How to use Password InputMode for a TextField but without masking the characters?

As the title says,

I have in my .qml file the next TextField:

TextField {
                    hintText: "Hello"
                    inputMode: TextFieldInputMode.Password
                    input.submitKey: SubmitKey.Search
                    verticalAlignment: VerticalAlignment.Top
                    textStyle {
                        base: SystemDefaults.TextStyles.BigText

 But I don't want to mask the characters, and all I could find was that  TextFieldInputMode.Password  enables the masking, that should mean that you can disable it.

I was especting something along the lines of: TextFieldInputMode.enableMasking(boolean mask)


Can someone help me? Thanks
