+Summary: ComboBox keyboard selection
+Currently ComboBox behavior is not as easy to input values as that of MS.NET:
+- When ComboBox gets focus, on .NET it selectAlls the text so that just
+typing characters clears the value.
+- When DropDownStyle is DropDown, when we expand the drop down list, and
+when there is such an item that starts with the same character as that of
+current entry, its current entry will be lost and its selected text becomes
+the existing entry. The search is not limited to ASCII input.
+- When DropDownStyle is DropDownList, when we type characters it tries to
+find an entry from current item index that starts with the same character.
+Say, if there is an entry "Z" and when we type 'Z' in the ComboBox, its
+cursor simply moves there.
+using System;
+using System.Windows.Forms;
+public class Test : Form
+	public static void Main ()
+	{
+		Application.Run (new Test ());
+	}
+	public Test ()
+	{
+		ComboBox cb = new ComboBox ();
+		cb.DropDownStyle = ComboBoxStyle.DropDownList;
+		cb.DataSource = new string [] {"A", "B1", "B2", "C", "D", "D", "Z", "T1",
+"B3", "\u3042\u3044"};
+		Controls.Add (cb);
+	}
