No doubt you have all seen form fields which contain prompts for the required inputs, and the prompts are removed when you enter the inputs. Also the prompts return if you leave the input without entering any text.
If you click on any label or input the input prompts will be removed so that you can enter text. If you enter your text then click another field the promt for the entered field will not return. However, if you go back into the same field and delete your text then leave this field the prompt will be displayed.
As an added bonus the prompt text can be a different color to the input text.
All done with just CSS and works in all the latest browsers.
March 2015 - With the latest CSS placeholder and pattern style this will soon be redundant.
Because of all the time and effort spent in producing this demonstration I would ask that you respect my copyright.
