The Autocomplete textbox is used for providing a suggestion when we are typing into the input box (text field). You notice when we typing in the Google search, that is called Autocomplete. It is mostly used for instant search from the predefined or AJAX based listing.

Use of filters is also known part in Angularjs. Filters are used for filtering the data based on passed argument. Filters are used in template files in angularjs. In filters, we can use expressions as well. And we are going to use all these for getting the autocomplete functionality.
Example of filters in template file is,
Ex.(ng-repeat=”i in items | filtersearch:searchString”).
Here, filtersearch is a name of filter and ‘searchString’ is arguments that it will passed text parameter. Whatever we will put into the Textbox, it will be passed as an array and it will be stored as an elements of an Array.
