The filter reveal feature makes is easy to build a simple autocomplete with local data. When a filterable list has the
data-filter-reveal="true", it will auto-hide all the list items when the search field is blank. The
data-filter-placeholder attribute can be added to specify the placeholder text for the filter.
Any listview filter with more than 100-200 items may be slow to perform on a mobile device so we recommend using this feature for autocomplete situations with a relatively small number of items. If you need to search against a longer list of values, we provide a way to create a filter with a remote data source.
