Typehead

Last updated 3 months ago

These are also know as auto-fill input boxes that fills up while you type. This is powered by Bootstrap type-head.

You can view there official documentation here

Step One

Include the required javascript files inside the <body> before core template script inclusions, if they are not there already.

<script src="assets/plugins/bootstrap-typehead/typeahead.bundle.min.js"></script>
<script src="assets/plugins/bootstrap-typehead/typeahead.jquery.min.js"></script>

Step Two

Create a simple text box field and give it an ID so you can initialize in your JS file

<div class="form-group">
<input class="typeahead form-control" id="mytyphead" type="text" placeholder="States of USA">
</div>
<form class="" role="form">
<div class="form-group form-group-default required typehead" id="sample-three">
<label>Countries</label>
<input class="typeahead form-control" id="mytyphead" type="text" placeholder="States of USA">
</div>
</form>

Step Three

Initialize your typehead with the ID you use

var countries = new Bloodhound({
datumTokenizer: Bloodhound.tokenizers.whitespace,
queryTokenizer: Bloodhound.tokenizers.whitespace,
prefetch: 'http://pages.revox.io/json/countries-list.json'
});
// passing in `null` for the `options` arguments will result in the default
// options being used
$('#mytyphead').typeahead(null, {
name: 'countries',
source: countries
});
