v-autocomplete component offers simple and flexible type-ahead functionality. This is useful when searching large sets of data or even dynamically requesting information from an API.
The autocomplete component extends
v-select and adds the ability to filter items.
When using objects for the items prop, you must associate item-text and item-value with existing properties on your objects. These values are defaulted to text and value and can be changed.
Searching an API
Easily hook up dynamic data and create a unique experience. The
v-autocomplete's expansive prop list makes it easy to fine tune every aspect of the input.
Custom filter on autocomplete
filter prop can be used to filter each individual item with custom logic. In this example we filter items by name
You can use
dense prop to reduce autocomplete height and lower max height of list items.
With the power of slots, you can customize the visual output of the select. In this example we add a profile picture for both the chips and list items.
Sometimes you need to load data externally based upon a search query. Use the
search-input prop with the .sync modifier when using the
autocomplete prop. We also make use of the new
cache-items prop. This will keep a unique list of all items that have been passed to the
items prop and is REQUIRED when using asynchronous items and the multiple prop.
v-autocomplete component is extremely flexible and can fit in just about any use-case. Create custom displays for no-data, item and selection slots to provide a unique user experience. Using slots enables you to easily customize the desired look for your application.
Using a combination of
v-autocomplete slots and transitions, you can create a stylish toggleable autocomplete field such as this state selector.
