Is it possible to create a dynamically sorting drop down list
Posted on 2005-05-08
Hello out there (and happy mother's day where appropriate!).
I am trying to create a dynamically and alphanetically sorted drop-down list that contains a list of properties (addresses) in the island where I live (Barbados).
The default drop list in html takes you to the begining of the list of addresses that begin with the first letter that you type into the list input control (say K - for King Street).
Of course however when you type the next letter ( "i") it then takes you to the top of the "i" list.
I realize that if you keep pressing "k" or the down arrown it keeps on going through the K entries. And this is fine for, say, countries - which are small in number for each letter. This unfortunately is impracticable for addresses.
Can anyone tell me how to create the dynamic list that I'm looking or and alternative solution that may equally solve my dilemma?
Many thanks in advance for all of your usual kind assistance.
