Installation

  1. A recommended way to install ng2-typeahead is through the npm package manager using the following command:

npm i ng2-typeahead --save

Alternatively, you can download it in a ZIP file.

  1. Currently ng2-typeahead contains one directive: typeahead.

Example

my.component.ts
import { Typeahead } from 'ng2-typeahead';

@NgModule({
   declarations: [ Typeahead ],
})

@Component({
    selector: 'my-component',
    template: require('./my.component.html'),
    styles: [`
        .typeahead-input,
        .typeahead-typeahead{
            width: 250px;
            padding: 8px;
            border-radius: 5px;
        }
    `]
})
export class MyComponent {

  fruitName: string;
  fruits: any[] = [
    {
      id: 1,
      name: "Apple",
      searchText: "apple"
    },
    {
      id: 2,
      name: "Orange",
      searchText: "orange"
    },
    {
      id: 3,
      name: "Banana",
      searchText: "banana"
    }
  ];

  selectedFruit: any = this.fruits[0];

  public fruitSelected(fruit) {
    this.fruitName = fruit ? fruit.name : 'none';
  }

}
my.component.html
<typeahead
  [(ngModel)]="selectedFruit"
  [list]="fruits"
  [searchProperty]="'searchText'" [displayProperty]="'name'"
  [maxSuggestions]="2"
  (suggestionSelected)="fruitSelected($event)"
  placeholder="Begin typing a fruit">
</typeahead>

<p>You selected {{ fruitName }}</p>

The following adjustments may be required in systemjs.config.js to run the example code. Issue #7

var map = {
    ...
    'ng2-typeahead':              'node_modules/ng2-typeahead',                             
  };
  ...
  var packages = {
    ...
    'ng2-typeahead':              { main: 'ng2-typeahead.js', defaultExtension: 'js' }
  };
