Need help with building custom auto suggest on Google Places

Hi,

I want to build a simple auto suggest powered by Google Places APIs but am unable to do so.

I can’t use the in-built Searchbox as it doesn’t expose few parameters that Google Places APIs support. (The ones mentioned here: https://developers.google.com/places/web-service/autocomplete)

I have also tried “Google Maps Extended”, “Google Places by airdev”, and “Google Autocomplete” plugins, but facing some or the other issue with all of these.

I even tried the “Repeating group” method where I create an input text box to take input from user, and show results in an RG. However, it shows results and in a blink it disappears.

Any suggestions on how to go about it?

Thanks,
Mukesh

Anyone knowledgeable about it?
