Installation

Carthage

Add the the following dependecy in your Cartfile.

github "davidlivadaru/DLSuggestionsTextField" ~> 2.0

CocoaPods

Add the the following dependecy in your Podfile.

pod 'DLSuggestionsTextField', '~> 2.0'

Swift Package Manager

Add the the following dependecy in your Package.swift.

dependencies: [
    .package(url: "https://github.com/davidlivadaru/DLSuggestionsTextField.git", .upToNextMinor(from: "2.0.0"))
]

Usage

Import the framework, configure the textField and set the suggestionLabel and suggestionsContentView.

import DLSuggestionsTextField

...

  @IBOutlet weak var suggestionsTextField: TextField!
  private let suggestionsTableView = TableView()
  private let suggestionsLabel = UILabel()

  ...

  func viewDidload() {
    ...
    suggestionsTextField.suggestionLabel = suggestionsLabel
    suggestionsTextField.suggestionsContentView = suggestionsTableView
  }

The framework client has to:

  • provide a suggestions content view - here sugestions should be placed;
  • (optional) provide a suggestion text view - here proposed selection is placed;
  • handle the filtering based on data from textField;
  • manage the content and text views.
