    Hello!

    I have a log-in screen in my game, and the username/password fields are using TMP UGUI components. If the user logs in, and then chooses to log out, I want the fields to be completely blank.

    I've tried setting the .text property to "", but that had weird issues. The text would result in being blank, but the placeholder wouldn't appear, and clicking the text box would result in your previous entry showing up. I also tried .SetText, with the same results.

    Is there a clear way to do this?

    Thank you!

    Make sure you are changing the text on the TMP_InputField .text property and not on the underlying text component (child).
