Display the column labels in the results of an auto-complete feature
I have an input text field that has an auto-complete feature in a UI. The auto-complete feature uses 7 properties of a single page (3 used for search and the other ones are just showed for information).
Is this a way to display the properties labels on top of the auto-complete results ? So the user can know the signification for each column of the results ?

There is no such possible option in auto complete. Auto complete is to suggest some values only to user and ultimately it selects one value as per the property reference. User can be provided with more than a property for better understanding of what they are selecting. For example if a value should be selected from a name-value pair, value may not be meaningful sometime hence name is also shown to user so that they have better idea of what they are selecting. If you still need to give more information to user may be you may add a tooltip or use a help icon next to the field to give user better understanding of what are the values getting displayed.
I do not believe there is an OOTB way to do this. But it does sound like a really good enhancement request. You can however categorize your results to better organize the data. But it can only be one category.
So this might help you? But I can understand if it does not quite meet your needs. I think you're asking for column headers for every column right? Like if you had three here to know this represents name, dept, full/part time, etc.
