    Asked on November 08, 2013 at 04:03 AM



    I have a problem with Hint example on text box and text area. I injected the code: 

    ::-webkit-input-placeholder {color:#2a2a2a;}:-moz-placeholder {color:#2a2a2a;}

    in order to change text color of hint example and it works, however, text area hint example color is not what I changed or what I want. it looks different from text box hint area. I dont want to use default value since I am using hint example as label.


    This is my form;


    please help me with this.

    thanks in advance,


    best regads,

    Additionally, how can I prevent small scroll bar in the PLZ box on the picture above? This box has 5 digit number restriction and I dont want small scrolling effect on the right side of the box. I tried to change witdth of the input but scroll bar was still there.  Is it possible to get rif of it?

    Thanks in advance,
