dropdown List" to get that effect, although then the user can't enter things that are not in the list (which may be what you want anyway.)
