I want form text fields INSIDE the box instead of above it.

SOLVE

Rather than having the text fields above each box in a form, i want the text field INSIDE the box.  When the user clicks on the box, is disapears and they can start typing. This is pretty common so i imagine there is a way to do it.

Hi @ccottam 

 

What you are looking for is placeholder text - edit your form, remove the label and replace it with placeholder text:

Be advised however, the CSS of your form can affect how this appears in production, and placeholders instead of labels may not work well for all form field types. 


Hope this helps.
