    Is there any way to add an AutoCompleteTextView in a UITableViewCell in a way that when suggestions view is displayed is added on the top view stack (hidding other UITableViewCells of the table?

    Any sample app were I could start working with?

    Hi Miguel,

    The suggestionView of the TKAutoCompleteTextView can be attached to any visual element in your view hierarchy not only to the autocomplete itself. For example you can attach it as a child to the cell itself or the whole tableview.
    You can consider applying this approach to your project.
    You should set the suggestionViewOutOfFrame and then set new frame and parent to the suggestionView. Consider the following snippet from the customization example.
      self.autocomplete.suggestionViewOutOfFrame = YES;
    _listView = (TKListView*)self.autocomplete.suggestionView;
        _listView.frame = CGRectMake(10, self.view.bounds.origin.y + 50, self.view.bounds.size.width - 20, self.view.bounds.size.height - (15 + self.autocomplete.bounds.size.height));
        _listView.autoresizingMask = UIViewAutoresizingFlexibleWidth | UIViewAutoresizingFlexibleHeight ;
        [_listView removeFromSuperview];
        [self.view addSubview:_listView];

    For guidance you can check out our sdk examples, here is link to our autocomplete customization example.
