    I'm trying to add the autoCompleteTextView to my nativescript angular app, using the code from the angular demo github.

     

    However, when i type in a letter in the textbox i'm getting the following error:

     

    Error: Expecting a valid View instance.
    in file /tns-core-modules/ui/core/view-base/view-base.js, line: 409, column 12

     

    When i try to trace back the issue, it seems that this line returns undefined:

    var view = this.owner.getViewForViewType(commonModule.AutoCompleteViewTypes.ItemView);

    (autocomplete.js, line 66)

     

     

    It seems this guy has the same problem, but unfortunetly no answer:

    Thank you in advance!

    I hate to say this, but I solved my problem without finding out what was wrong. 

    (I made a mistake with GIT, i accidentally deleted my code i did not commit yet. git reset -hard HEAD is a very powerful command)

    However, when I repeated the steps from the tutorial i didn't get the same error anymore, but everything worked like expected.
