[Pharo-users] Text Field With Entry Completion Via Tab

With all the new tools - Spec, Brick, Tx, etc - what is the easiest way to do
this in Pharo 4.0? I don't have a preference for the tool as long is it
works in Morphic.

My naive attempt failed:

applicants := PaPerson list collect: #name.
	entryCompletion := EntryCompletion new
		dataSourceBlock: [ :currText | applicants ];
		filterBlock: [ :currApplicant :currText | currApplicant asUppercase
includesSubstring: currText asString asUppercase ].
TextInputFieldModel new
	acceptOnCR: false;
	entryCompletion: entryCompletion;
openWithSpec.

The completion menu appears, but is seems you can only accept the selected
completion via the mouse - yuck!

Thanks.

Cheers,
Sean
