    Hi, the text box for my form has a default value. Can the default value instantly clear when the website user clicks into the box to enter data? I don't want them to have to delete the default value to enter their information.

    You can see the form at dollarday22.com. Thanks!

    Thank you for contacting us.

    I think that default value is not designed to be cleared. As an alternative to default value you can try a Hint Example option. It will remove the hint text upon filling out the input.

    Example:

    Note, we can style that Hint Example (placeholder) text with custom CSS:

    Style Placeholder Text

    Custom CSS can be injected directly into the form.

    If you need any further assistance, please let us know.
