This repository wraps react-native-autocomplete-input, so their limitations will also apply here.

As such:

"Android does not support overflows (#20), for that reason it is necessary to wrap the autocomplete into a absolute positioned view on Android. This will allow the suggestion list to overlap other views inside your component."


render() {
      <View style={styles.autocompleteContainer}>
        <AutoTags {/* your props */} />
        <Text>Some content</Text>


const styles = StyleSheet.create({
  autocompleteContainer: {
    flex: 1,
    left: 0,
    position: 'absolute',
    right: 0,
    top: 0,
    zIndex: 1
