I'm relatively new to Flex (I've only been working with it
for about 6 months now), so it is entirely a possibility that the
following may not be realistic.
With that in mind, here is what I am curious about - would it
be possible to customize a TextInput control to sort of auto drop
down as the user types in information? Like how Google works - you
type in the first few letters of your search and the little box
appears below the input region with some of the most common
searches starting with those letters.
Right now, I basically have a TextInput control above a List
control. The List control's data source is an ArrayCollection whose
filterFunction is pointed at the TextInput's text property. That
works great, but I guess we are sort of looking for something with
a little more pizazz!
Any help or advice would be much appreciated (even if that
means telling me this is crazy/impossible!)
