    I can change the suggestion view background color by calling

    self.autoCompleteTextView.suggestionView?.backgroundColor = UIColor.lightGrayColor()


    But the suggestion cells (?) remain white (see image attached below). I would like to change the appearance of these cells (font and background). How can i do that?.

    Hello Armando,

    Thanks for writing.

    You could use the `settings` property exposed by TKDataSource. It accepts an object of type `TKDataSourceSettings` which in return exposes the `collectionView` property. This property accepts an instance of type `TKDataSourceCollectionViewSettings`. The `TKDataSourceAutoCompleteSettings` class has two methods:

     The settings that can be customized when using TKDataSource with UICollectionView.
    @interface TKDataSourceCollectionViewSettings : NSObject
     Defines a block function that is called when creating a new cell in UICollectionView. TKCollectionViewCell is used by default.
     @param cellIdForItem The block function that will be called when creating a new cell.
    - (void)createCell:(TKDataSourceCollectionViewSettings_CreatrCellBlock __nonnull)cellIdForItem;
     Defines a block function that is called when initializing the cell properties.
     @param initCellWithItem The block function that will be called when initializing a new cell.
    - (void)initCell:(TKDataSourceCollectionViewSettings_InitCellWithItemBlock __nonnull)initCellWithItem;

    You can inherit from this class, override the methods and use them to style your cells. You will need to assign your custom implementation to the `collectionView` property of the TKDataSourceSettings object assigned to the TKDataSource instance you are using TKAutoCompleteTextView with.

    I hope this helps.
