Can't replicate input value replacement when triggering item list "on active" status

I was playing in this official sandbox

I noticed the “type ahead” behavior, but I can’t get the same result anywhere (example, type samsung and then use keydown / keyup)

I tried two setups, one following the guide of the Algolia Developer and one using official docs with different look.

In either, I wasn’t able to replicate the type ahead functionality.

I did notice that in the sandbox, the item has a “query” property, but I added that to my items and it still does not work.

How to get that behavior in React?

Well with the official renderer, my queries started autocompleting “on active” for those records with the “query” proeprty.

I spent 6 hours trying to figure this out, and it turns out it was an undocumented feature
