I want to make a edible combo box to search the list as user starts to type. In this way, the user will know what is available in the list as he/she types. It is going to be a very long list, so I don't want the user click on the drop down arrow to look for it. Thanks in advance.

For example as user starts to type R in the text field, the drop down list will show

Ran
Rani
Raw
Rock

I find that no matter what you do to a combobox, it still tastes pretty bad. (Sorry, just couldn't leave this one alone! )
