    I would like for my autocomplete box to populate on focus and then filter down as the user types, essentially giving it a minlength of zero.  Just setting the minlength to 0 doesn't seem to do it.  I also tried using a combobox instead but it only makes a single web service call and then filters down the data from the call (instead of retrieving fresh data). 

    The reason that doesn't work for me is the resulting data can be anywhere from 0 to thousands, and my web service only returns the top 20 results, so I need to refreshing the datasource as the user types.  The autocomplete does this perfectly, but like I said I just can't get it to populate without any user input. 

    What do you recommend?

    I was not able to get this working so I am approaching it from another angle.  If I can get the menu to populate via a click then that is good enough.  I have the datasource refreshing, however the autocomplete still wont display any items if the box is blank (even if the datasource contains items).  I also noticed there is no .open() option.  Any suggestions?
