CKEDITOR.plugins.autocomplete.view

class since 4.10.0 private

Class representing the autocomplete view.

In order to use a different view, implement a new view class and override the CKEDITOR.plugins.autocomplete.getView method.

myAutocomplete.prototype.getView = function() {
    return new myView( this.editor );
};

You can also modify this autocomplete instance on the fly.

myAutocomplete.prototype.getView = function() {
    // Call the original getView method.
    var view = CKEDITOR.plugins.autocomplete.prototype.getView.call( this );

    // Override one property.
    view.itemTemplate = new CKEDITOR.template( '<li data-id={id}><img src="{iconSrc}" alt="..."> {name}</li>' );

    return view;
};

Note: This class is marked as private, which means that its API might be subject to change in order to provide further enhancements.
