React Evergreen is a popular front-end library with a set of React components for building beautiful products as this library is flexible, sensible defaults, and User friendly. Autocomplete Component is used for auto-completing the free text value with the option value. It basically allows the user to type and select the item from a list of options. We can use the following approach in ReactJS to use the Evergreen Autocomplete Component.

  • popoverMinWidth: It is used to denote the minimum height of the result’s container.
  • popoverMaxHeight: It is used to denote the maximum height of the result’s container.
