    Hello bkurniawan,

    Unfortunately, it is currently not possible to add the "Hint Example" in the fields of "Configurable List" widgets. It seems the placeholder property is not available for the configurable list fields.

    Let me create a feature request and send it to our back end team. We will get back to you as soon as we have any update form them.

    Thank you!

    Hi, just so you know we made an update to this widget. We just added a way to put hints on supported fields like textbox, textarea and number fields. To use the new configuration see the following examples

    a) for textbox
        Name : text : I'm a hint feature

    b) for textarea
       Comment : textarea : I'm a hint feature

    c) for number
       Number : number : Hint

    A sample output to this:

    Try the new update and let us know your feedback.

    Widget Team
