I am encountering an issue with the SFComboBox because it cannot clear or reset the combobox after refreshing the page. 
For example.
I select values from the combobox and tried to save the selected values. When I start to open the page where the combobox is placed, the value selected are still in there.
I can't make the selected value be clear because it can not trigger the SelectionChanged.
I am using token settings in order to multi select a value.

Can someone or did the syncfusion team has the solution or fix for this feature? 
Thank you in advance.

I'm still seeing this issue in Was it supposed to have been fixed as of that version?

This is in a UWP program. When there are items in an SfComboBox, setting SelectedItem to null doesn't clear the selected item, regardless of the value of DataSource. And in iOS, setting SelectedItem to null when DataSource is null is causing an unhandled exception.
