How to Make Google Autocomplete Places API work with Ion-Searchbar

Hi guys,

I am trying to add google.maps.places.Autocomplete feature in <ion-searchbar>. I have made this functionality work fine with a simple <input> element but having a difficulty adding it to <ion-searchbar>.

I am aware that the search bar has an output event ion-input, andngModel directive that can be used to integrate with user input. But as a newbie to ionic, I am unable do figure it out.

Can someone please help me out on this?

Thank you very much!
