Xignite TypeAhead Functionality Simplifies Financial Mobile and Web App Development
The TypeAhead functionality is similar to the Google Search AutoComplete feature, providing matching stock symbols and company names in a dropdown menu as a user types characters in a field. The dropdown interactively refines the list as a user types additional characters, and supports multiple stock symbologies popular in the financial industry. Integrating Xignite’s TypeAhead feature with a mobile app or web site only takes a few lines of code.
“Everyone expects TypeAhead functionality in an app today, yet building it is not always easy given the amount of data involved, and can take developers off track,” said Stephane Dubois, Xignite CEO and Founder. “We hope by making our TypeAhead feature freely available we can help our fellow developers revolutionize the financial services industry, and we are excited to launch the first of our free APIs.”
