In an application I am developing, I added a search field to add a filter to a list view. after typing a character or two, it is not possible to clear the search with the clear button, only by pressing the del key repeatedly. I have found that if I type a space or remove focus from the search field, I can then clear the field. It looks like clearing is disabled while there are completions available...

After some research, I have found a workaround that works well in my application: Adding Qt.ImNoPredictiveText to the inputMethodHints property makes the clear button works at all times.

Still, this looks like a bug in the SearchField component.

I think this bug lives bit deeper. I can't clear text that is under that keyboard prediction (underlined) from TextField.

I'm quite sure that it worked on some older OS version
