Autocomplete dropdown in React Native

Hi, I am trying to build an autocomplete dropdown Text Input in react native and really not grasping the concept. I have tried to read through the code that maxkordiyak provided on github, but it leaves me puzzled. Is there anyone versed enough in react native to help me understand? I do not get what the api is used for and want to avoid that in my code - all i need is to offer the user a „live as you type“ autocomplete dropdown menu from an array of strings.

First of all, do you know how to do that with vanilla JavaScript?

0 yes - this is what i am looking for



thanks Gordon, but I still fail bringing it to life in React Native. Am I missing something obvious in the discussion you refer to that helps with that functionality in React Native?
