I am working with the content proposal adapter provided by eclipse.jface.fieldassist package and I have the need
to be able to accept the selected content when pressing TAB, then traverse to next control in my GUI. However
I do not get this to work with the given

Is there any other component one can use for "autocomplete" functionality which could support this behaviour?

If not, could one do change-request for this or contribute a solution to this issue?

Also looking in to the code of this class mentioned, there seem to be a bug in the listener handling an arrow key
event. The selection in the list can be incremented/decremented with 2 instead of 1. Looks like the listener can
see and do increment/decrement selection action for 2 of the following modify, key-down and traverse events.

Regards Jonas
