Auto Clear and Restore Form Element

Here’s another neat trick: making the search (or any field for that matter) have an auto clear and restore javascript element. This comes from Perishable Press. <form action=”http://domain.com/” method=”post”> <p> <input value=”Click here and this will disappear..” onfocus=”if(this.value == ‘Click here and this will disappear..’) {this.value = ”;}” onblur=”if (this.value == ”) {this.value = ‘Click […]
