ionic2-RC.2 - How to enable keyboard autocomplete/autocorrections



I am not able to figure out how to enable keyboard autocomplete. I tried with ion-input and ion-textarea, when keyboard opens and user starts typing autocomplete is not showing up.

Any suggestions how could I make this work?

Thank you


right now these are disabled as it is a common anti-pattern on the web


Hi Mike,

Thanks for quick reply. But, I am not sure what do you mean by “common anti-pattern on the web”? I mean, if I use my Android phone to open some website, for example Facebook using Chrome browser, and I want to write new status on Facebook I am getting predictions on my keyboard. I am getting the same if I use some native app. So I don’t understand why is this disabled?



Here is one video example where autocomplete is not working when you type but it is working when you swipe.

which is strange behaviour, right?


Tested more.

Nexus 7 (2012) with Android 4.4.4 is showing suggestions, Nexus 5 with Android 6.0.1 is not showing suggestions.
