ContactAutoCompleteTextView is a view which allows the user to search across all his contacts to get email or phone number.
The thread to get the data is asynchronous, which allow the view to load very fast (without this, you can need 1 to 2 seconds for 1500 contacts).
- Test the stability of the lib and improve the lifecycles of it (cache data)
- Add the ability to have postal addresses
- Add the photo from all contact providers (not only from the local storage --> we want to have as many photos as in the native contact app).
- Test on other resolutions: XHDPI, XXHDPI, XXXHDPI (Please open issue, even if it works, to allow me to update the readme...)
- Write/Improve wiki
- Test the possibility of changing the adapter.
- Make a maven version.
- Write a demo app.
How does it work?
Lib available for Gradle:
And for Maven:
<dependency> <groupId>com.github.lolobosse.contactsautocompletetextview</groupId> <artifactId>library</artifactId> <version>0.1.2</version> <type>aar</type> </dependency>
