    Can we use multi color text in place holder?

    Asked by ewsnet on June 15, 2017 at 06:14 AM

    Hi Team


    Can we use multi color text in place holder? like we use text as Name and we wanted to mark it as mandatory, as there is no option to display mandatory filed by default (refer this link:http://prntscr.com/fk127x), so we added (*) with Name field, but Name and * color is same (black), so is there any possibility to mark * color as red or any other through CSS or any other way.


    Pls suggest

    You can use the below CSS to recolor your placeholders.


        color : red;


    I am somewhat lost on what you are aiming to do, we could try an alternate way if you can elaborate on the issue.
