    I am trying to clear the text in the combobox with autocomplete feature but with no luck? So, in our page we have this functionality that can scan a barcode. I'm catching the keyup for the whole page and then reset the values in the control where the focus is on. When it is in the combobox, I cannot get the text cleared. My barcode indicator is this symbol: ]

    Whenever my focus is on the combobox, it is being left there. I tried to hookup with the keyup event of this control, but I still cannot clear what has been written in the textbox. I did:

    var textbox = this.combobox.FindChildrenOfType<TextBox>();
    if (textbox != null)
    textbox.Text = string.Empty;

    Is there any other way I can clear the text??? Please advise.

    Hello Zamel,

    Did you try setting the Text property of the ComboBox to null? It should remove the entered text. Please give a try and if it doesn't work for you I'll ask you to share some sample code which demonstrates the ComboBox setup.

    I'm looking forward to hearing from you.
