Bug Description

When setting focus programmatically on a TextField the input area doesn't receive focus correctly if the keyboard has been previously dismissed by the user while in that field.

Dismissing the keyboard removes activeFocus from the input component inside the TextField, and this is never restored when setting focus on the TextField as a whole (it does get restored if the TextField is clicked by the user).

Steps to reproduce:

1) Run the following QML:

import QtQuick 2.4
import Ubuntu.Components 1.3

Column {
    width: 600
    height: 800
    TextField {
        id: field

        anchors {
            left: parent.left
            right: parent.right
    Button {
        text: "Set Focus"
        anchors {
            left: parent.left
            right: parent.right
        onClicked: {

2) Tap the input area

3) Swipe down on the keyboard to dismiss it

4) Press "Set Focus" button

Expected result:

TextField should receive focus, display the input caret and show the keyboard

Actual result:

The TextField receives focus, but the input component inside it doesn't receive activeFocus and the input caret and keyboard aren't displayed
