I guess you mean a file browser window? This is not related to skins so I moved it.

CEGUI doesn't have anything like this stock. CEGUI also doesn't have capabilities to search the filesystem using it's ResourceProvider interface. That is all by design! You can make such a window yourself using your engine's capabilities. I think if someone makes such a window and it's a good piece of code, it can be hosted as an addon project (if it exposes some interface you can plug your engine's VFS into), however nothing like that exists at this point AFAIK.

Is there a utility related to this for searching through a list of strings by partial match and displaying them? (Like how firefox displays your history when you type a fragment into the address bar)

AFAIK we don't have auto complete editbox but it should be fairly easy to add.
