Spinner with search option in android

Spinner with search option in android

Hello, Let's see the above example for your awesome dropdown list to search. Searchable Spinner is a dialog spinner with the search feature which allows you to search the items loaded in the spinner.

You have to use this Gradle library:

com.toptoche.searchablespinner:searchablespinnerlibrary:1.3.1

And, your calling should be like this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<RelativeLayout xmlns:android="http://schemas.android.com/apk/res/android"
    xmlns:tools="http://schemas.android.com/tools"
    android:layout_width="match_parent"
    android:layout_height="match_parent"
    android:id="@+id/main_layout"
    android:paddingBottom="@dimen/activity_vertical_margin"
    android:paddingLeft="@dimen/activity_horizontal_margin"
    android:paddingRight="@dimen/activity_horizontal_margin"
    android:paddingTop="@dimen/activity_vertical_margin"
    tools:context="com.legendblogs.asynctask.MainActivity">
    <com.toptoche.searchablespinnerlibrary.SearchableSpinner
        android:id="@+id/searchablespinner"
        android:layout_width="match_parent"
        android:layout_height="wrap_content"/>
</RelativeLayout>

In your MainActivity.java:

package com.legendblogs.demo;
import android.content.Context;
import android.support.v7.app.AppCompatActivity;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.view.WindowManager;
public class MainActivity extends AppCompatActivity {
    @Override
    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);
        List<String> searchablespinner_list = new ArrayList<String>();
        
        SearchableSpinner searchablespinner = (SearchableSpinner) findViewById(R.id.searchablespinner);
        searchablespinner_list.add("Samsung");
        searchablespinner_list.add("Nokia");
        searchablespinner_list.add("Moto");
        searchablespinner_list.add("Google");
        searchablespinner_list.add("HTC");
        searchablespinner_list.add("Leveno");
        searchablespinner_list.add("Dell");
        searchablespinner_list.add("Oppo");
        searchablespinner_list.add("Micromax");
        searchablespinner_list.add("Lg");
        searchablespinner_list.add("Oppo");
        searchablespinner.setAdapter(new ArrayAdapter<String>(this, android.R.layout.simple_spinner_dropdown_item, searchablespinner_list));
    }
}
