    International Telephone Picker: Option to change placeholder and add sub-label under input field

    Asked by Kailash108 on May 12, 2015 at 08:24 AM

    The gray Hint example (number) can not be changed in the widget International Telephone Picker

    It would be good if one could change it, because it does not look so nice with "e.g." in a language other than English.

    And it would be great if one could write something under the field as well.

    Apologies for the inconvenience. I will forward these request to our developers to have it checked.

    Please do take note that we're unable to provide an expected date to when this will be implemented or even be considered, but rest assure that the developers are already aware of this request.

    Thank you.

    You can now edit the placeholder from the widget settings: 

    As for the sublabel - please add the following CSS Code under the Custom CSS tab as shown below: 


    .intl-tel-input.pretty:after {

        content: "Custom Sub Label";

        font-size: 10px;

        display: block;

        color: gray;



    You can modify the code by changing the content and color values to fit the message and style of your form. 

    If you need assistance - please let us know.
