Placeholder text that disappears only upon typing, not when entering textbox

  • I'm looking to create placeholder text (ghosting text) to help users know what to type in the field, but I want it to act very similar to on-line forms where the placeholder text does not disappear upon entering a textbox, but only disappears if you type new text into it.

  • Followup question - Most people would use ENTER or TAB keys to navigate from one textbox to the next; however, if a user were to click to enter a textbox with their mouse in the middle of the placeholder text, and begin to type, it would "break it" and make the placeholder text become part of what's being currently typed. Is there a solution to this? Thank you again for your help!
