Guillermo Rauch set out to build something similar and he did a very good job of mimicking this behavior using MooTools v1.2:
I created my own, MooTools 1.2 compatible, in just 5kb. Itâ€™s not only small, but also really frexible! Here are some notes of the creation process and how to implement it in your own projects.
This is the Prototype version of the extended script by Guillermo Rauch. As with the previous script, this script has been converted and operates like the original. An extended and upgraded version will be posted later on this week, if you have any comments or requests, please post them and I will try to include all the requested features in the upcoming Proto release.
This is a very nice variation of the autocomplete metaphor and MooTools and Prototype developers can now leverage this enhanced functionality.
