Import the framework, configure the textField and set the suggestionLabel and suggestionsContentView.

import DLSuggestionsTextField


  @IBOutlet weak var suggestionsTextField: TextField!
  private let suggestionsTableView = TableView()
  private let suggestionsLabel = UILabel()


  func viewDidload() {
    suggestionsTextField.suggestionLabel = suggestionsLabel
    suggestionsTextField.suggestionsContentView = suggestionsTableView

The framework client has to:

  • provide a suggestions content view - here sugestions should be placed;
  • (optional) provide a suggestion text view - here proposed selection is placed;
  • handle the filtering based on data from textField;
  • manage the content and text views.
