It's not the same user experience, but I think what you are after is
a popup, not a combo box. Presumably the user is using keyboard
navigation when they want to auto-complete. If they have full
navigation turned on, then they can hit the space bar to open the
menu, then type to auto-complete.
Barring that, you can install a kEventClassTextField/
kEventTextAccepted handler on the control and auto-complete with text
that is in the box. Then you can replace it with the closest match. I
don't know all the details of this approach so I can't really help
with that. I think the use of a Popup would generally be better however.
Reality is what, when you stop believing in it, doesn't go away.
Failure is not an option. It is a privilege reserved for those who try.
