    Using the auto complete widget, is it possible to automatically highlight (but not select) the first item in the dropdownlist, but still allow the user to type into the textbox?

    Currently, when you type in the textbox and see the item you want as the first in the dropdownlist you have to hit the down arrow to select it, then tab to go to the next field. We'd like it to have that selected by default.
