I am using AutoCompleteTextView and want to limit the number of dropdown items visible at a time on screen. Currently it fills up the screen but can i limit it to say 2 items with a scroll bar for displaying more.

Yes, but can anyone point me to a place where I can make that dropdown list out of items that match a datamodel using an alternative filter, as opposed to the default which starts matching at the beginning of each item's string?

Unfortunately, I'd already done the same search back in February and got the same result. It didn't help.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
