Autofill text field with stored db results? - ASP Database

Currently, Im using a populated select box containing a list of customers. I would like to instead have a textbox in which the user would type in the first few letters of the customer name and it would autofill with the full customer name - without reloading the page. Any way to do this? Actually - at one point I ran across a type of custom text/select combo field where the user could either type a name or click a button to trigger a pulldown list, but I cannot locate it. Anyone see anything like this?...

    In .NET it's probably not that hard, and you coudl use XML and
    possibly DHTML to accomplish this, but it's not a simple thing in just
    ASP. You can use some Javascript trickery to move to a line in a
    drop-down selection as well, but that's a client-side/Javascript
    question.
