    Automatically clear default value on focus and replace if blank

    Asked by phantomdentist on March 23, 2011 at 10:24 AM

    Is there a built in way to clear a form fields default value on focus and replace the value if the field is left empty and not focused? This is a really handy trick for saving space.

    If this is not avaliable as a built in feature will external scripts work ok to do this?

    As of now, it is not possible within the Form Builder but I believe it can be done by anyone who is knowledgeable with JavaScript.
