  1. It is very good!
    Exactly what I was searching for.
    I just had one question to extend the current project…
    can autocomplete(suggestions having a domain on a local listview) be implemented into the current searchbar without causing problems with my current project, as this is just a part of my project…?

  2. What if I want to have tabs below the search-bar, like on Google Play Store main screen, that get snapped and stuck at the top if you scroll down?

    1. There is a simple way create the search view inside fragment’s layout . by using
      ((AppCompatActivity)getActivity()).setSupportActionBar(your_toobar_id); inside your fragments onCreateView (You are setting your fragments toobar as the default toolbar). Hope this help.
