Thats exactly what I would also do if it would be my component, but  
unfortunately I don't have an access to TextInput { id: input } which is  
inside the ComboBox.

Actually this is not fully true. I managed to workaround this particular  
case using the following ugly hack:

for(var i = 0; i < children.length; ++i) {
if(children[i].inputMethodHints != undefined)
	console.log('TextInput found')

But still would be nice to get more generic solution.
