    How to Remove the Field Hover Text hint

    Asked by ssmediator on October 18, 2015 at 06:51 PM
    After a field is filled-in with content (like when you put a number in the Phone field), is there a way to stop the Hover text from popping up?

    You can just remove/disable the Hover Text of the Phone field...

    Is this what you meant? Please let us know if its not. 

    Provide more details so we can understand the requirement.

    Thanks for your reply.  No, it's not what I meant exactly; but I removed the hover text.  What I meant, just to explain, though, is to stop the hover text from popping up when a field is filled in.  In other words, once they fill-in the phone number, there's no need for them to keep seeing the hover text.

    But, I'll save that for another time.  For now, I removed the hover text.

    Thanks again!

    Thank you for explaining clearly. 

    I cannot see an option in the Form Builder for the Hover Text property to behave like how you described. So this is something that cannot be done as of this time.

    However, the current behavior of the Hover Text, I think, was already closer to what you want... when you get past the field, it will hide already.

    So perhaps it is OK to have the Hover Text property enabled as it seems to be a viable option also.
