Autocomplete

<k-autocomplete>

The Autocomplete component can be wrapped around any form of input to get an flexible starting point to provide an real-time autocomplete dropdown. We use it for our TagsInput component.

<template>
  <k-autocomplete ref="autocomplete" :options="options" @select="select">
    <input type="text" @input="$refs.autocomplete.search($event.target.value)" />
  </k-autocomplete>
</template>

<script>
export default {
  data() {
    return {
      options: [
        {value: "a", text: "Option A"},
        {value: "b", text: "Option B"},
        {value: "c", text: "Option C"},
      ]
    }
  },
  methods: {
    select(item) {
      console.log(item);
    }
  }
}
</script>
