A common request over the past couple of years has been to add a text field that supports a clear button in the end, we used to have a common answer on how this can be implemented but we didn’t have an actual implementation builtin despite this being a relatively common request.
At first I thought this is something we should implement natively but it turns out that this doesn’t exist natively in Android so we just implemented this as a wrapper to the TextField e.g. replace this:
You can also specify the size of the clear icon if you wish. This is technically just a
Container with the text field style and a button to clear the text at the edge.
Global Context Update
After posting about the new CN class last week we added a lot of new features into it. The API now supports capabilities from
Storage both of which should allow easier storage.
We are still a bit conflicted about some of the more elaborate API’s such as database, contacts etc.
