The autocomplete

Method 1-Using the control panel.

  1. Go to your google custom search control panel.
  2. Go to Search features->autocomplete->Enable autocomplete.custom search autocomplete

Method 2- Editing the google custom search code

In the google custom search code, replace



<gcse:search enableAutoComplete="true"></gcse:search>

For example-

  (function() {
    var cx = '003606982592251140240:5xbiwoxb3m0';
    var gcse = document.createElement('script');
    gcse.type = 'text/javascript';
    gcse.async = true;
    gcse.src = 'https://cse.google.com/cse.js?cx=' + cx;
    var s = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0];
    s.parentNode.insertBefore(gcse, s);
<gcse:search enableAutoComplete="true"></gcse:search>


This will enable autocomplete.custom search autocomplete
