Android Place Autocomplete Integration


Example

The autocomplete feature in the Google Places API for Android provides place predictions to user. While user types in the search box, autocomplete shows places according to user's queries.

AutoCompleteActivity.java

private TextView txtSelectedPlaceName;

@Override
protected void onCreate(@Nullable Bundle savedInstanceState) {
    super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
    setContentView(R.layout.activity_autocomplete);

    txtSelectedPlaceName = (TextView) this.findViewById(R.id.txtSelectedPlaceName);

    PlaceAutocompleteFragment autocompleteFragment = (PlaceAutocompleteFragment)
            getFragmentManager().findFragmentById(R.id.fragment_autocomplete);

    autocompleteFragment.setOnPlaceSelectedListener(new PlaceSelectionListener() {
        @Override
        public void onPlaceSelected(Place place) {
            Log.i(LOG_TAG, "Place: " + place.getName());
            txtSelectedPlaceName.setText(String.format("Selected places : %s  - %s" , place.getName(), place.getAddress()));
        }

        @Override
        public void onError(Status status) {
            Log.i(LOG_TAG, "An error occurred: " + status);
            Toast.makeText(AutoCompleteActivity.this, "Place cannot be selected!!", Toast.LENGTH_SHORT).show();
        }
    });

}

}
