Looping through Items

By default, you can select a DropDownList item by pressing a keyboard key. For example, if the DropDownList items are Foo, Bar, and Baz and the user presses the B letter key, based on the alphabetical order of the items, the keypress selects the first item which starts with a B.

The keyboard selection is available only if the filtering functionality is disabled.
