Hi. I'm using igxAutocomplete and I'm in need of text competition, something like this:
It shows a preview of the first item at the dropdown in the input and if you use the right arrow key it should select that item
Is this possible in autocomplete feature ?
Thank you for posting on our forums.
The mentioned behavior is possible and currently implemented by default with the 'Enter' Key. More about autocomplete navigation can be read on our website here:
If you are looking to modify it, please note that this is feature of igx-dropdown, and you can access all triggered events with the navigation directive. More information here:
If you have any additional questions, please let me know.

Thanks Tihomir TonevI get what you say, but what I need is a kind of inline text completion as shown in the picture attached.
i.e. As I type 'lo', the input would show 'ndon' which is the rest of the word of the first item in the dropdown
This without pressing ENTER, just by typing.
So, is there a way to do this with the igxAutocomplete directive?
Thank you for your e-mail.
Currently autofill(I believe this is what you are looking for), is not available out of the box from the Autocomplete directive. You can submit a feature request in our GitHub repository here:
I will be investigating this further as I am uncertain if this is possible on application level, so should succeed in integrating it, I will post an update to this thread.
In case you have any questions, please let me know.
