Auto Search

Add a simple Auto Completing TextFeild to you project to spice up the user experience.

A much more easier way to add create an auto search field

Creating it is as simple as

    List<String> listOfNames = ['Sample', 'Sample2', 'Sample3', ...so on];

    AutoSearchInput(
        data: listOfNames,                    
        maxElementsToDisplay: 10,
        onItemTap: (int index) {
          //Do something cool
        }
    )

It also has some of the TextField controls that would help you have a much more fine grained controls over the search field

Following are the properties that you can work with:

  • data -> @Required
  • maxElementsToDisplay -> @Required
  • onItemTap -> @Required
  • selectedTextColor
  • unSelectedTextColor
  • enabledBorderColor
  • disabledBorderColor
  • focusedBorderColor
  • cursorColor
  • borderRadius (Default value = 10.0)
  • fontSize (Default value = 20.0)
  • singleItemHeight (Default value = 40.0)
  • itemsShownAtStart (Default value = 10)
  • hintText (Default vallue = 'Enter a name')
  • autoCorrect (Default vallue = true)
  • enabled (Default vallue = true)
  • onSubmitted
  • onEditingComplete

Let's have a look at the complete Example Widget

class HomePage extends StatelessWidget {
  final List<String> names = [
    "Ayden Ram",
    "Rowan Trevon",
    "Garrison Faisal",
    "Bridie Ford",
    "Rameel Xavier",
    "Abriel Yestin",
    "Cal Heston",
    "Ryland Nick",
    "Orson Kaylen",
  ];

  @override
  Widget build(BuildContext context) {
    return Container(
      padding: const EdgeInsets.all(20.0),
      child: AutoSearchInput(
        data: names, 
        maxElementsToDisplay: 10,
        onItemTap: (int index) {
          //Do something cool
        }
      ),
    );
  }
}

Want to add custom logic when the items are tapped?

The onItemTap function lets you add custom logic. It contains index as an argument which is basically the index of the item from the original data array which is passed.
