This is fixed when typing over a selection. But not fixed for the controls which has a placeholder text and gets cleared when the text becomes non-empty.

Current implementation will enter an empty string to indicate the underlying text to clear the current selection.

Leaving this open to track the placeholder text issue.

Because of this, the candidate list comes over the placeholder text making the whole thing not readable.

To fix this, we can commit an empty string before the actual typing begins. This will make sure the underlying control gets an event about the typing started.
