Clear textField Button

In the KitchenSink app, if you go to the Controls tab, then go to Text Field > The Rest and then you click on the text field (give it focus), you'll notice a little "x" image shows up on the right that lets you clear the text field.

I looked all through textfield_therest.js for where this might be instantiated, and I don't see it.

Does anyone know how I can access this feature?

  • clearButtonMode: Titanium.UI.INPUT_BUTTONMODE_ONFOCUS

    clearButtonMode: Titanium.UI.INPUT_BUTTONMODE_ALWAYS


    It's all in that file.

    • I assume this is ignored on Android or is there a way of displaying the clear-x in the textfield for Android? Is there a way to put any icons in the textfield?

      a little more documentation would have been nice - the API does not really answer questions like this one.
