When typing Chinese in the instantsearch SearchBox, people usually use pinyin input. For example, to type 北京 (Beijing), we type “bei’jing” then press the “enter” key, and this is how we get 北京.
The problem is: since the Searchbox has the feature of search-as-you-type, so that it sends a lot of search requests when I type:
Only the last one makes sense because, unlike English, it makes no sense to search these intermediate pinyin, such as b, be, beij, bei’j, etc.
Is there a way to configure the instantsearch so that it only sends the search request with 北京?
