How to remove cross icon in search box

How to remove cross icon in search box

I have added the search box to my datatable and it works fine, but in IE10 I get an clear icon.
How do I
1) Remove this
2) Wire it up to trigger filter to update. Now it removes text but it does not update the datatable content based on the clear filter

    You could use:

    [code]
    $('.dataTables_filter input').attr('type', 'text');
    [/code]

    That will change the input element into a started text input rather than a search box.

    thanks. I am using it with backbone and tried to add this
    "fnInitComplete": function(oSettings, json) {
    this.$('.dataTables_filter input').attr('type', 'text');
    },
    but it did not work :( Is there anyway else to hide it?

    > this.$('.dataTables_filter input')

    Remove the `this.` . `this` in that context is the table node, and the filtering input is outside the table node. Thus your selector won't be finding anything.

    Still didnt work. But I am using it with backbone & marionette so maybe thats why.
    This is how the code looks like

    [code]
    CV.CVCompositeView = Backbone.Marionette.CompositeView.extend({
    itemView: CV.CVtemView,
    appendHtml: function (collectionView, itemView) {
    collectionView.$("tbody").append(itemView.el);
    },
    template: "#compositeView-template",
    onRender: function () {
    var that = this;

    oTable = this.$('#dtTable').dataTable({
    "bStateSave": true,
    "bExpandableGrouping": true,
    "bPaginate": false,
    "bDeferRender": true,
    "bSort": false,
    "bProcessing": true,
    "sDom": '<"infoExtra"f><"infoExtra"i>rt<"clear">',
    "bSortable":false,
    "oLanguage": {
    "sSearch": "Filter: ",
    "sInfo": "Showing _TOTAL_ of _MAX_ entries",
    "sInfoFiltered": ""
    },
    "bAutoWidth": false,
    "fnInitComplete": function (oSettings, json) {
    $('.dataTables_filter input').attr('type', 'text');
    },

    [/code]

    Urgh - looks like it is a "feature". A CSS hack can be used to remove it: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/14007655/remove-ie10s-clear-field-x-button-on-certain-inputs
