    I need to set the foreground color of the watermark to Silver or a shade of gray & font style to italic. And, I need the text (entered by user) to be in black & font style to be normal.

    How do I do this? I tried using the WatermarkTemplate but I'm not able to get the desired style. Please help me in this regard.

    Hi Scott,

    You could use the following code:

    <!--TODO: Do your custom styling here. -->
    <telerik:RadWatermarkTextBox Foreground="Green" WatermarkContent="Enter your text here...">
                <!--TODO: Do your custom styling here. -->
                <TextBlock Foreground="Pink" Text="{Binding}" />

    I also attached the project I used to try it.

    Hope this helps.
