'''This is a simple example of how to use suggestion text.
In this example you setup a word_list at the begining. In this case
'the the quick brown fox jumps over the lazy old dog'. This list along
with any new word written word in the textinput is available as a
suggestion when you are typing. You can press tab to auto complete the text.
