guenni created the topic: Question about placeholder

Hi,

I have one question about the "placeholder function" for textfield properties:

Is behavior of "content" and "placeholder" the same, but only the new browsers work with "placeholder "?

Background:
The content propertie works for textarea but not for textfield in modern browsers.

thanks for support

Hello,

You wrote 'Is behavior of "content" and "placeholder" the same'. Are you by "content" referring to "Value" field in "Properties" of an element in the form?

If you are, the "Placeholder" text is a text that will be displayed and when user clicks on the field, the text will be overwritten. Also, the placeholder text's value won't be saved to record and filed will be considered empty if nothing is entered.

On the other hand, the text in "Value" is like a default value for some field. The user can leave the value as it is or edit it if wanted. The text that you put in value field will be saved to record if it is not edited and the field will not be considered empty (since that is the field's value).

For example an example of "Placeholder" text would be "Enter your city here".
An example an example of "Value" text would be "London".

Let me know whether that clears the situation for you.

Regards,

Mihaela
