    I use the element MultiSelect like this :

    <select id="MyId" data-placeholder="My text"></select>
            dataTextField: "Name",
            dataValueField: "Id",
            itemTemplate: "<div>#:data.Name#</div>",
            dataSource: {
                type: "json",
                serverFiltering: true,
                serverPaging: true,
                pageSize: 2,
                transport: {
                    read: {
                      url: DM3_Reporting.RestServiceUrl + 'fleet',
                        type: "GET"

    All work fine, but I need to change the style of the data-placeholder : "MyText".

    Can you tell me how can I change this style in my css ?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi Gabriel,

    In order to achieve the expected result you could use the following CSS rules:
    .k-multiselect-wrap>.k-input {
       color: #f02c0c; /* specify the default input color */
    .k-multiselect-wrap>.k-input:focus {
       color: #000; /* specify the focused input color */
