Hi Atif,

Thanks for contacting Syncfusion support.

Currently there is no direct support for achieving the clear button in Android Entry Control. We cannot provide support for customizing the Xamarin Native control. Please contact Xamarin Support team regarding this support. In Syncfusion we have a similar control named “SfAutoComplete” control which will have a Clear button and suggestions will be listed based on search. Please have the details from the below UG documentation.
