By default, when you want to add an item (order line) in a sale order, there is a popup where you choose the product by searching and viewing the results in a drop down.

I have a request that the user should be able to choose the product for that field from a full searchable product list that will show up in a new window or in a pop up.

For example, I would like to see a pop up list like the one you see in the products list from where I would select a product by just clicking one from the list.

Where should I start from to implement somethinng like this?

I should have tested with more products. I just started with openERP and had only a few products. So the 'Search More...' option didn't show up.

This is already possible:

Instruct users to:

1) Click the arrow at the right of the dropdown

2) select Search More....

This opens a popup with all products and a full functional search box.
