Typeahead remote

The pl.treksoft.kvision.form.text.TypeaheadRemoteInput component, contained in kvision-bootstrap-typeahead-remote module, is a special component you can use to render a typeahead text field with values loaded from the server. Unlike standard TypeaheadInput component (which can also load values from an AJAX source but needs a defined endpoint) TypeaheadRemoteInput is bound directly to the method of the remote service. The method signature looks like this:

interface IValueService {
suspend fun values(search: String?, state: String?): List<String>
}

The search parameter is send with the value entered by the user in the text field. It should be used to filter the returned list of values.

The state parameter allows you to send optional, additional data to the backend service, with the help of the stateFunction parameter of the TypeaheadRemoteInput constructor.

To use TypeaheadRemote form control, you initialize it with the ServiceManager instance and a callable reference to the right method.

TypeaheadRemote(serviceManager = ValueServiceManager,
function = IValueService::values,
stateFunction = { someState.toString() },
label = "Start typing to see appropriate values"
)
