    This bug is reproducable on the RadInput demo page

    1. Open the demo page (eg: Input - RadTextBox - First Look page)
    2. Click on either multi-line or single-line textbox. The empty message disappears and ready to receive key strokes.
    3. Without typing anything into the textbox, leave the page by clicking on other browser tab, or windows, or even the taskbar.
    4. Voila! The default empty message on that page (ie: type here) now becomes the value of the textbox.
    5. This is confirmed by the event message stated below it showing: ValueChanged (Client Event): OldValue=; NewValue=type here;

    Hi Razak,

    The observed issue is a specific browser behavior. In some cases the empty message can be filled by the browser inside the textbox. When the browser populates this message, we can't tell that is the empty text, since the design of the  RadTextBox supports the input to have value the same as the empty message.

    However, this issue is already forwarded to our Development team for further research and in case they find a proper solution for it, the fix will be included in some of our future releases.

    I hope this helps.
