# Autocompletes

The 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.

# Usage

The autocomplete component extends v-select and adds the ability to filter items.


# Caveats

# Examples

Below is a collection of simple to complex examples.

# Props

# Dense

You can use dense prop to reduce autocomplete height and lower max height of list items.

# Filter

The filter prop can be used to filter each individual item with custom logic. In this example we filter items by name.

# Slots

# Item and selection

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.

# Misc

# Asynchronous 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.

# Cryptocurrency selector

The 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.

# State selector

Using a combination of v-autocomplete slots and transitions, you can create a stylish toggleable autocomplete field such as this state selector.
