Autocomplete listbox

Hi Experts,
    I'm fairly new to and I would like to provide an autocomplete-style search capability in a listbox that has hundreds of items in it.  The web listbox control's default behavior navigates the listbox by the first letter only, which in this case is insufficient.  
    I thought to use a textbox, and then findstring with the listbox - and that's when I discovered that the web control listbox doesn't have findstring.

    Does anyone know another (preferably quick to implement) method?

Thanks in advance!

Javascript will be your only way of doing this......

and no it's not particularly easy....  

You'd have to create a textbox and then a listbox next to it, and then on the onChange property of the textbox, filter the listbox depending on what has been entered in the textbox.

Thank you!

Wish there was an easier way but I guess I'll just have to bite the bullet...

Much appreciated,
