Autocomplete

Bootstrap Autocomplete

Bootstrap autocomplete is a component which predicts the words basing on the first few letters given by a user, while one is typing it.


Basic example MDB Pro component

With our component you can easily add to autocomplete menu what you want.

You only need to add arrays in JavaScript with your variable and you have to initiate that variable with our JavaScript code.

For example:



        <div class="md-form">
          <input type="search" id="form-autocomplete" class="form-control mdb-autocomplete">
          <button class="mdb-autocomplete-clear">
            <svg fill="#000000" height="24" viewBox="0 0 24 24" width="24" xmlns="https://www.w3.org/2000/svg">
              <path d="M19 6.41L17.59 5 12 10.59 6.41 5 5 6.41 10.59 12 5 17.59 6.41 19 12 13.41 17.59 19 19 17.59 13.41 12z" />
              <path d="M0 0h24v24H0z" fill="none" />
            </svg>
          </button>
          <label for="form-autocomplete" class="active">What is your favorite US state?</label>
        </div>

      


        var states = [
        "Alabama",
        "Alaska",
        "Arizona",
        "Arkansas",
        "California",

Map of dependencies of SCSS files in MDBootstrap:


    Legend:

    '-->' means 'required'

    All free and pro files require files from 'core' catalog

    'none' means 'this component doesn't require anything except core files'

    A file wrapped by `< >` means that this file make the base component prettier but it isn't necessary for the proper working

    All PRO components require 'pro/_variables.scss' file
