    I found the autoCompleteText function from controlsFX library a bit too slow, so I wrote this class. This class can be attached to any control, is very fast, and is based on the Levenshtein Distance algorithm.

    You can use the UP/DOWN arrows to select the text, then press ENTER to validate. If the text doesn't exist in the list, it will return the new text.

    Comment & critics welcomed!

    I'm not getting a scroll of the list with the up or down arrow keys.

    You need to download jReflection library and check it in the libraries tab.
