Qt Creator: How to empty / reset the search pattern field?
how can I reset or erase the entries in the search pattern field of the "Search" Tab (the console that is available through Alt+2) in the Qt Creator?
Thanking you in advance for your responses.
Do you mean if you search through the "Search Results" ?
Yes! Thank you for your answer
There's the cross at the right of the search field but I'm not sur that's what you want
I wanted to delete an entry in the combobox
nex to the lineedit (with the cross) you probably mean.
This is the search results tab:
"Scope: " <Combobox>
"Search for: " <LineEdit (with the X)>
<Checkbox> "Case .." <Checkbox> "Whole..." <Checkbox> "..Regular.."
"File pattern: " <Combobox>
I am talking about the last combobox "file pattern"
Which version of Qt Creator are you currently using ?
(based on Qt v5.2.1)
Thanks by the way for answering and kleeping up
Well… You have found a pretty good question, it looks like you currently can't outside of edition Qt Creator's configuration file.
You could try looking at the "bug report system":http://bugreports.qt-project.org to see if someone already talks about it, if not you could consider opening a new suggestion

Check into QtCreator.ini hidden file at path /home/user/.config/QtProject/
Delete assigned values.
