SocialMentionAutoComplete

Android EditText for searching and mentioning user from a source

This Project contains SocialMentionAutoComplete for searching and highlighting a string in edit text from a data source.

Usage

 <SocialMentionAutoComplete
        android:id="@+id/multiAutoCompleteTextView"
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="200dp"
        android:layout_marginEnd="8dp"
        android:inputType="textShortMessage"
        android:layout_marginStart="8dp"
        android:layout_marginTop="8dp"/>

Get the processed text from the view by using

  MentionAutoCompleteAdapter  multiAutoCompleteTextView = findViewById(R.id.multiAutoCompleteTextView);
  Log.d("mention string", " This is output " + multiAutoCompleteTextView.getProcessedString());
