Android AutoCompleteTextView

From WikiOD

Remarks[edit | edit source]

If you want to offer suggestions to the user when they type in an editable text field, you can use an AutoCompleteTextView. It provides suggestions automatically when the user is typing. The list of suggestions is displayed in a drop down menu from which the user can select one to replace the contents of the edit box.

Simple, hard-coded AutoCompleteTextView[edit | edit source]

Design (layout XML):

<AutoCompleteTextView
   android:id="@+id/autoCompleteTextView1"
   android:layout_width="wrap_content"
   android:layout_height="wrap_content"
   android:layout_alignParentTop="true"
   android:layout_centerHorizontal="true"
   android:layout_marginTop="65dp"
   android:ems="10" />

Find the view in code after setContentView() (or its fragment or custom view equivalent):

final AutoCompleteTextView myAutoCompleteTextView = 
    (AutoCompleteTextView) findViewById(R.id.autoCompleteTextView1);

Provide hard-coded data via an adapter:

String[] countries = getResources().getStringArray(R.array.list_of_countries);
ArrayAdapter<String> adapter = new ArrayAdapter<String>(this,android.R.layout.simple_list_item_1,countries);
myAutoCompleteTextView.setAdapter(adapter);

Tip: Though the preferred way would be to provide data via a Loader of some kind instead of a hard-coded list like this.
