Yes. It's also on the Gambas Farm. Choose "All Software", check "Show filters", and enter "comboseek" as a filter.

It has quite a few lines of code. I haven't taken a close look at it so I don't know if it could be condensed any. But, it 
should give some good ideas.

I like how it highlights the closest matching item in the drop-down list (ie. the popup).
