ng-Autocomplete

A simple directive for adding google places autocomplete to a textbox element.

Updated to now use ng-model, should work much better in forms. Can now set an initial value using ng-model. Using the ng-model to set the textbox value does not trigger the autocomplete query.

Tested with angularjs-1.2.4

Uses optional directive parameters, so it won't work with <1.2. If people are interested I'll release a <1.2 version.

Examples

Usage

Include the required libraries

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://maps.googleapis.com/maps/api/js?libraries=places&sensor=false"></script>

Declare a dependency on the ngAutocomplete module

var app = angular.module('myModule', ['ngAutocomplete']);

Add the directive to a textbox

    <input type="text"  ng-autocomplete ng-model="autocomplete" options="options" details="details"/>
