I have list component with 800 data items. I want to filter the data as the user type on keyboard.

e.g if the user press letter "A" I want to filter the list data to only starting with A.

Any help on this?

Thanks

* The dataprovider of your list is an ArrayCollection (of 800 items)
* Apply a filter function to that ArrayCollection.

I would start with a TextInput field where you can type in characters.

myCollection.filterFunction = myFilterFunction;
myCollection.refresh();

with

protected function myFilterFunction(obj:Object):Boolean {
      // here you return only true in case the first x characters equal the x characters typed in in your text field
}
