Ion-searchbar v4: how do you trigger `ionBlur()` a paste?

I’m using the following to successfully detect a paste event

// <ion-searchbar (ionInput)="searchBarInput($event)"></ >
    if (ev && ev.detail && ev.detail.inputType=="insertFromPaste"){
      console.log("keyboard PASTE detected",;   //

but the data is still null at this time.

I want to fire an ionBlur() event to handle the data, but doesn’t seem to work.

What can I do?
