Search bar in app


I want to know how to add a search bar to my app. It seems really cool and if anyone can help me figure it out or tell me how to do it, that would be a big help. Thanks!

What do you want to search ?

I want to be able to search through different labels for things. I'm making an auction app and I want people to be able to search for the items so they can find them easier. Thanks!

Folks tend to store their data in lists of some kind.

These lists can be displayed in listpickers or listviews, the stock versions of which have a search / filter bar already included.

You can of course, create your own search bar, using a textbox and blocks (and either a clock timer or an extension)

Is there any way you could show me either in pictures or in a video how to do it? I kind of get what you're saying, but it's also kind of confusing.

Can you attach your current aia ?
