Use Radar's autocomplete component to add address autocomplete to your websites and apps with just a few lines of code.

You can also check out the autocomplete explorer in the dashboard, or check out a full-page maps demo and store locator demo with an autocomplete component.

How it works#

To use the autocomplete component, simply initialize the Radar SDK with your publishable key and specify the container to render the input into.


When creating the autocomplete component, you can provide options to customize the autocomplete behavior, as well as the size and style of the input.

Available options include:
