Automating User Input

Is this going to be strictly an LC app or are you going to try and use the browser in LC? I have functions that "remember" things typed into a field, and auto-complete based on what the user types. The weakness is of course that if you have words that are very similar, especially at the beginning, you would need to type a lot before you ever got to the unique word you were looking for. 

I can modify the script so that hitting the right or left (up or down??) arrows will cycle through the matches.

This is to save the user from having to enter complex medical terms. If the user were to interact directly with the browser, they could press the tab key repeatedly to move from file to field, checkbox to checkbox etc. I'd like my app to do the same tabbing etc. instead of my user who could sit back and watch the form being completed interactively!
