Does anyone know of any publicly available Java code that will allow a User to type one or two letters into a text-box, and then see all items from a list that start with those letters appear in a "floating" box?

For instance if the list is as follows "cat, car, dog, ear"
and the user types 'C' in the text box then he will see the following:

_____________________
|C                                |
-----------------------------
    |Cat   |
    |Car   |
    --------
