How to implement custom autocomplete text feature in native app? The data for autocomplete suggestions will be fetched from an entity. It can be considered a dictionary to look up for words. User should be able to type in a text box and when he types a similar word (present in the list of objects stored in database), that word should be suggested as autocomplete text. I don’t want to use dropdowns for suggested selections or anything like that. Just plain text area for typing and getting suggestions as you go.
