I would like to allow users to be able to select a comment from a list of previously saved comments or be able to type in a new one. I would like a control that does that of a DropDownList but adds in a TextBox. Any ideas?

It already exist.. create a ComboBox control and set DropDownStyle to DropDown

In that case.. using ajax and combining textBox with ListBox you can do something fancy like this:

it has another use in that page..but would be just a little different for what you want (and the fade out is really nice :D )
