Deactivate input field, NOT set interactable to false

How do I ensure my inputfield in UI 4.6 stops picking up keyboard input after I have submitted using enter or clicked on another object?

Setting intractable to false makes the input field no longer pickup mouse clicks.

This is a clarification of this question:

I have tried the following but this doesn’t work:


void StopInput(InputField _input) {
		print (_input.text);
		_input.DeactivateInputField ();

Where myInput is a inputfield created in c#.

Try this:

_input.enabled = false;
