Usage


// Initializing `AutoCompleteTextField` 
let myTextField = AutoCompleteTextField(frame: CGRect(x: 20, y: 64, width: view.frame.width - 40, height: 40), dataSource: `YourDataSource`, delegate: `YourDelegate`)

// Setting `dataSource`, it can be set from the XCode IB like `TextFieldDelegate` in which will appear as `actfDataSource`
myTextField.dataSource = `YourDataSource`

// Setting delimiter (optional). If set, it will only look for suggestion after the delimiter
myTextField.setDelimiter("@")

// Show `AutoCompleteButton`
myTextField.showAutoCompleteButtonWithImage(UIImage(named: "checked"), viewMode: .whileEditing)

// Providing data source to get the suggestion from inputs
func autoCompleteTextFieldDataSource(_ autoCompleteTextField: AutoCompleteTextField) -> [ACTFWeightedDomain] {

    return weightedDomains // AutoCompleteTextField.domainNames // [ACTFDomain(text: "gmail.com", weight: 0), ACTFDomain(text: "hotmail.com", weight: 0), ACTFDomain(text: "domain.net", weight: 0)]
}

ACTFDomain

ACTFDomain is struct type that conforms to the Codable. User can store and retrieve smart domains.

One example may be 'gmail.com' and 'georgetown.edu'. Users are more likely to have a 'gmail.com' account so we would want that to show up before 'georgetown.edu', even though that is out of alphabetical order.

ACTFDomain is sorted based on its usage.

This is just one example. Manually providing a suggestion gives more flexibility and does not force the usage of an array of strings.


// Usage
let g1 = ACTFDomain(text: "gmail.com", weight: 10)
let g2 = ACTFDomain(text: "googlemail.com", weight: 5)
let g3 = ACTFDomain(text: "google.com", weight: 4)
let g4 = ACTFDomain(text: "georgetown.edu", weight: 1)

let weightedDomains = [g1, g2, g3, g4] // [ACTFDomain]

// Storing

// store single
if g1.storeDomainForKey("Domain") {
    print("Store success")
}

// store multiple
if ACTFDomain.storeDomainsForKey(domains: weightedDomains, key: "Domains") {
    print("Store success")
}

// retrieved single
if let domain = ACTFDomain.retrievedDomainForKey("Domain") {
    print("Retrieved: ", domain)
}

// retrieved multiple
if let domains = ACTFDomain.retrievedDomainsForKey("Domains") {
    print("Retrieved: ", domains)
}
