Delete the text using the native iOS clear field icon instead (the small circle with a cross)  - there's a setting for that  mentioned  in the control properties list, in the release docs.

Switching from LiveCode fields to the native UITextField object breaks this method as the UITextField appears to float over the top of all LiveCode objects. Is there any way to elevate a LiveCode object above the native UITextField?  The only workaround I can think of is to set the "borderStyle" to none (making the UITextField transparent) and then simulate a click using a frontScript to see if the user tapped inside the rect of the button under the UITextField.  Feels ugly.
