  • Type Less, Type Faster

    With AutoCompleteTextView implemented in your app your end-users can type faster. The control gives them suggestions, based on the characters they’ve already typed. This is useful in various situations such as choosing from a list of airports or a list of known recipients. On top of that AutoCompleteTextView allows for choosing not just one, but several items. These items are called tokens and enable scenarios like sending a message to multiple recipients.



  • Null-text and Close button

    Thanks to the null-text support, the end-users can easily understand what input is expected from them. They can easily dismiss any selected items with the close button.

  • Suggest, Append or Both

    Depending on your preference, AutoCompleteTextView can only append the remaining of the suggested word without opening any popups with lists of items. Or, it can suggest an item from the filtered list of items that appear. iit can also append the remaining of the word and open a list of suggestions at the same time.


  • Filter by StartsWith or Contains

    The control can provide suggestions which start with or contain the typed characters. You can control this behavior with a single property.

  • Tokens Support

    With AutoCompleteTextView you are allowed to search for and select several items in one control. These items appear as tokens that you can easily dismiss/deselect using their close button. The tokens also provide convenient API allowing for easy customization of their styles, adding an image etc. The tokens are useful for selecting multiple items like tags or email recipients.
