Text placeholders

Is it possible to set up text placeholder for textareas without querying the DOM and applying it manually?



Could you, please describe your case in more details?  Also, any examples/screenshots will be appreciated

Tetiana Markova,

When I have a text field like this:

I want to have some text inside it while the user has not filled it yet, like when using standard placeholder attribute on an input field:


Thank you for your specification.
You need to define "placeholder" property for your element in the diff array. Please, see my example for JobTitle field in the ContactPageV2 schema:
    "operation": "merge",
    "parentName": "ProfileContainer",
    "propertyName": "items",
    "name": "JobTitleProfile",
    "values": {
        "bindTo": "JobTitle",
        "controlConfig": {
            "className": "Terrasoft.TextEdit",
                "bindTo": "Resources.Strings.Placeholder"
            "classes": ["placeholderOpacity"]
You can also find other examples in the base packages.


Tetiana Markova,

Thank you very much, it works nicely.
