package com.example.autocompletetextview;  

import android.os.Bundle;  
import android.app.Activity;  
import android.graphics.Color;  
import android.view.Menu;  
import android.widget.ArrayAdapter;  
import android.widget.AutoCompleteTextView;  

public class MainActivity extends Activity {  
    String[] language ={"C","C++","Java",".NET","iPhone","Android","ASP.NET","PHP"};  
    @Override  
    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {  
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);  
        setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);  

        //Creating the instance of ArrayAdapter containing list of language names  
           ArrayAdapter adapter = new ArrayAdapter  
            (this,android.R.layout.select_dialog_item,language);  
        //Getting the instance of AutoCompleteTextView  
           AutoCompleteTextView actv= (AutoCompleteTextView)findViewById(R.id.autoCompleteTextView1);  
           actv.setThreshold(1);//will start working from first character  
           actv.setAdapter(adapter);//setting the adapter data into the AutoCompleteTextView  
           actv.setTextColor(Color.RED);  
 
    }  

    @Override  
    public boolean onCreateOptionsMenu(Menu menu) {  
        // Inflate the menu; this adds items to the action bar if it is present.  
        getMenuInflater().inflate(R.menu.activity_main, menu);  
        return true;  
    }
