Simple code for a combo drop down form

I am trying to code a drop down box that allows you to input text in it (like the internet explorer address box) in JavaScript or DHTML....how would i do that?

(this image is somewhat like this)

however, i would like the user to be able to submit text that is not in the drop down list.  Is it possible?

thanks in advance for your comments

"Is it possible?"

Of course! Anything is possible...just takes $$$. I've researched this one for myself and it's actually a little complicated and probably worth paying for.  I have another example of an asp.net search engine that does the same as below but I can't find it in my bookmarks.

See: http://developer.ebusiness-apps.com/technologies/webdevelopment/codeandcomponents/eba-web-combobox-v2/productdemos/comboboxdemo.asp

I'd be interested if someone know of a freebie!

I can not find the code and post for you. but sure it is simple....

try to check out dropdown menu.
then you just put your textbox in your form also next to that textbox you put small image and do the onclick to that image dropdown the value ... that's all you can do.


good luck
