Hello, Carlos, 
 
By default, the clear button is displayed once the user enters some input. It doesn't matter whether the control is focused or not. The clear button will always be visible if there is some text. 

public RadForm1()
{
    InitializeComponent();
 
    this.radTextBox1.ShowClearButton = true;
 
    this.radTextBox1.GotFocus += radTextBox1_GotFocus;
    this.radTextBox1.LostFocus += radTextBox1_LostFocus;
}
 
private void radTextBox1_LostFocus(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    this.radTextBox1.ShowClearButton = false;
}
 
private void radTextBox1_GotFocus(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
    this.radTextBox1.ShowClearButton = true;
}

If you need to show the clear button only when the control is focused, you can use the following code snippet:
 
 
I hope this information helps. If you need any further assistance please don't hesitate to contact me.
