Bootstrap Autocomplete Search

In this article, we will see how to create a bootstrap autocomplete. The Bootstrap Autocomplete component predicts the words being typed based on the first few letters given by the user. You can search the list using basic scroll and the keyboard arrows

A basic example of Bootstrap Autocomplete search

With our component you can easily add to autocomplete menu what you want.

You only need to add arrays in JavaScript with your variable and you have to initiate that variable with our JavaScript code.

For example:


<div class="md-form">
  <input type="search" id="form-autocomplete" class="form-control mdb-autocomplete">
  <button class="mdb-autocomplete-clear">
    <svg fill="#000000" height="24" viewBox="0 0 24 24" width="24" xmlns="">
      <path d="M19 6.41L17.59 5 12 10.59 6.41 5 5 6.41 10.59 12 5 17.59 6.41 19 12 13.41 17.59 19 19 17.59 13.41 12z" />
      <path d="M0 0h24v24H0z" fill="none" />
  <label for="form-autocomplete" class="active">What is your favorite US state?</label>
