Displaying Placeholder Text In a Field

Have you ever wanted to display the grey text that describes what a text field does?

Placeholder Text Example

Google search field in Safari

Placeholder text can be very useful as it provides a visual queue to the user about what the field does while not requiring any extra space in your UI.

Using custom properties and behaviors (new in Revolution 3.5) you can easily add this feature to fields in your applications. See the lesson How To Create Field Placeholder Text Using Behaviors.
