Frost

This library provides a useful widget class mimicking the behavior of edit texts in a web form, which retains the entered values in a local history and automatically suggests previously stored texts as soon as the user starts typing.

Download

Grab the latest version from Maven Central:

compile 'it.subito:frost-library:1.+'

Usage

The typical usage is to declare the widget directly into the layout XML file. For example:

<it.subito.frost.FrostTextView
    android:id="@+id/user_email"
    frost:key="user_email"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="wrap_content" />

The widget supports all the attributes of a MultiAutoCompleteTextView and a number of additional ones used to customize the specific behaviors in an easy and flexible way. Moreover, an even more advanced level of customization can be achieved by accessing the view programmatically through your Java code.

The widget makes use of a Persister to store and retrieve back the collected data associated with the specific view. In fact, the data are stored in separate collections identified by a unique key, thus enabling different views of the same kind (for example: a user name or address field) to share the same list of suggestions.

Customisation

Please see the Customisation page for more information on how to change the behaviour of the View.
