I don't see any difficulty (?)
Your input object will have a callback, whose job is to deselect browser
(using fl_deselect_browser) and to select the proper line (fl_select_browser_line)
and of course make it visible (using fl_set_browser_topline). Don't confuse your
self with mouse events -you don't need them-. If the user clicks a line in
the browser, then the browser object callback is called, not the input's callback.
The user can either select a line from the browser (the object returns and you can
do whatever you want with this line ..) or type, where the input's object callback
selects the proper line in the browser. If the user wants can select another line!
I can't find a problem here. (I suppose i have understood your point. If not, please
ask me again...)
